Arlo Guthrie wants to be known as Fannie Mae

In the late 1960s Woodie Guthrie’s son Arlo introduced a song about drugs to a stoned audience at Woodstock. In his song “Coming Into Los Angeles,” Guthrie proudly proclaimed that he was carrying illegal drug contraband into the United States and he plead “don’t touch my bags if you please, Mr. Customs Man.”

Well, now the drug-crazed folks Arlo Guthrie was singing to are in power. They’re making decisions about how to handle the financial CRISIS!! Maybe Arlo should have been singing this song 40 years ago instead of using cannabis for his inspiration.

Arlo Guthrie presents, “I’m Changing My Name to Fannie Mae”:

And here he is 40 years ago at Woodstock
