Old Grunt:

"Peace" printed the "Sam Stone" lyrics in post #17 to this thread (23 Nov '04).

Artbrooks:

Yeah, man, we would often sing "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" and "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" as we walked through the jungle and rice paddies - the whole 100+ man Infantry company would be singing real low and quiet-like.

There was some anti-war, anti-military stuff in "Alice's Restaurant" as they were sittin' there on Bench W going through all that draftee stuff while playing with the pencils.
