“I Ain’t Marchin’ Anymore” by Phil Ochs is The Royal Peace Song of the Day for Monday, August 15th. You can find the lyrics in the Rise Up Singing songbook on page 159 in the Peace section. You can purchase a copy of Rise Up Singing, filled with lots of songs about peace and justice, at Powell’s Books: here.
An excerpt from the lyrics…“I marched to the battle of New Orleans / At the end of the early British War / A young land was a-growin’, the young blood started flowin’ / But, I ain’t marchin’ anymore…”
The Royal Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. We hope to create a stream of music, culture, and entertainment for folks who want to live in a state of peace and nonviolence.
