Thread Name: Vietnam era protest songs
Subject: RE: Vietnam era protest songs
There're two Tom Paxton Songs that stick in my mind

"Talking Vietnam Pot Luck Blues" - Brilliant talking blues about a rookie on his first patrol in 'nam and discovering that 'the weed' grows in abundance

And...

The Superb "Jimmy Newman" - Guy waiting to be medi-vacced out of the M.A.S.H and telling the guy in the next bed to wake up coz they're going home. - Still makes me weep!
