Sam Stone wins my vote for the saddest song ever recorded
--------------

My mother and her best friend had me playing with the best friend's kid during our childhood. He went to 'Nam - decorated hero (highly decorated). Came back, went to law school, had a family, and fell apart. Died on the streets. Got the whole fancy funeral at Arlington, but it was too late for him. Very sad. And occurs more than people realize. From Desert Storm, Iraq, and Afghanistan, too.
