@nyadrn - I never saw the movie, Billie Jack. After reading the link, I'm not sure that I want to. It sounds very violent and disturbing. Maybe the movie producers saw Billie Jack as the One Tin Soldier.

 

When the song was first released in 1969, it was part of the peace movement. The lyrics of the song have something of a religious undercurrent; not sure if that was intended or just my perception. It's the story of a peaceable kingdom of mountain people who offered to share their treasure with the valley people below. The valley people are greedy and want the treasure for themselves, so they kill the mountain people. When they proceed to claim their treasure, they find the words "peace on earth" was all it said. It really tugs at my heart strings! 

 

This was my senior year in high school. We sang this song a lot, and loved it!
