Songs that tear you apart

Thread starter #1
What songs just tear your insides apart?
For me the #1 is Alan Jackson's 'I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You'. If you can listen to that song without a tear in your eye you got a hard heart.
Then, in no particular order, are songs like Moe Bandy's 'When I'm Too Old To Die Young'; 'Daddy's Hands', 'Bless the Beast And The Children', 'Go Rest High On That Mountain', Sarah McLachlan's 'Angel'. (bet a lot of folks don't even remember most of those).
Let's hear em folks...which ones are just hard for you to listen to.

Hero in Harlan ( Tom T Hall)
This ain't nothing (Craig Morgan)
A Jewel here on Earth (Louvin Brothers)

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly
I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain
Yeah, when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here
I'm gonna walk with my grandaddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
And then I'll hug his neck
Yeah, when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here
So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do
But when I get where I'm going
And I see my Maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of His amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Oh when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
Hallelujah
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah, when I get where I'm going
 
Yep, on Scottish bagpipes or Cherokee flutes.
Anything played on bagpipes by someone who knows how to play them raises the hair up on the back of my neck and makes me want to go chop somebody up with a big two-handed claymore.
