    ------ About the song Donna Donna performed by Joan Baez

This was a popular folk song in New Mexico in 1965. I performed it with my friend Kitty at various venues around Albuquerque many times. We were in high school at the time and performed it at some school functions also. Over 40 years later, we were playing Words With Friends and the word dona came up. We were both immediately reminded of the song. I hadn't thought about it for many years, but it brought back warm memories for both of us.

    ------ About the song There But For Fortune performed by Joan Baez

Its "I'll show you *a* young man (etc) " as otherwise the lyrics don't make sense. You can certainly hear the 'a' when Joan Baez sings it. I like this song. It takes me back to the 60s, when all prisoners were innocent, all youth was misunderstood, all the homeless were victims of cruel fate, all wars were evil, and so on. Life seemed a lot simpler then.

I learn to play the guitar because of this song | Reviewer: Ramlah Sulaiman
    ------ About the song Donna Donna performed by Joan Baez

My memory while listening to this song took me to Sekolah Tun Fatimah Johor Bahru Malaysia in early 70s. I was 17 then. A pretty Malay girl (Maria Samad I think)sang while playing a guitar. Today,over 40 years later, I am learning to play the guitar(I am a pensioner aged 62)and my first song learning the chords (Am, Em, F and Dm) is Donna, donna, Donna). Oh how I love to play and sing this beautiful but sad song. I'm not good yet and the tune was 'off' but I will perfect it (give myself half a year, it doesn't matter). Thank you so much for putting it here...

Since High School | Reviewer: Margene M.
    ------ About the song Diamonds and Rust performed by Joan Baez

Here I am, still loving this song from high school and I'm a grandmother now. I didn't know that it would be many years before I fell for the man with eyes "bluer than robin eggs" but I felt it. I already had "our song" in case the relationship went no where. But I can't say it didn't go anywhere because it lingers and hangs in my heart.

Evocative | Reviewer: Bronwen Evans
    ------ About the song Birmingham Sunday performed by Joan Baez

I am a teacher, and I often sing songs while walking to work. The 8th and 9th graders I teach in an inner city school, call each other the N word, and have no idea about the history of that word. So I sing this song, and show them documentaries about the struggle for Civil Rights. It's very hard for them to understand, as it is so far removed from the way things are now. But I keep on singing, and telling them.....

    ------ About the song Birmingham Sunday performed by Joan Baez

A seminal event in civil rights and American history. I cry whever I hear this tribute. My tears are not for the girls for they are with God. I cry and pray for the pain of those left here to deal with the emptyness. I also pray and cry for the souls of those wretched men possessed by evil.
Ephesians 6:4 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
As Bob Dylan sang, they were only pawns in their game.
