Thread Name: Chord Req: Anti protest songs
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Anti protest songs
I think that Phil Ochs meant that marching to war in any era was wrong, and I agree with him. I see this as an "anti-protest" song because it is so direct. No matter how much you protest war, it comes down to the soldiers. If they don't "march" we don't have war. But God Bless those men and women who do march off to war - I have lost too many of my former students to think that war will solve what is ailing our world.
