Odetta brings the haunting refrain of one of Bob Dylan's most radical songs about war, inequality and oppression: Things like that don't happen / No more, nowadays.
This oldie was originally written during the depression (1931) by Yip Harburg, who was later blacklisted during the McCathy era. This video updates its relevance to the poor and disenfranchised in our nation today.
The singer, songwriter, guitarist and civil rights activist Odetta gives a haunting performance of Dylan's 'Long Ago, Far Away.' 'One man lived just like a king/The other man begged on the street/Things like that don’t happen/No more, nowadays.'
