    "Green Green Grass Of Home"

    The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
    and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
    Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
    It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
    Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
    It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
    The old house is still standing tho' the paint is cracked and dry,
    and there's that old oak tree I used to play on.

    Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries.
    It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
    Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
    It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.


    Then I awake and look around me, at four grey wall surround me
    and I realize that I was only dreaming.
    For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre -
    arm in arm we'll walk at daybreak.
    Again I touch the green, green grass of home.
    Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree
    as they lay me neath the green, green grass of home.

    Hank Snow - Nobody's Child circa 1949

    I was slowly passing an orphan's home one day
    And stopped there for a moment just to watch the children play
    Alone a boy was standing and when I asked him why
    He turned with eyes that could not see and he began to cry

    I'm nobody's child, I'm nobody's child
    I'm like a flower just growing wild
    No mommy's kisses and no daddy's smile
    Nobody wants me I'm nobody's child

    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Four Walls of Raiford

    Well them four walls of raiford, closing in on me
    Doin three to five hard labor, for armed robbery
    I had two years behind, but I could not wait the time
    Everytime I thought about it, well I died some more inside

    And I had stripes on my back, memories that hurt
    For the only time I seen sunshine is when I hit the dirt
    Diggin ditches for the chain gang, sleepin in the cold
    Oh lord please forgive me for I could not wait no more

    Sam Stone by John Prine

    Sam Stone was alone
    When he popped his last balloon
    Climbing walls while sitting in a chair
    Well, he played his last request
    While the room smelled just like death
    With an overdose hovering in the air
    But life had lost its fun
    And there was nothing to be done
    But trade his house that he bought on the G, I. Bill
    For a flag draped casket on a local heroes' hill

    There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes,
    Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose.
    Little pitchers have big ears,
    Don't stop to count the years,
    Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios.
    Mmm....

    You're not aware that's a cover of a Trent Reznor song?

    Kids...

    The song isn't about drug addiction either.

    The Felice Brothers - Hey Hey Revolver

    I put this shovel down
    Hire me on better grounds
    I can't afford no gas
    I walk to work on the overpass
    My teenage daughter's knocked up
    Well Jeanie this time, you really fucked up
    You oughta be in the hospital
    But I can't afford to go, the bill

    Hey hey revolver
    Don't lead me on
    Your shiny barrel
    Is long and narrow
    Hey hey revolver

    I put this shovel down
    I walk the line into Hudson town
    The blue Burger King billboard signs reminds me of her mother's eyes
    She ran off to be a T.V. star
    I hope she found what she was lookin' for
    I promised Jeanie she'd see L.A.
    If I ever made some cash someday

    Hey hey revolver
    Don't lead me on
    Your shiny barrel
    Is long and narrow
    Hey hey Revolver

    Pink Floyd - wish you were here

    So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell?
    Blue skies from pain?

    Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
    A smile from a veil?
    Do you think you can tell?

    And did they get to you trade your heroes for ghosts?
    Hot ashes for trees?
    Hot air for a cool breeze?
    Cold comfort for change?
    And did you exchange a walk on par
    In the war for a lead role in a cage?

    How I wish, how I wish you were here
    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl
    Year after year
    Running over the same old ground
    What have we found?
    The same old fears
    Wish you were here


    I also got some other songs

    Jeff Buckley - Lover, you should've come over
    Deep Purple - When a blind man cries
    Pixies - Where Is My Mind .... ok i dnu if it's depressing but it's good

    Love that Buckley`s and Pink Floyd songs
    But my favorite is Marillion - "A script for a jester`s tear" . It`s double depressive, I feel totally depressed when I think of Fish`s albums after Fugazi. :facepalm:

    "Runaway Train" by Soul Asylum. This came out during a very dark time in my life and has held a special place in my heart ever since.
