The Red River Valley

As a result of constantly seeing news updates on the flooding in Fargo, this song has been in my head for the past few days. It is in the same category for me as "Stewball", an old and pretty song which made me feel so very very sad when I was a little kid. Partly because of the words, but maybe because the simplicity and prettiness of the tune made the words so much sadder. I remember singing it in grade four or five and getting all snuffly at my desk. It still makes me sad. "They say you are taking the sunshine".
