I wouldn't link Woody Guthrie too closely with Washington. He was not born here, as far as I know he came here for the purpose of writing songs as a job for Bonneville Dam...he is from Oklahoma isn't he...and wrote some great dust bowl songs. Granted, Eastern Washington has very dry land...there really are 2 Washingtons, Eastern and Western...great differences between them. But I don't think of Woody Guthrie as having much to do with Washington really.
