Proud Souls is the ultimate “sittin’ alone and feelin’ sorry for yourself” song. If you want a more polished version, you can listen to the original Jason Boland version here, and Cross Canadian Ragweed has a version here.

Finger on the Trigger is another kind of downer of a song, written by Brandon Jenkins and recorded by him and Bleu Edmondson. Whereas Proud Souls is rather general – and applicable to whatever reason you find yourself feeling glum – Finger on the Trigger has more of a narrative. (Sadly, no YouTube for a studio version from Jenkins. Link goes to a performance.
