Since I love country music so much Travelin' Soldier by the Dixie Chicks is very depressing to me. It's about a girl who meets a soldier and he goes overseas and he asks her if she would write to him because he has nobody who will. She is waiting for him to come home and he dies. This song always makes me cry when I hear it! As for making me laugh...Garth Brooks Friends in Low Places is a riot!! Do you have songs that make you cry or laugh!

Yes I like country music as well and there are a few that make me cry, one would be Lonestar I am already there ( reminds me of my husband deploying ) and Keith Urbans Tonight I wanna cry.

One of the songs that makes me laugh is Grandma Got Runover by a Reindeer.And the song that makes me want to cry is I'll Be seeing you.Like Travelin' Soldier, it is a war song, but it is from WWII.

Oh yes, ctry, there are sad songs that bring tears to my eyes, and happy songs that I get areal hoot from. I always get misty-eyed when I hear the song Melissa Lies. I forget the artist's name, but it's about a little girl's new friend who is being abused. Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy by Big and Rich is what I consider a happy song. I really like the video. I also really like I've Been Watching You by Rodney Atkins. It's a great song with a great lesson.

Amazing Grace. I do not know what it is about this song but when it is played or sung, I cry. There is a song about soldiers that also affects me greatly. If it comes on when I am driving, I have to pull over and have a good cry.

Amazing Grace was always one of my Dad's favorite songs and I can't even listen to it any more without balling my eyes out!

Hi Crtymuziklvr, Just this year I really got into country music. And just about all of it makes me cry!! lol Travelin' Soldier is a really good song, it does get my throat tight. The one that does it for me each and every time is "Startin with Me" by Jake Owens. Its sad to say, but that song really touches me because Ive done some of the things in this song. Its really personal. Oh and that one song "I thought I was Tough"....I think thats the name of it. I really get choked up listening to that one! "Ticks" and "Good Directions" makes me smile & laugh. Bay xx

Ticks is one of the funniest I've heard in a long time plus Brad Paisley is one of my favorites. Of course I love I thought I was tough too!

There are a lot of country songs that make me cry. I like Alyssa Lies, and some others that I can't remember off the top of my head. Friends In Low Places is one that makes me laugh, as well. I haven't heard that song by the Dixie Chicks, but it definitely sounds like one that would make me cry.

If you listen to the Dixie Chicks at all you have to listen to this song. It's really something. Alyssa Lies is getting to be a popular song!

The song Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) by Green Day always chokes me up. So do a few songs from the band Brand New (I won't waste your time saying the names cause you've probably never even heard of Brand New). I've also had songs that make me laugh, but usually because of some side joke I have with friends.

I think we all have songs that are side jokes with family or friends. One I have with my kids is Lying Eyes from the Eagles. It has to do with their father my ex..lol...

a couple of songs that bring tears to my eyes are wind beneath my wings, (it has special meaning to me) and tears in heaven by eric clapton. I cant think of an exact song that makes me laugh at the moment, but the kids have been listening to some comic ones that make me laugh. best wishes
