    John Michael Montgomery "The Little Girl"

    Her parents never took the young girl to church

    Never spoke of His name

    Never read her His word

    Two non-believers walking lost in this world

    Took their baby with them

    What a sad little girl

    Her daddy drank all day and mommy did drugs

    Never wanted to play

    Or give kisses and hugs

    She'd watch the TV and sit there on the couch

    While her mom fell asleep

    And her daddy went out

    And the drinking and the fighting

    just got worse every night

    Behind their couch she'd be hiding

    Oh what a sad little life

    And like it always does, the bad just got worse

    With every slap and every curse

    Until her daddy in a drunk rage one night

    Used a gun on her mom and then took his life

    And some people from the city took the girl far away

    To a new mom and a new dad

    kisses and hugs everyday

    Her first day of Sunday school the teacher walked in

    And a small little girl

    Stared at a picture of Him

    She said I know that man up there on that cross

    I don't know His name

    But I know He got off

    Cause He was there in my old house

    and held me close to His side

    As I hid there behind our couch

    The night that my parents died

    "Whiskey Lullaby" by Brad Paisley and Allison Kraus is the 2nd saddest.

    Concrete Angel sung by Martina McBride

    She walks to school with the lunch she packed

    Nobody knows what she's holdin' back

    Wearin' the same dress she wore yesterday

    She hides the bruises with linen and lace

    The teacher wonders but she doesn't ask

    It's hard to see the pain behind the mask

    Bearing the burden of a secret storm

    Sometimes she wishes she was never born

    Through the wind and the rain

    She stands hard as a stone

    In a world that she can't rise above

    But her dreams give her wings

    And she flies to a place where she's loved

    Concrete angel

    Somebody cries in the middle of the night

    The neighbors hear, but they turn out the lights

    A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate

    When morning comes it'll be too late

    Repeat Chorus

    A statue stands in a shaded place

    An angel girl with an upturned face

    A name is written on a polished rock

    A broken heart that the world forgot

    If Something Should Happen

    Darrel Worley

    *sometimes I can make it all the way to the line about taking the son camping without tearing up, but I don't think I have ever gotten past "he's always known your my best friend" lol

    Buddy you and I go way back

    Camp Legune, all through highschool and before that.

    So I don't mind tellin you I'm scared to death.

    The doctor is goin in on the 25th

    It's the same thing my daddy had

    Thank God they caught it fast.

    But if something should happen

    Stop in some time and say hello to Catherine

    You and Marianne could always keep her laughing

    Because shes gonna need a lot of that

    Take her out to a movie

    It's gonna take sometime before shes back on her feet.

    I know you think I'll be fine and I'm talkin crazy

    But theres always that chance

    That's why I'm askin

    If something should happen

    Little Nathan is growing up so fast

    This November he'll turn 10

    He wants to play quarterback.

    I'm supposed to coach his team this fall

    But I may not get to afterall

    He's gonna need someone to catch a pass

    And to throw it back

    If something should happen

    Oh promise me you'll take that boy out campin

    Throw a line out in the water every now and then

    Answer any questions that he has

    Maybe once he gets older

    You can sit and have that first cold beer together

    And tell him a couple stories on his father

    He's always known your my best friend.

    That's why I'm askin

    If something should happen

    I hope I live until I'm 80

    And I get to see my son get married

    And have babies

    And make a million more memories with my wife.

    Yeah buddy I pray alright

    But if it's my time to leave

    Could you watch over them for me?

    It is an Alan Jackson song from the mid 90s. It tells the tale of how a boy and a girl fall in love, grow up, and get married. Then, she dies having his baby. Tears welled up in my eyes the first time I heard it.

    Not quite a sad song, but I cried the first time I heard "Austin" by Blake Shelton.

    The song "Little Red Balloon" by Christina something (?) is really sad.

    Also, "What If She's An Angel" by Tommy Shane Steiner. P.S. Does anyone know what happened to him?

    Has to be "Whiskey Lullaby"

    by Brad Paisley (feat. Alison Krauss)....even the video is crazy sad!!! Left the YouTube link so you could see it!

    She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette

    She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget

    We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time

    But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind

    Until the night

    [1st Chorus]

    He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger

    And finally drank away her memory

    Life is short but this time it was bigger

    Than the strength he had to get up off his knees

    We found him with his face down in the pillow

    With a note that said I'll love her till I die

    And when we buried him beneath the willow

    The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

    (Sing lullaby)

    The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself

    For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath

    She finally drank her pain away a little at a time

    But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind

    Until the night

    [2nd Chorus]

    She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger

    And finally drank away his memory

    Life is short but this time it was bigger

    Than the strength she had to get up off her knees

    We found her with her face down in the pillow

    Clinging to his picture for dear life

    We laid her next to him beneath the willow

    While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

    (Sing lullaby)

    "Lightening" by Eric Church, especially now that he has a video to fit the song. Also "The Dance" by Garth Brooks. "When I get Where I'm Going" by Brad Paisley and Dolly Parton.

    "One Last Time" by Dusty Drake. You think it's a song about breaking up, but at the end the guy calls his wife because his plane is going to crash.
