    I'm not quite sure I understand the concept, but how about "Stan" by Eminem?

    I'm not familiar with "Another Like You", but "She Left Me For Jesus" is a great song, and I'm sure hardly anybody on here has heard it.

    Lots of good ones; I'll add more as they come to me, but here are a few I've not seen listed:

    "Uneasy Rider" by Charlie Daniels

    "Wabash Cannonball" by numerous artists, but Roy Acuff's version is probably best known.

    "Dancing In The Moonlight" by Thin Lizzy

    "Knoxville Girl" by numerous artists, probably best known by The Louvin Brothers.

    Speaking of Warren Zevon, Lawyers Guns and Money has a pretty good story although I like the Hank Jr. version better.
