Thread Name: Draft Dodging Songs?
Subject: RE: Draft Dodging Songs?
Some years ago, I reformulated the Dodger song with elements of Hoyt Axton's "Greenback Dollar", especially the tune. Here is the verse that pertains to this thread.

The general is a dodger,
Yes, and I'm a doger too.
He'll march you up and he'll march you down
And he'll put you under ground, poor boy,
He'll put you underground.

And I don't give a damn about Selective Service
Dodge the draft if I can.
Just a wailing song and a 4-F card
Are the only things I understand.
