Bob Dylan, “A Hard Rain’s gonna Fall”. This song is from 1962 or 1963, so it’s not an anti-Vietnam-War song. It’s more of an anti-war song altogether. The hard rain people were worried about was nuclear.
If all that Bob Dylan had ever done was Highway 61 Revisited it would be clear that he was one of the giants of the field. But the songs on that album were only a few of the many, many excellent songs that he wrote in his career.
