  5. We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee;We don't take no trips on LSDWe don't burn no draft cards down on Main Street;We like livin' right, and bein' free.I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,A place where even squares can have a ballWe still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of allWe don't make a party out of lovin';We like holdin' hands and pitchin' woo;We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy,Like the hippies out in San Francisco do. And I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,A place where even squares can have a ball.We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all.Leather boots are still in style for manly footwear;Beads and Roman sandals won't be seen.Football's still the roughest thing on campus,And the kids here still respect the college dean.We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,In Muskogee, Oklahoma, USA. “Okie from Muskogee” by Merle Haggard

  14. Come you masters of warYou that build the big gunsYou that build the death planesYou that build all the bombsYou that hide behind wallsYou that hide behind desksI just want you to knowI can see through your masks.You that never done nothin'But build to destroyYou play with my worldLike it's your little toyYou put a gun in my handAnd you hide from my eyesAnd you turn and run fartherWhen the fast bullets fly.Like Judas of oldYou lie and deceiveA world war can be wonYou want me to believeBut I see through your eyesAnd I see through your brainLike I see through the waterThat runs down my drain.You fasten all the triggersFor the others to fireThen you set back and watchWhen the death count gets higherYou hide in your mansion'As young people's bloodFlows out of their bodiesAnd is buried in the mud. Let me ask you one questionIs your money that goodWill it buy you forgivenessDo you think that it couldI think you will findWhen your death takes its tollAll the money you madeWill never buy back your soul. How much do I knowTo talk out of turnYou might say that I'm youngYou might say I'm unlearnedBut there's one thing I knowThough I'm younger than youThat even Jesus would neverForgive what you do. You've thrown the worst fearThat can ever be hurledFear to bring childrenInto the worldFor threatening my babyUnborn and unnamedYou ain't worth the bloodThat runs in your veins.And I hope that you dieAnd your death'll come soonI will follow your casketIn the pale afternoonAnd I'll watch while you're loweredDown to your deathbedAnd I'll stand over your grave'Til I'm sure that you're dead. Master of War Sung by Eddie Vedder Sung by Eddie Vedder

  15. Oh my name it is nothin'My age it means lessThe country I come fromIs called the MidwestI's taught and brought up thereThe laws to abideAnd the land that I live inHas God on its side.Oh the history books tell itThey tell it so wellThe cavalries chargedThe Indians fellThe cavalries chargedThe Indians diedOh the country was youngWith God on its side.The Spanish-AmericanWar had its dayAnd the Civil War tooWas soon laid awayAnd the names of the heroesI's made to memorizeWith guns on their handsAnd God on their side. With God on my side. But now we got weaponsOf the chemical dustIf fire them we're forced toThen fire them we mustOne push of the buttonAnd a shot the world wideAnd you never ask questionsWhen God's on your side.In a many dark hourI've been thinkin' about thisThat Jesus ChristWas betrayed by a kissBut I can't think for youYou'll have to decideWhether Judas IscariotHad God on his side.So now as I'm leavin'I'm weary as HellThe confusion I'm feelin'Ain't no tongue can tellThe words fill my headAnd fall to the floorIf God's on our sideHe'll stop the next war. “With God on Our Side” by Bob Dylan The First World War, boysIt came and it wentThe reason for fightingI never did getBut I learned to accept itAccept it with prideFor you don't count the deadWhen God's on your side.When the Second World WarCame to an endWe forgave the GermansAnd then we were friendsThough they murdered six millionIn the ovens they friedThe Germans now tooHave God on their side.I've learned to hate RussiansAll through my whole lifeIf another war comesIt's them we must fightTo hate them and fear themTo run and to hideAnd accept it all bravely

  22. Peter, Paul and Mary • Peter Yarrow, Noel (Paul) Stookey and Mary Travers began to perform in 1961. • Their number one song was “Puff, The Magic Dragon.” It is not about drugs, but based on a poem by Leonard Lipton .

  23. Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff,And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. Oh Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee. Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sailJackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail,Noble kings and princes would bow whene'er they came,Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name. Oh! Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee. A dragon lives forever but not so little boysPainted wings and giants' rings make way for other toys.One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no moreAnd Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar. His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave,So Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave. Oh! Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,Puff, the magic dragon lived by the seaAnd frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee. “Puff, The Magic Dragon”

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no, It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no, “Fortunate Son” sung by Creedence Clearwater Revival
