The saddest song in the world

A dying man sings the saddest song in the world.

Townes van Zandt, "Marie", live in 1993, shortly before the end.

BTW, this song isn't fiction, it is true every day. The cause of death on the death certificate is always "natural causes". As if starvation and dying due to exposure when supermarkets throw away tons of food every day and millions of houses stand empty is somehow "natural".
