i am the only person to have ever made a record of Joady Guthrie, Woody
Gurthrie's other son. It was quite interesting but very unsuccessful
commercially. Of course Joady was a red diaper baby. He had a little jingle on
the album that always poops into my mind at times like this, it went:
"Oh the Communists and the Capitalists
Are divvying up the world i guess
It seems that a way to me
They are both are democratic
And out for liberty
But i think they are pulling the wool right over you and me."
Tupac Shakur, who's mother was a Black Panther, says it all so clearly in his
wonderful track on ALL EYEZ ON ME his 2 CD set "Only God Can Judge Me Now"
ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME
"Id rather die like a man than live like a coward
Theres a ghetto up in heaven and its ours. Black Power
Is what we scream, as we dream, in a paranoid state
And our fate is a life time of hate.
Dear momma can you save me
And fuck peace cause the streets got our babies
We gotta eat, no more hesitation
Each and every black mans trapped
And they wonder why were runnin round strapped
Its the police, please try to see
Theres a million mother-fuckers stressin just like me.
Only God can judge me, now."
