Subject: RE: Lyr Req: A modern folk song of your choice
Take a look at some of Ralph McTell's songs!
For example:
Bentley & Craig
(written before Derek was pardoned - he now sings a different final verse in live shows).

Others might include "Lost boys" (hooliganism, sort of), Song for Martin" (drugs), "Claudia" (racism), "Red sky at night" (the Foot & Mouth outbreak, and it's effect on farmers), "the islands" (pollution)...many, many more.
