John Lee Hooker – I Don’t Wanna Go To Vietnam

Boogie bluesman Hooker slows things way down, way down, to a shuffle, to comment on the Vietnam War. He would likely have been too old to have to serve, but was probably singing for others who had the blues about the conflict in the late 1960s and into the 1970s. Hooker notes that people lose friends there, and leave family behind, and there are enough troubles at home already.
