There was a thread where we discussed this question in the "Open Forum" section of this site. Go there and scroll down about 10 threads - and read the whole thing to get the right answer. Some people here actually get to talk with Jorma on occasion, and give some good inside information on subjects like this. You could always ask further, too... Hope this helps!

JA did Uncle Sam's Blues, but it sounds as if you're describing Country Joe McDonald doing the I-Think-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag.

"And it's one, two, three, what are we fightin' for? Don't ask me I don't give a damn, next stop is Vietnam..."

Cheers,
Dave

Yeah - if the word "Vietnam" is in the song, then Dave's got it!
"Uncle Sam Blues", we found out, was originally done around the Korean war - but also performed by JA at Woodstock.
And I seem to remember Jorma (Hot Tuna) doing it just a few weeks ago here in NY - yaaaaaayyyyyy!!!

(nice touch, huh?)

Wonder what you meant, by the way, by "wasnt really sung more talked." "Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin" is definitely sung by Country Joe. The only time he is talking is when he is chastising the crowd to sing louder.

Speaking of Country Joe . . .
He is touring with the Starship on their new tour.
Should be very interesting.
