Hey there, Wanderson...

If "Somebody's Darling" and "The Vacant Chair" don't bring tears to a listener's eyes, they're simply not human. A couple of real maudlin, heart-rending tunes. I see in your post a verse that I've not heard before.

Tennessee Ernie Ford's "The Vacant Chair," sung in his way-low tenor, is just 100% anguish.

One tune seems to be about an "unknown" and the other is about "noble Willie," IIRC based on a real soldier.
