    Single version of the wonderful song he's talking about, which can be applied to places like Syria today (there's a live version toward the end of the above video):



    It was back in nineteen forty-two,
    I was a member of a good platoon.
    We were on maneuvers in-a Loozianna,
    One night by the light of the moon.
    The captain told us to ford a river,
    That's how it all begun.

    We were -- knee deep in the Big Muddy,
    But the big fool said to push on.

    The Sergeant said, "Sir, are you sure,
    This is the best way back to the base?"
    "Sergeant, go on! I forded this river
    'Bout a mile above this place.
    It'll be a little soggy but just keep slogging.
    We'll soon be on dry ground."

    We were -- waist deep in the Big Muddy
    And the big fool said to push on.

    The Sergeant said, "Sir, with all this equipment
    No man will be able to swim."
    "Sergeant, don't be a Nervous Nellie,"
    The Captain said to him.
    "All we need is a little determination;
    Men, follow me, I'll lead on."

    We were -- neck deep in the Big Muddy
    And the big fool said to push on.

    All at once, the moon clouded over,
    We heard a gurgling cry.
    A few seconds later, the captain's helmet
    Was all that floated by.
    The Sergeant said, "Turn around men!
    I'm in charge from now on."
    And we just made it out of the Big Muddy
    With the captain dead and gone.

    We stripped and dived and found his body
    Stuck in the old quicksand.
    I guess he didn't know that the water was deeper
    Than the place he'd once before been.
    Another stream had joined the Big Muddy
    'Bout a half mile from where we'd gone.

    We were lucky to escape from the Big Muddy
    When the big fool said to push on.

    Well, I'm not going to point any moral;
    I'll leave that for yourself
    Maybe you're still walking, you're still talking
    You'd like to keep your health.
    But every time I read the papers
    That old feeling comes on;

    We're -- waist deep in the Big Muddy
    And the big fool says to push on.
    Waist deep in the Big Muddy
    And the big fool says to push on.
    Waist deep in the Big Muddy
    And the big fool says to push on.
    Waist deep! Neck deep! Soon even a
    Tall man'll be over his head, we're
    Waist deep in the Big Muddy!
    And the big fool says to push on!
    To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them.

    This album's a banger.

    At this point it feels like I've linked to the same songs multiple times on this forum. Guess I'm restricted.

    Good take on an old Swedish folk song. The lyrics are interesting. The story is "pagan", but here it is given obvious Christian overtones. The disparaging word "trollkvinna" (troll-woman) means a sorceress, a word used by Christians about pagans. The line "from the spawn of Necken and the devil" is pretty telling as to the way Christianity spread, as the Neck was part of pagan folklore.

    To be, or not to be, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them.

    The summer of 1967 was a time of warmth and strife, drugs and war, poetry, visual art and mind-bending music, for which Airplane played a pivotal role, encouraging the growing hippie community to “feed your head,” as the band’s seminal “White Rabbit” espoused.



    Is there a drug you miss?
    Quaaludes. They don’t make them anymore, and we’re lucky because we’d be off to the races with that. … You can take Quaaludes and have a day of being silly, and you’re done. There’s no hangover, no six months of being a zombie. If Quaaludes came out again, I’d buy a big dark amber glass bottle and keep it in the refrigerator.
