Classic story songs

What am I forgetting? Add one!
  1. Stay - Jackson Browne (extended version)
    About a band and its roadies. Sweet!
  2. Hotel California - The Eagles
    It's kind of a horror story! Like The Shining!
  3. The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band
    About the ultimate bet - with fiddles
  4. Coward of the County - Kenny Rogers
    Revenge is sweet
  5. Ode to Billie Jo - Bobbie Gentry
    A confusing song about Billie Joe jumping off a bridge
  6. The Gambler - Kenny Rogers
    Spoiler: he dies at the end. It's subtle. Arguably not a story but there is talking and it's on a train so I'm counting it.
  7. Alice's Restaurant - Arlo Guthrie
    This is super duper long with tons of talking and might be the ultimate story song
  8. Copacabana - Barry Manilow
    Tragic!
  9. The Night That the Lights Went Out in Georgia - Reba McEntire
    Even more tragic!
  10. Midnight Train to Georgia - Gladys Knight
    Suspenseful- will she go or won't she?
  11. "Don't You Want Me" by The Human League
