The Band – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

An evening pause: From the Martin Scorsese documentary, The Last Waltz (1978).

Note that if a band tried to write a song like this today, sympathetic to the southerns who died during the Civil War, they would probably find their careers destroyed. So much for artistic freedom, and having empathy for all souls.
