Favorite anti-war songs (mainly from the Vietnam war era)

Mods-please don't move this to B&C, I'm looking for more of a political angle with this thread.

Anyway, I'm making a CD of my favorite anti-war songs, particulary those that came out of the influence of the Vietnam War.

I'm thinking along the lines of:
"I'd Love to Change the World"-Ten Years After
"Fortunate Son"-CCR
"Volunteers"-Jefferson Airplane
"For What it's Worth"-Buffalo Springfield
"Eve of Destruction"-can't remember the name of the artist
"Let's Get Together"-The Youngbloods

also (not from the Vietnam era) I'm thinking about
"Imagine"-John Lennon
"Invisible Sun"-The Police
plus Please, Bullet the Blue Sky, Peace on Earth, Love and Peace or Else, Sunday Bloody Sunday
"Deja Vu All Over Again"-John Fogerty

I think y'all can kind of get the track I'm on so any additions would be great, as I said I would particularly like ones from the Vietnam era.

War

Bob Marley and the Wailers

Until the philosophy which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights are equally
Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be pursued, but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war

And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
South Africa sub-human bondage
Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
Well, everywehre is war, me say war

War in the east, war in the west
War up north, war down south
War, war, rumours of war

And until that day, the African continent
Will not know peace, we Africans will fight

We find it necessary and we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

Blowin' in the Wind -- Bob Dylan

Not so specific about Vietnam, more of a general anti injustice song.

Alice's Restaurant -- Arlo Guthrie (very long and funny as hell, but one of my all time faves )

and "What's Going On?" -- Marvin Gaye (damned great song!)

Where have all the flowers gone - Marlene Dittrich.

I prefer the German version, but it's a great song anyways.
