Thank you for your suggestions. As there are many songs against war I want to focus in this collection on songs that mention the war in Vietnam explicitly. I will check out the suggested lyrics.

Each mind, each heart carries a sword, and an olive branch. Both are qualities of man. To understand men, history, and oneself both are essential to know, for others to know. Then this endeavor will offer true insight, rather than polarizing views. By default the antiwar songs prevail. They are the majority of those written then.
