    When Jess Hitchcock comes in with the second verse as the images of Adam Goodes (subject of the song, football player chased out of the sport due to some racist morons) come up behind the band, someone always seems to be cutting onions

    “Gallo Del Cielo” by Joe Ely (yes, a song about a chicken makes me cry).

    “Live Forever” by Billy Joe Shaver

    I lost a close friend from high school and a good buddy (actually a band member) while serving in the US Navy (1966 - 1974). This song tugs at my heart and Yes! even at my age the ache becomes tears!

    Right now any song by my friend and bandmate Paul who passed suddenly and unexpectedly this week. Watching YouTube clips and listening to radio shows and other recordings we did is bittersweet but comforting. Tears streaming down punctuated with occasional smiles.

    Here’s one of his. In our band he mostly played accordion. But he played acoustic on his songs. (I’m on lap steel)

    I don't think there's any one song that does, it depends on the frame of mine I'm in. "Wish You Were Here" has both made me a bit misty and gotten me pumped up in different circumstances.

    This goes all the way back to getting my heart broken for the first time. Still reminds me of how much that hurt...

    Not my favorite capture, but if I had to choose one Paul song - and thank God I don’t, it just might be this one.

    IMHO, this is the saddest song ever written. At first Kathy refused to do it live, saying she couldn't get through it without crying. very moving, although I don't cry because I'm a man's man & we just don't do that.



    This one's pretty good for turning on the water-works.

    The chorus destroys me




    And for me.
    My mother loved singing this song. She loved Johnny Cash. So, Johnny Cash singing one of her favourite songs...
