Thread Name: 'Woody Guthrie, American Radical'
Subject: RE: 'Woody Guthrie, American Radical'
Ya' know.........That line, "made a man feel bad, no good......" ......I always just assumed he meant no good and/or worthless as opposed to "bad." Feeling bad depends on how you define it.   If you mean sad and/or depressed, that often is a by-product of many songs including a number of Woody's. For instance, Pastures of Plenty has a good message but frankly is a bit depressing as well.
