We’re talking about “saddest country songs” over at MCB. Since the only country songs I know are Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton I’m out of the running pretty early.
But then someone brought up Dan Fogelberg’s Same Old Lang Syne, which got me to thinking.
Isn’t that essentially the same song as Harry Chapin’s “Taxi”? With beer instead of pot, of course.
