If you're old enough to remember Kent State as a news headline rather than a historical event, Ohio is chilling. This live acoustic version from Massey Hall does the job nicely. A nice remembrance of a tragedy from a futile war. How many body bags and broken soldiers does it take?

As most people from my generation remember where they were when the tragic deaths of JOE and Martin. I remember vividly where I was as these warriors for the cause were butchered. Brave young people gone too soon!

Where are the poets and songwriters today?
The words and messages were so crystal clear but where are they now ?
Nothing had changed in our world except awareness and apathy .

This song , Ohio , Is the best. It so simply , only 3 or 4 chords and 2 stanzas of lyrics but in that it says so much. It one my favorite protest songs , along with "ball of confusion " and. "If I had a hammer" . I like this acoustic version best , it seem more passionate then the electronic version.
Great song ,

A sad anthem from my youth. This acoustic version seems more impassioned than the original recorded one. This one brings me to the brink of tears.

My son is at UC Davis, and it is so shocking that they had to endure similar police abuse to what our generation suffered in 1970. Thank the stars those idiots didn't fire guns this time..

this song's meaning,that people in the 60's should have put a stop to all the abuse young people were getting about protesting the war in Vietnam...my father's generation just did n't understand.. . I t was a unjust war we could never win...so the young generation of the time did not want us in this war NIXON & His army killed 4 students FOR WHAT!PEACE TODAY PEOPLE OR IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN!!!HOWI E

Regarding the lyric "soldiers are cutting us down, should have been done long ago"... For some reason I thought the "should have been done long ago" was referring to a quote in the news from some right wing a-hole who basically said we should have shut these kids down long ago. Did I dream that or does that line refer to Neil saying we should have been protesting long ago? Thoughts?... .

Great song!! I agree with you Robin. I still remember that day at Kent State. Neil sums it up, so many young people lost their lives for WHAT?
At least this song will always be there to mark this time in history. Too bad the Government doesn't practice PEACE.

Amen, Robin. Light a candle.
