Thread Name: What murder ballad is the saddest? [songs]
Subject: RE: What murder ballad is the saddest?
'The Old Oak Tree', sung by Cathal McConnell on the first Boys of the Lough album. By comparison, most of the songs mentioned here are about as sad as 'Ernie, The Fastest Milkman In The West'. Which ia also sad, but in another way.
