//For the Vietnam memorial: "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Danny Boy" and, in general, "Sonny Boy."
"First Christmas" by Stan Rogers, the most depressing Christmas song written since "The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot".
//Heard the former on a t.v. special and about lost it. I have two sons and my oldest has a terminal illness...... But this also reminds me of a thread some time back about Sad Christmas Songs - someone was going to make a CD of melancholy holiday music.......ever accomplished?
I think Kevin Sharp singing, "Nobody Knows" is pretty darned sad too.
Hate to admit this, but I guess I've never paid much attention to "Waltzing Matilda" - didn't realize it was sad! (I shouldn't admit this, but now I'd like to know the lyrics!)
