Subject: RE: Help: POST WWII Songs-Vet's Day Program
I was in Vietnam in 1968. We had a jukebox in our bunker (no idea where it came from) with only 5 songs on it. They were "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash, "Fool on the Hill" by Brazil 66, "light my Fire" by somebody other than the Doors, "WE Gotta Get Outa This Place" by ? and "My Girl" by ?

Under the influence of strong drink we'd sing the "Fixin' to Die Rag" (Written by Country Joe MacDonald.)

I don't ever want to hear those songs again, but some of the other Vvets might like to.
