Break Up Songs

Tom over at 20 Prospect was listing his favorite break up songs. Frankly, his list tends toward little high school romance songs. This old Willie isn't. Willie can break up with the best of them.
Your voice is still it speaks no more
You'll never hurt me anymore
Death is a friend to love and I
Cause now you'll never say goodbye

I just heard from a friend who has taught ESL to Chinese immigrants that Willie Nelson songs work beautifully as instructional material. His lyrics are so carefully enunciated that the Chinese speakers can figure them out.

Compared to Van Morrison who's lyrics have become more and more unintelligible as he gets older.
