You and I are on the same page my friend.
How about the J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers' version from the 60s?

Oh, definitely; overexposure and inappropriate context can really kill a great song. That's one reason why I don't listen to the radio/watch TV, etc.

It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)-Bob Dylan
The last three lines are genius. It's not really sad in a conventional sense, but I find it deeply affecting.
And if my thought dreams could be seen/they'd probably put my head in a guillotine/but it's alright ma/it's life and life only.

The name she gave was Caroline
The daughter of a miner
And her ways were free
And it seemed to me
That the sunshine walked beside her

She come from Spencer, across the hill
She said her pa had sent her
Cause the coal was low
And soon the snow
Would turn the skies to winter.

She said she'd come to look for work
She was not seekin' favors
For a dime a day
And a place to stay
She turn those hands to labor

Well times were hard and, lord, jobs were few
All through Tecumseh Valley
But she asked around
And a job she found
Tending bar at Gypsy Sally's

Well she saved enough to get back home
When spring replaced the winter
But her dreams were denied
Her pa had died
The word came down from Spencer.

Well she took to whorin' out in the streets
With all the lust inside her
And it was many a man
Who returned again
To lay himself beside her.

They found her down beneath the stairs
That led to Gypsy Sally's
And in her hand when she died
Was a note that cried
Fare-thee-well, Tecumseh Valley

The name she gave was Caroline
The daughter of a miner
And her ways were free
And it seemed to me
That the sunshine walked beside her



"Tecumseh Valley," Townes Van Zandt.
