    One of the first Vietnam anti war songs. The song is of a woman singing about her lover who was most likely conscripted (sent)to Vietnam? Longing for his return.
    The average age of those sent to Vietnam was 19!
    So called white middle class Americans protested that their sons were being sent to Vietnam to die. The military began to recruit Afro Caribbean Americans. Capitalisms racism doesn’t get in the way with its wars.

    Damn, seems it was recorded by Dionne Warwick. However , it still best known sung by Aretha Franklin?

    Given that young American black men are more likely to be killed by other young American black men, by sending them out to fight it’s wars American capitalism is doing them a favour by putting them out of harms way.

    A case of jumping out of the frying pan..

    Afro Caribbean Americans were being lynched by white supremacies at the time.

    We oppose Capitalism and ALL of capitalisms wars.
    Workers have no interests in their masters quarrels.

    If I don’t post this beautiful song, I’m certain someone else would. It’s been used in a few films; most notably “Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice” (starring Robert Culp, my luuuv <3, Elliott Gould, and Dyan Cannon).

    Burt was also responsible for the invention of the card game played in casinos.
