"Ain't It Sad To Stand And Watch Love Die?" is the soporific ballad from Conway Twitty's 1968 album Next In Line

There's nothing obscure about the message in this song; the protagonist in "Ain't It Sad" is longing for a relationship with his wife who has been unfaithful, and his only reprisal is murdering her and the neighbor who she apparently was unfaithful with.

"And I vowed, she's never gonna hurtin' me again
And in a bitter anger, I shoot them where they lied..."

The ballad doesn't end here though- it gets darker. Our narrator then decides to take his own life:

"So I placed a gun up to my head and this was my reply
Neighbor ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?"

This protagonist may not have had the strongest conviction, but Conway carries the tune with his usual assured twang and hint of anguish.

Listen to this Conway deep cut below.

Ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?
Ain't it sad to stand & watch love die
Unfaithful wife, I took her life and the quicklin' of the knife
And ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?
I found her in the arms of my best friend
And I vowed, she's never gonna hurtin' me again
And in a bitter anger, I shoot them where they lied
And the last words she spoke, "God forgive me", then she died
And ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?
The neighbors gathered round so they could see
"Oh my God, what have you done?" they started asking me
So I placed a gun up to my head and this was my reply
Neighbor ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?
Ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?
Neighbor ain't it sad to stand & watch love die?
