The Song in My Head December 20, 2008

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

Is anyone else old/folky enough to remember Arlo Guthrie’s cover of the Tom Paxton song, “I’m Changing My Name to Chrysler”? I had it on the Arlo Guthrie/Pete Seeger album, Precious Friend (1981). These days, I can’t seem to get it out of my head. I wonder why.

Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime (of the slime) . . .

Wow — it is as if this were written for these times.

I’m old enough, but apparently not folky enough to remember it — although having seen Arlo a few times, I’m willing to bet I heard him sing it.

The song is new to me but I’ve always liked Arlo.

I didn’t know Arlo was a prophet….
