Earworm attack...

Does anyone know where there's a legal download of that goofy old protest song, "One Tin Soldier"? It's been going through my head all day, and the only way to kill an earworm is to feed it. (I just remember sitting in the back seat of a car when I was very small with my cousin K--who was also small, but bigger than I was--trying to learn the lyrics. I think it was the first pop song I learned, unless you count "Sing a Song," but I don't count things learned on Sesame Street ;). K, for the record, also laboriously learned and wrote out the words to the M*A*S*H themesong, and taught them to me. I recall running laps in elementary school gym, singing under my breath, "The sword of time will pierce our skin... it doesn't hurt when it begins..." I can't believe I still remember the words! Depressing thing.)

Anyway, I went looking at Napster, and they've got nada. I don't know the music download sites at all.
