In light of current events, this seems timely.

I Dreamed I Saw Phil Ochs Last Night
   by Billy Bragg

I dreamed I saw Phil Ochs last night
Alive as you and me
Says I to Phil, "You're ten years deadâ€쳌
"I never died", says he
"I never died", says he

The music business killed you Phil
I ignored the things you said
And cast you out when fashions changed
Says Phil, "But I ain't dead"
Says Phil, "But I ain't dead"

The FBI harassed you Phil
They smeared you with their lies
Says he, "But they could never kill
What they could not compromise
I never compromised"

"Though fashion's changed and critics sneered
The songs that I have sung
Are just as true tonight as then
The struggle carries on
The struggle carries on"

When the song of freedom rings out loud
From valleys and from hills
Where people stand up for their rights
Phil Ochs is with us still
Phil Ochs inspires us still
