Words and Melody: Phil Ochs and Bob Gibson 1964
Arranged: Tom Bridges, 1999
A 1960’s anti-war song in the form of a marching song. Ironic. This was one of the songs on Phil Ochs’ first official album in 1964, titled “All the News That’s Fit to Sing” which lead to Phil Ochs being characterised as a singing journalist. Even though the anti-war sentiment was all over the news when the album was released, the song is applicable to wars generally, and to the wars of today.
