Thread Name: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Uh-huh. And what about the entire rest of the song? And what is wrong with using an old trad song as the basis for starting off a whole new idea with new lyrics? People have been doing it ever since trad songs and traditional melodies existed. The only guy I ever hear criticized for doing it is Bob Dylan. He's well-known enough to make a good target.
