    Oh Please ... everyone knows it was Possum that recorded the saddest country song

    George Jones held a corner of the market on sad songs, for sure...

    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.

    You guys aren't even close. The Grandfather of country music lived it. Dieing in real life, spent many hours on a cot to gain strength to record his next song. Has a lot of classics covered today. All the greats paid tribute to him. He knew he eas going to die and wrote about it. Of course not all of his songs were not about his TB... Amazing lyrics. Thanks to my Grandaddy introducing him to me. Like my granddaddy he worked freight trains.

    Tomorrow is forever by Dolly Parton and Porter Wagner and death don't have no mercy by the grateful dead.not written by them but they pulled it off in concert..its not country but they covered it including tomorow is forever and big river and mama tried and on and on. Sorry, I know it's a bit off topic but just had to go there. Brokedown Palace.

    Footprints in the snow comes to mind also.

    Jimmy Martin did a couple real tear jerkers, as King of Bluegrass.

    Video sucks, close your eyes and listen, but song is great and sad.
