Best Vietnam War Protest Songs – The Guess Who “Hand Me Down World” [VIDEOS]
Aside the song “Bus Rider,” this was a main song for the trio ‘Brother’, who were made up of Kurt Winter, Bill Wallace and Vance Masters. All 3 members of ‘Brother’ wrote the song.
When The Guess Who recorded it, lead singer Burton Cummings made sure Winter got the sole writing credit, since he was a member of The Guess Who.
Wallace and Masters received monetary compensation under this agreement.
“Anybody here see the noise, see the fear
I think we missed it
Anybody here see the love, see the hate
Don’t Give me no hand me down shoes
Don’t Give me no hand me down love
Don’t Give me no hand me down world
Got one already.”
The video has cameos of Johnny Cash and “What Is Truth?”
