Thread Name: Help: Missing Dylan song about John Henry Faulk
Subject: RE: Help: Missing Dylan song on John Henry Faulk
Yep. Phil Ochs. Definitely not a Dylan song. No one tried to follow in Dylan's protest footsteps more fervently than Phil Ochs, trouble was he sort of got stuck in them...

Dylan once waspishly remarked "You're not a folksinger, Ochs, you're a journalist!" He (Dylan) was being nasty, but he had a point at the same time.

Ochs, for his part, never stopped lauding Dylan's creativity, even when they weren't speaking to one another, which certainly speaks well for Phil's basic fairness and sense of integrity.
