Thread Name: Lyr Req: Lindbergh (Woody Guthrie)
Subject: RE: Please help me find a Woody Guthrie song
Mr Charlie Lindbergh flew to old Berlin
Got him a big iron cross and he flew right back again
Mrs Charlie Lindbergh, she come dressed in red
Said "I'd like to sleep in that pretty Whitehouse bed
In Washington, in Washington

Lindy Said to Annie,"We'll get there by and by
But we'll have to split that bed up with Hoover(Wheeler?) Clark and Nye
In Washington, In Washington.

(then a verse about someone trying to) " straddle the fence"
Her husband signed with (....?) and we ain't seen her since
In Washington, in Washington.

So I wanna tell you people if Hitler's gonna be beat
Common working people have gotta take the seat
< To Washington, to Washington

And I wanna tell you people, 'fore you cash in your cheques
They say America first, but they mean, America next
To Washington, to Washington

Sorry but that's all I remember from back in '62 when I first learned the song at the tender age of 14.
