Report What is the most depressed/depressing song? in Questions and Answers Posted July 9, 2008 Laurie_ 11-21-05 08:35 PM - Post#172464 thought that "Can't You See" is depresing. Lyrically, it's a blues type construction. The singer is sad, but he's moving on. "Gonna catch a frieght train...Till that train runs out of track" Get away from it all. Start a new life. He's not suicidal, or any such. He's coping. BTW, a few years after the Marshall Tucker Band had their hit, Waylon Jennings took his recording to success on the country charts. A good song has legs, and this one does.
