Thread Name: This Song Makes me Weep
Subject: RE: This Song Makes me Weep
The Band Played Waltzing Matilda clearly has the most votes on this thread ~~ &, in all seriousness, most deservedly surely. I record another vote for it.

Peter Bellamy's Farewell To The Land does it for me also ~~ I quoted this verse in my obit of Pete in The Guardian:

Now I raise my sons in a small caravan
For the cottage where my roots were put down
Has been sold by the farmer to a rich city man
Where he spends a few weekends from Town.

Truly heartbreaking.
