Woody Guthrie on Capitalism.

This is a short extract from the book on Woody Guthrie that I’m presently reading – Woody Guthrie’s Modern World Blues by Will Kaufman.

I’m enjoying it – even if at times it reads like a document submitted for a PhD.

‘Woody Guthrie even viewed the Capitalist system, which he hated, as an automobile.

This private profit machine

Has got eight cylinders

Greed. Fear. Lies. Hate.

Jail. Court. Asylum. Tomb.

Woody sure had a way of summing things up!
