Thread Name: What murder ballad is the saddest? [songs]
Subject: RE: What murder ballad is the saddest?
Goodman, Schwerner & Chaney by Tom Paxton.

"James Chaney, your body exploded in pain
And the beating they gave you is pounding my brain
For they murdered much more with their dark, bloody chains
And the body of pity lies bleeding."
