Subject: RE: Vietnam era protest songs
Lyndon Johnston told the Nation, have no fear of escalation
- I am trying everyone to please
And though it's just another war, we're send ing 20,000 more
-To help save Vietnam from Vietnamese.
Sounds painfully like Iraq !!!
There's an Aussie one Martin Whyndam-Read used to sing in the 60's "William White " about a school teacher who wouldn't be conscripted - it's a beaut.
Apologies - I can't attribute the songwriters names
