The Ballad of Bill Brakefield

[1971]
Testo trovato su Mudcat Café



Si veda anche al proposito la canzone Fort Dix Stockade di Bob Lusk, anche lui detenuto a Fort Dix ma prima della rivolta.

Il diciannovenne Bill Brakefield disertò nel 1968 ma, invece di provare a scappare in Canada, decise di rendere pubblica la sua decisione. Per qualche giorno riuscì ad evitare l’arresto rifugiandosi nel City College di New York, ma il 7 novembre la polizia fece irruzione, prese Bill e i commilitoni che avevano condiviso la sua lotta e li consegnò alle autorità militari.

All’epoca le corti marziali lavoravano senza sosta: nel 1969 furono celebrati quasi 80.000 processi per diserzione, con il 94% di condanne! E nelle prigioni militari i soldati pacifisti o, comunque, non disposti ad andare a farsi ammazzare o ad uccidere in Vietnam non se la passavano bene…
Quella che segue è una testimonianza dello stesso soldato Brakefield:

Come tutte le grandi canzoni, anche "The Green Fields of France" ha avuto ed ha le sue parodie. Ne presentiamo qui una in cui il soldato semplice Willie McBride da una risposta inequivocabile a Eric Bogle.

Duct Tape!

[2003]
Testo di Stephen L.Suffet
Sull'aria di "Slip Knot" di Woody Guthrie

Lyrics and Music by Stephen L.Suffet
To the tune of "Slip Knot" by Woody Guthrie

From: http://polsong.gcal.ac.uk/songs/suffet.html

"The new words were written in 2003 after the U.S. government officials advised people to stock up on duct tape as the war in Iraq seemed imminent. They were to use the tape to seal windows and doors in the event of a chemical or biological attack. The parody is based on Woody Guthrie'a song Slip Knot, written in the 1940s on the subject of lynching."
