Here's a tearjerker for ya-- Ebony Eyes, by the Everly Brothers.

I remember my mom playing the 45 when I was 3! At the time, the image of a plane crashing scared the bejebus outta me.

Here are the "heaven" lyrics~

Then I felt a burning break deep inside And I knew the heavenly ebony skies Had taken my life's most wonderful prize My beautiful ebony eyes

If I ever get to heaven I'll bet The first angel I'll recognize She'll smile at me and I know she will be My beautiful ebony eyes

This one even has a corny spoken midsection. Can't believe William Shatner has never covered it--it would be right up his alley! ;-)

Saint of Me - Rolling Stones

And could you stand the torture And could you stand the pain Could you put your faith in Jesus When you're burning in the flames

And I do believe in miracles And I want to save my soul And I know that I'm a sinner I'm gonna die here in the cold I said yes, I said yeah

I said yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah You'll never make a saint of me Oh yeah, oh yeah You'll never make a saint of me

Robert Earl Keen - Goin' Down in Style.

Yeah when you cross the border you ain't ever coming back And there ain't no redemption when the cops are on your tail The closest thing to heaven, is the great big Cadillac The city lights of Houston, or the fiery gates of hell They nabbed me on the hill that overlooks the Rio Grande

Another John Prine tune - Jesus, The Missing Years.

The years went by like sweet little days With babies crying pork chops and beaujolais When he woke up he was seventeen The world was angry. The world was mean. Why the man down the street and the kid on the stoop All agreed that life stank. All the world smelled like poop Baby poop that is ..the worst kind So he grew his hair long and threw away his comb And headed back to Jerusalem to find Mom, Dad and home But when he got there the cupboard was bare Except for an old black man with a fishing rod He said "Whatcha gonna be when you grow up?" Jesus said "God" Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into? I'm a human corkscrew and all my wine is blood They're gonna kill me Mama. They don't like me Bud. So Jesus went to Heaven and he went there awful quick All them people killed him and he wasn't even sick So come and gather around me my contemporary peers And I'll tell you all the story of Jesus...The Missing Years

He Was In Heaven Before He Died by John Prine

And I smiled on the Wabash The last time I passed it Yes I gave her a wink From the passenger side And my foot fell asleep As I swallowed my candy Knowing he was in heaven Before he died

Devil Went Down to Georgia by the Charlie Daniels Band.

Johnny you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard. 'Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards. And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold. But if you lose, the devil gets your soul.

Let me be the first to stretch the boundaries with a song that mentions the occupants of heaven and hell.

Charlie Pride, "Kiss An Angel Good Morning"

Whenever I chance to meet some old friends on the street They wonder how does a man get to be this way I've always got a smiling face Anytime and any place And everytime they ask me why I just smile and say

You've got to Kiss an angel good morning and let you know you think about her when you're gone Kiss an angel good morning and love her like the devil when you get back home

Well people may try to guess The secret of a happiness but some of them never learn it's a simple thing

The secret i'm speaking of Is a woman and a man in love and the answer is in this song that i always sing

You've got to Kiss an angel good morning and let you know you think about her when you're gone Kiss an angel good morning and love her like the devil when you get back home

Kiss an angel good morning and let you know you think about her when you're gone Kiss an angel good morning and love her like the devil when you get back home

Yo, Roe

'Bat Out of Hell' comes to mind.

I think animal rights activists were after Meatloaf about biting the head off the bat too. Lol. Of course he now has rabies.
