  1. Great question. If at least one of these doesn’t make you cry you should have your tear ducts checked.
    Snowbird . . . Anne Murray
    Sixteen Blue . . . The Replacements
    Who Knows Where the Time Goes . . . Sandy Dennis with Fairport Convention
    Hello in There . . . John Prine
    My Old Man . . . Steve Goodman
