    Default Need Help Now!

    I'm in a history class and we are talking about war and for my homework I have to find a song that has to do with war. I'm coming up blank and could really use some help and all help is appreciated. (Note: We can't bring in the "War! Huh! Yeah! What is it good for?! Absolutely Nothing!" song)

    Some of the mid to late 60's songs are "anti" war.
    Bob Dylan "Blowin' In The Wind, John Lennon-"Give Peace a Chance"
    Todays county music has a more "pro-war/patriotic" stance..
    Charlie Daniels "This it ain't no rag", Toby Keith "American Soldier" or "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American), Darryl Worley "POW 369"

    You can also check out the soundtrack to the musical HAIR. Again, mostly anti-war, but still classics.
