    waitin on joe - his brother is always late for everything and he starts getting irratated waiting on him for their new job.. then hears sirens and finds out his brother tried to beat the morning train so he wouldn't be late again but didn't make it

    just one - lisa shaffer - an only child is killed due to a drunk driver

    what hurts the most - the song implies a "what could've been" theme, while the tear jerker video shows a high school girl trying to cope with the recent death of her boyfriend

    beaches of cheyenne- garth brooks - a rodeo man and his wife get in an argument about him riding in the rodeo, so she tells him she doesn't give a damn if he never comes back from cheyenne..he draws an impossible bull and dies during the ride..when she found out she lost her mind and ran out into the water and drowned..they say you can see her ghost walking the beaches of cheyenne

    want to - sugarland - unrequited love gets me every time

    when whoever's in new england's through with you - reba mcentire - she loves her husband so much she's waiting his affair out, saying he'll always have a home to come back to

    whiskey lullabye - brad paisley & allison krauss - ('nuff said, but it's worth going on) the wife cheats on him, so he becomes an alcoholic and it eventually kills him...she can't get over what she's done to him so she becomes an alcoholic and it kills her also

    travelin soldier - dixie chicks - high school girl and lonely soldier meet right before he leaves to go to war, fall in love while exchanging letters and he dies in the war

    he stopped loving her today - george jones - ('nuff said, but i'll ellaborate for newer listeners) the man is still deeply in love with his ex, he told he'll love her til he dies..spends his whole life obsessing about her..then the song says he stopped loving her today, and it's because he died

    the little girl - john michael montgomery - child abuse and Jesus's faithfulness

    alyssa lies - jason michael carroll - child abuse leading to death

    all that glitters is not gold - dan seals - a single father's struggles raising his daughter and seeing his ex who left them's career taking off as a rodeo star

    just to see you smile - tim mcgraw - again, i'm a sucker for unrequited love..this one's at the pitiful point, you just want to jump in the radio and give him a hug

    don't take the girl - tim mcgraw - his wife may not make it through delivery of their baby and he prays to God "please don't take the girl."

    tough - craig morgan - his wife's strength as she deals with breast cancer

    almost home - craig morgan - homeless man was deep in a dream about his youth, as the singer wakes him up, worried about him, the man is sad because his dream was cut short because he was almost home

    skin - rascal flatts - a young girl's diagnosis with cancer, she loses her hair and is worried about going to the prom bald, her date picks her up and has shaved his head bald also

    stay - sugarland - the husband's mistress struggles with him going back and forth between her and his wife and eventually pulls herself together, breaking up with him

    somebody's hero - jamie o'neal - this one is personal to me, but it's about a mother/daughter relationship starting when the girl is young and her mother is her hero, and ending when the mother is old an in a nursing home and now her daughter is her hero - reminds me of my mama and grandma..my mama never left her side in that nursing home til my grandma died

    baby's gotten good at goodbye - george strait - his woman has tried leaving him many times, but always is crying while she leaves and always comes back..but this time she's left him and didn't cry and he's worried she won't return this time...another personal one to me, i was in an abusive relationship and this song tells my story word for word, except it doesn't give details why she's leaving

    smoky mountain rain - ronnie milsap - just a beautiful song, melody and lyrics about a man returning hom after his attempt at fame and his wife is no longer there...it's a desperate attempt at finding her

    you're gone - diamond rio - i don't understand the underlying meaning of this song, but to me it reminds me of someone with an addiction that his woman helped him through, but now she's gone..it also makes me think of how i'd feel if my husband died "the good news is i'm better for the time we spent together, but the bad news is you're gone."

    probably wouldn't be this way - leann rimes - a young widow's lament to her late husband about how hard it is without him (a personal fave)

    i can still make cheyenne - george strait - a rodeo man is never home with his wife, and she finally tells him not to come home, she's found somebody new..the chilling part is it doesn't seem to affect him like it should, he's still putting the rodeo first

    tell me i was dreaming - travis tritt - not just a breakup, but losing the love of your life..and the video puts an even more heartbreaking
