Death of an Unpoplar Poet
Captain and the Kid
Spider John
West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown
Just to name a few.
Have to add-
He went to Paris and No body speaks to the captain no more
Both great but sad songs.

I have to agree that Steamer is NOT a sad song, it is most certainly romantic though! I love that song.

I think the saddest songs are Remittance Man and The Captain and the Kid.

Definitely "Nobody Speaks to the Captain No More", a sad but gorgeous song.

Nobody speaks to the caption is excellent as is California Promises (both favorites), but Sending the old man Home is classic Buffett too!
