This is intended as a coda to my most recent post:
A long time ago, when I was in high school or college – I can’t remember – I found an old Folkways disk at the Multnomah County Library.
The disk was by a guy who I found to have a magical voice, who played a magical guitar and who was, therefore magical.
His name was Josh White.
Here are a few words from the best song on that disk.
“Lincoln set the Negro free
Why is he still in slavery?
Freedom for all is what he said
Free to suffer till he’s dead
It goes on.
But I think that is enough.
And we have donnie for president.
So we all know things are going to be good.
