WAR SONG

TUNING: EADGBE

SUBMITTED BY: David L'Heureux NOTES: Recorded by Neil Young and Graham Nash with the Stray Gators "May 1972: Neil Young writes "War Song" as a gesture of support for the anti-Vietnam War campaign of Presidential candidate George McGovern, and records it on his ranch with Graham Nash (who receives co-billing on the subsequent single), Kenny Buttrey, Tim Drummond and Ben Keith. The single is released to coincide with the Democratic Party's California primary, with proceeds going to help meet McGovern's expenses. This single flopped, and so, at the end of the year, did George." from the book: Neil Young -- The Visual Documentary by John Robertson, copyright 1994 Omnibus Press CHORDS:
