Thread Name: What murder ballad is the saddest? [songs]
Subject: RE: What murder ballad is the saddest?
Tom Hall (curmudgeon) sings one about a daughter who refuses to marry a rich man chosen for her by her father. Father and brother burn her alive - charming. I was horrified the first time I heard it.
