Subject: RE: Lyr Add: We dinnae want Polaris
It seems to me I saw this song in a collection of anti-war songs...called Songs for Peace?....back in the 60s. I have a vague recollection that it was an Oak Publication, but that would be a pretty good guess anyway. I imagine you'd know, Jim--and if you don't, you should find out! (I just got a substantial sum from a textbook publisher who used the words to one of my songs a few years ago in a reading program; they hadn't been able to find me at the time, but someone else who recorded the song mentioned it to me.)
As soon as I saw the thread title, the first verse (chorus?) immediately came into my mind, but nothing else. What a perfectly Mudcat moment, not only to have all the words posted by Wolfgang, but also to have the author respond!
