Thread Name: Lyr Req: George W Told the Nation (Tom Paxton)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Tom Paxton 'W Told The Nation'
It seems to me that, given the protests this past weekend, that we are, sadly, once again re-living the VietNam era with a much more corrupt crew in every area. Think--=-political witchunts, ignoring veteran needs scandals, constitutional shortcuts, etc;

While there may well be newer artists that are addressing the issues ---Karma Farmers, Janet Bates come to mind I still think that Ochs and Paxton are speaking more directly to us.   Paxton has updated material and---again--sadly---Ochs material does not need updating.

I wonder how many people, who I heard on the news chanting "Peace Will Come" know who wrote it, and from what era it was. Probably many of a certain generation.
