Please! The old parlor songs put the modern tearjerkers you've cited to shame. What about "Over the Hill to the Poorhouse" or "Little Blossom" (with the drunken father accidentally bashing out the brains of his adorable curly-headed 4-year-old) or "Put My Little Shoes Away" or "Mary of the Wild Moor" (at the end, not only are all the principal characters dead, but the house has fallen down). Those Victorians knew a thing or two about mayhem and misery!
