I Ain't Marching Anymore - Phil Ochs (1965)

Wikipedia - "I Ain't Marching Anymore was Phil Ochs' second LP, released on Elektra Records in 1965 ... Of the twelve originals, probably the most noted was the title track, with its distinctive trilling guitar part, that spoke of a soldier sick of fighting. Also of note was the album closer, 'Here's to the State of Mississippi', a biting criticism of that state's lack of civil rights and general bigoted attitude."
