All men dream: but not equally.
Those who Dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds
Wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the
Dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
May act their dream with open eyes, to make it Possible.
This I did.
T. E. Lawrence,
The Seven Pillars of Wisdom

Its not so much a song about dodging the draft as it is a song making fun of silly government bureaucracy.

There is a strong element of protest against Vietnam in it.  The whole point of the chorus line is a protest against Vietnam, that's the point of the song.

Didn't know PV was a pot smoking hippie back in the 70s
