GUEST,Taliesn Lyr Req/Add: We Didn't Know (Tom Paxton)^^^ (19) RE: Lyr Req: Tom Paxton Lyrics? 15 Oct 02

Only Tom Paxton lyrics I still remember are from his clever talking blues piece, "the Viet Nam Pot Luck Blues", which ends

" So his squad and my squad settled down

and passed som e lovely stuff around.

All too soon it was time to go,

and the Captain got on the radio

and said " Hello Heeead-quarters,

we have met the enemy....

and he has been *smashed*

All about meeting up with a Vietnamese cadre offering
their own special stash ...
"straight from Oncle Ho's victory garden.
We call it Han-noi Gold".

Still brings atremor of an inner chuckle the way Loudon Wainwright III still can.
Cleverr man that Tom Paxton
