Since this is about sad songs of the 1970s, a decade that probably had more sad songs than any other, how about
this one:

He spoke with tears of fifteen years
How his dog and him traveled about
The dog up and died, up and died  ???
After twenty years, he still grieves

Another great sad 70's song...it reminds me of 2010, though I didn't get married...It reminds me of the empty promises that I got this year, especially on Labor Day!

Henry Gross - Shannon {1976}

Note: Shannon is a song written about the death of Beach Boy Carl Wilson's Irish Setter of the same name.

SHANNON
WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS
@1976 BLENDINGWELL, ASCAP 

ANOTHER DAY IS AT END
MAMA SAYS SHE'S TIRED AGAIN
NO ONE CAN EVEN BEGIN TO TELL HER

I HARDLY KNOW WHAT TO SAY
BUT MAYBE IT'S BETTER THAT WAY
IF PAPA WERE HERE I'M SURE HE'D TELL HER 

SHANNON IS GONE I HOPE SHE'S DRIFTING OUT TO SEA
SHE ALWAYS LOVED TO SWIM AWAY
MAYBE SHE'LL FIND AN ISLAND WITH A SHADY TREE
JUST LIKE THE ONE IN OUR BACKYARD 

MAMA TRIES HARD TO PRETEND THINGS WILL GET
BETTER AGAIN
SOMEHOW SHE'S KEEPING IT ALL INSIDE HER 

BUT FINALLY THE TEARS FILL OUR EYES
AND I KNOW THAT SOMEWHERE TONIGHT
SHE KNOWS HOW MUCH WE REALLY MISS HER 

SHANNON IS GONE I HOPE SHE'S DRIFTING OUT TO SEA
SHE ALWAYS LOVED TO SWIM AWAY
MAYBE SHE'LL FIND AN ISLAND WITH A SHADY TREE
JUST LIKE THE ONE IN OUR BACKYARD 

JUST LIKE THE ONE IN OUR BACKYARD

It's funny, I was driving to work this morning when this song came on the satellite radio:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYHnBYZwP94&feature=related

I'd never heard it before but once I heard the chorus I immediately thought of you. Maybe you've heard this song before, maybe you haven't, and I don't know if it's exactly a sad song but I hope you like it.  ;)

I heard that (I think) on an Indie Radio Station!

Well...Euclid Beach was a popular Beach at its heyday, but got pwned by the competitors in 1969 so it closed.

And yeah...you can only surf on the West and East Coast!

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned this yet - Love Hurts by Nazareth

I always thought that was the quintessential sad song from the decade, though the lyrics are pretty mediocre. The music always evoked sadness though.

Someone already mentioned this, but Ten Years Gone by Led Zep as well.

I always thought it was more sadder that a half-decent band had to resort to rubbish like this!

Dan McCaffrerty's voice on this is the aural equivalent of nails down a blackboard... :P
