Gotta agree with you about John Prine.<quoted text> Sam Stone by John Prine. Love John Prine
His "Hello in There" is among my favorites.
'Sam Stone' is as good an antiwar song as has ever been penned.
"But life had lost its fun
And there was nothing to be done
But trade his house that he bought on the G. I. Bill
For a flag draped casket on a local heroes' hill."
Speaks volumes of the insanity of war.
