Sandy Paton Tune Req: That Crazy War (13) RE: Tune Req: 'That Crazy War' 30 Jul 06

I collected a version titled "That Bloody War" sung by an 82-year-old East Tennessee mountain man, logger, and farmer named Abe Trivett. He was a bit worried about singing it back in 1961, for fear US authorities might come down on him for being unpatriotic. It's on our second vinyl album - FSA-2 (not yet offered on CD).
    Michael Cooney also recorded "That Crazy War" on his Folk-Legacy CD-35, "The Cheese Stands Alone." He borrowed one of Abe's verses to add to those he knew.
