Thread Name: Songs about Vietnam War
Subject: RE: Songs about Vietnam War
Revisited this old but thought-provoking thread having seen it under "Mudcat Classic Threads" in the FAQ thread.

Just to bring it up the list again I'll chip in with one or two songs that always seem to get overlooked. There is one by Dory Previn that begins "On the veterans' big parade..." (sorry, don't know its title), one titled "My son John" or similar by Tom Paxton, which really should be in the DT, though I've not found it under various permutations, and a protest song by Buffy St Marie called "Moratorium."

"Jimmy Newman" which deservedly gets some mentions above is not by John Denver as someone claimed, but by Tom Paxton as someone else (earlier in the thread!) said.
