    Puff The Magic Dragon hit me like a ton of bricks when I first "heard it" in the context of a parent of children growing too fast.

    In 1964 Newsweek Magazine was on a jihad to find drug references in everything, so they did what MSM does, and manufactured a load.

    It is and always has been about loss of innocence.

    It's a good thing I didn't know about them in the 90's. Hope might have had a stalker.

    Back story: A mentor of mine lost his wife and two kids in an accident back in the 90’s. I met him much later, and this song played in the background at my shop and his eyes welled up with tears....this man’s pain and sadness I’ve yet to see equaled despite the years that have gone by. Can’t hear it without damn near tearing up myself.

    I was about 7 or 8; loved dinosaurs - constantly doing school reports on them and reading; was a lot like Calvin with a dinosaur imaginary friend. So hearing this was NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ... I'll always come back Puff. Maybe that's why I've refused to "grow up?"

    When I was a young man I carried my pack
    And I lived the free life of a rover
    From the murrays green basin to the dusty outback
    I waltzed my matilda all over
    Then in nineteen fifteen my country said son
    It's time to stop rambling 'cause there's work to be done
    So they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
    And they sent me away to the war
    And the band played Waltzing Matilda
    As we sailed away from the quay
    And amidst all the tears and the shouts and the cheers
    We sailed off to Gallipoli
    How well I remember that terrible day
    When the blood stained the sand and the water
    And how in that hell that they called suvla bay
    We were butchered like lambs at the slaughter
    Johnny Turk he was ready, he primed himself well
    He showered us with bullets, and he rained us with shells
    And in five minutes flat he'd blown us all to hell
    Nearly blew us right back to Australia
    And a band played waltzing Matilda
    As we stopped to bury our slain
    And we buried ours and the Turks buried theirs
    Then it started all over again
    Now those who were living did their best to survive
    In that mad world of blood, death and fire
    And for seven long weeks I kept myself alive
    While the corpses around me piled higher
    Then a big Turkish shell knocked me arse over tit
    And when I awoke in my hospital bed
    And saw what it had done, Christ I wished I was dead
    Never knew there were worse things than dying
    And no more I'll go waltzing Matilda
    To the green bushes so far and near
    For to hump tent and pegs, a man needs two legs
    No more waltzing Matilda for me
    So they collected the cripples, the wounded and maimed
    And they shipped us back home to Australia
    The legless, the armless, the blind and insane
    Those proud wounded heroes of suvla
    And as our ship pulled into circular quay
    I looked at the place where me legs used to be
    And thank Christ there was nobody waiting for me
    To grieve and to mourn and to pity
    And a band played Waltzing Matilda
    As they carried us down the gangway
    But nobody cheered, they just stood and stared
    And they turned all their faces away
    And now every April I sit on my porch
    And I watch the parade pass before me
    I see my old comrades, how proudly they march
    Reliving their dreams of past glory
    I see the old men, all twisted and torn
    The forgotten heroes of a forgotten war
    And the young people ask me, "what are they Marching for?"
    And I ask myself the same question
    And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
    And the old men still answer to the call
    But year after year their numbers get fewer
    Some day no one will march there at all
    Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
    Who'll go a-Waltzing Matilda with me?

    It’s a good thing I’m out in the backyard burning debris and having a beer by myself. If anybody was here they might think I have feelings. Just saying, sniff.

    Genre's.
    Classic folk song.
    Sad because of video, more than song, also country music.
    Sad modern rock/punk song.
    Sad modern folk song.


    And, no calling flags, when people post joyful songs?
    :p

    I'm fairly certain that Avett Bros song is about that 5yo kid that got shot by the black dude in NC. - Can't say for sure, but they're from Concord and his boy looks very similar.
