Makes me think about my two sons every time I hear it.

Of the 70s ones, "Run Joey Run" by David Geddes."Billy, Don't Be a Hero" by Paper Lace were definitely depression fests. As far as true tear jerkers though, I'd go with "Honey" (mentioned above), "Blind Man in the Bleachers" by Kenny Starr and "Wildfire" by Michael Martin Murphey (probably the saddest of the bunch).
But even those don't hold a candle to two modern songs...
The first one...
Steven Curtis Chapman had a three year old adopted Asian daughter who was killed one day when his teenage son backed out of their driveway and didn't see her behind his truck. So now their daughter is gone and their son will have to live the rest of his life with the knowledge that he killed her. Hard to get much more tragic than that.
This song is dedicated to her memory. I've heard it, but honestly can't bring myself to listen to it again.
Sad as that song is though, I think the more guaranteed tear jerker is this one...
Don't care if you're the machoest of macho men. Good luck getting through that one. I can't make it through a single chorus. It's just too sad.
Mark Schultz also has a song called "Walking Her Home" that's sad in a more bittersweet kind of way. Likewise, Chapman has a song called "Cinderella" that's pretty much guaranteed to make any guy who has a daughter go misty-eyed.
Yeesh. I'm gonna go watch a comedy now

That old blues time period was some of the saddest, terrifying music ever made.
