Now that has to be the number 1 saddest song of all time!

Yep pretty sad. Man starts a family and plants a tree. Mom dies and the tree grows.
OK Timothy is possibly one of the weirdest, darkest (except for maybe DOA by bloodrock) songs ever on radio. I still rave about its insane lyrics to this day.
I defy anyone to show me a song about EATING YOUR FRIENDS that has made it into the top 40 since.
Hungry as hell no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
And then there's some for you."
Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?
I must have blacked out just around then
'Cause the very next thing that I could see
Was the light of the day again
My stomach was full as it could be
And nobody ever got around
To finding Timothy
