This song haunts me. Sometimes I hear it in my dreams. Roger McGuinn is the real master, but Arlo Guthrie does it better than most. Sadly, I cannot find an adequate live performance to share on the blog, but the art is interesting and the lyrics are mostly intact in this version.
Given the fact that nearly everyone who writes for this blog or otherwise supports it is interested in power relationships, gender issues, and imperialism but we don’t talk about that stuff here any more because 24/7 pop culture geekery just sells better and we are after readers, it seems like the right thing to post today.
