So sad. A protest song by definition ought not be politically correct. If the potential to offend or be politically incorrect was the reason for ending this tradition, then I am offended by the attempt to moderate and tone down the sometimes grit that once was one of the hallmarks of RP. 

I suppose all things change. But this was one small tradition that always brought a tear to my eyes, recalling the days when it was first sung and not too often played on commercial radio. Makes me serisouly consider withdrawing my longstanding financial support and send those pennies to another cause. It was a nice long run.

Hmmm... I'd say the overall message of the song as an anti-war ballad is stronger than a single use of a now inappropriate word. But I've always been overly sensitive to bombing women and children. 

 
Yeah, I believe meaning needs to consider context and the context of the draft during a lousy war is pretty incorrect.

I was able to find it under artists/arlo, so it’s still on the list. Hoping to hear it today.

Drats! I was looking around for it as well. If music is memories with a melody, then this song goes out to Leonard Crippen, where ever you are!
I vote to bring it back. Just my 2 cents.
Safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving!

End times. 

Seems inappropriate to retire it while there is still war and killin' and mean and nasty  stuff going on. 

 
I look forward to this every year.  There's no one here on Thanksgiving anymore except me.  What a bum deal.
