GUEST,folkie Looking for songs against racism (50) RE: Looking for songs against racism 02 Dec 06

Slightly off-topic, but in the long run, not... Si Kahn's song, "The Curtains of Old joe's House" is a great song about intolerance.   Don't have the whole song to post, but the chorus comes to mind:

They say than in his younger days
He had loved another man
But when the small town started talking
His friend died by his own hand

There were whispers among the women
Hard talk among the men
And the curtains of Old Joe's house
Were never pulled again
