Sing Against the War 

John Mellencamp has an anti-war song, "To Washington," that you can download free. According to an article in the New York Times about the song, it is based on a Woody Guthrie tune that is based on a Carter Family song.

A verse:
And he wants to fight with many
And he says it's not for oil
He sent out the National Guard
To police the world
From Baghdad to Washington

With a similar message, the Beastie Boys recorded, "In a World Gone Mad", also free. Some of the lyrics: "How many people must get killed/For oil families' pockets to get filled?" The New York Times writes about this one, too.*********************Categories: Living, Advocating
