Woody‘s Dust Bowl songs are great and did more to tell the plight of the farmers of the Midwest than any newspaper or government. Never a big fan of This land is your land, which is definitely not the American way of confiscation and private property by lawyer and gunpoint. I think the Alice song was by Woody’s son, Arlo.I always liked Woody Guthrie, Alice's Restaurant..
He definitely was! And boring. Most folk music is so boring. Funny story about Pete Seeger trying to take an axe to Dylan’s amps at Newport folk festival because he was using electricity. I guess he was a Luddite as well as a Commie. Funny, you ask anybody under 50 what a “commie collaborator” is and they wouldn’t have any idea what you’re talking about.Pete Seeger was another commie collaborator.
Here you go. It's the second joke.In America we can gripe about America.
Ronald Reagan once quipped "there was a Russian man man to speaking to another Russian man and said in America a man can gripe about what Reagan does, the other man said well in Russia you can too……complain about what Reagan does".
