    Thank you for hosting, Robin, and your fascinating theme.

    So I was thinking... surely John Prine must have a song where someone dies...

    May have to Thornton Rule the heck out of this one. Do songs about death include songs about those who try to prevent death, however futile the attempt may be? Hope so, because here's one by Warren Zevon about Philip Habib. Title cut from "The Envoy."

    Not actually a death in the song, but I'll allow it because of the Thornton rule.

    J. Cash. 'Nuff said. (except for the issue of which octave to sing it, but ...)

    As promised (threatened?), for the second straight week, here's a song from Blitzen Trapper's "Destroyer of the Void" album. This is called "The Man Who Would Speak True".

    Well - it ain't "Tell Laura I Love Her", but I hope this qualifies - thanks for the Season Robin!

    This is the first track from the Violent Femmes' 1984 album Hallowed Ground. I saw on Wikipedia today that this band was listed under the genre "folk punk"... that's a new term for me anyways.

    I kinda think the Femmes' frontman was inspired by Dylan's Hollis Brown when writing it as they're quite similar. I kinda hope someone covers Hollis Brown this week. I did so back in week 127, and it's my favorite murder song.
