Streets of London - Ralph McTell 

 

Have you seen the old man outside the seaman's mission
Memory fading with the medal ribbons that he wears
And in the winter city, the rain cries a little pity
For one more forgotten hero, and a World that doesn't care

"Music can change the world because it can change people." - Bono

The Ballad of Ira Hayes - Johnny Cash. A member of the Apache Nation, he was one of the men who raised the American Flag at Iwo Jima. Sadly, this song is about what happened to him after that.

Two featuring Fess Parker:

 

The Ballad of Davy Crockett - Tennessee Ernie Ford (and recorded first by Fess Parker, himself).

The Ballad of Daniel Boone -  Vera Matson (with her husband, Ken Darby) and Lionel Newman. And, again, recorded by Fess Parker, near as I can tell.
