 "The Ballad of the Unknown Soldier" The song is called "The Ballad of the Unknown Soldier." Barbara Dane recorded it on Paredon's "What Now People?" Vol. 1. some time in the early seventies. She first got the song from Peggy Seeger who sent it to her in 1969. The author, Rod Shearman, is English. Shearman wrote it after seeing a brief item in the Manchester Guardian about an American GI, dressed in sandals and black pajamas, who was found dead behind "enemy" lines.

THE VIETNAM WAR SONG PAGE "Most all of the songs I have listed in this web site do not mention Vietnam by name. But the 9 years of US active combat in Vietnam changed this nation and I believe that none of the following ten songs would have been written without the extreme emotion that the war brought to this country. I feel that all of the songs are very interesting and a reflection of the time. In deciding which songs to list, the song had to qualify in two ways. I asked (1) Was it a Top 40 Billboard Song? and (2) Would it have existed if Vietnam had not occurred?."
