Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Will the Circle Be Unbroken"
The Lyrics:
Oh, I followed close behind her
Tryin' to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in her grave
Why:
It is an upbeat song about the death and burial of the singer's mother.
Submitted by: David
"Mr. Bojangles"
The Lyrics:
He danced for throws at minstrel shows and county fairs
Through out the south
He spoke with tears of fifteen years how his dog and him
Had traveled about
His dog up and died, he up and died
After twenty years he still grieves.
Why:
The NGDB version was rather upbeat, while Sammy Davis, Jr.'s rendition retained some poignancy.
