Thread Name: What murder ballad is the saddest? [songs]
Subject: RE: What murder ballad is the saddest?
I sing nearly all of the sad ballads mentioned, For me, Sheath and Knife is the saddest: the brother shoots his sister when she is in the act of giving birth and buries her and the baby and then goes back to a family party. This is hard to sing.
