 Lindbergh  by  Woody Guthrie 

 words submitted to LKH Forum by Richard Sloan 

Mister Charlie Lindbergh, he flew to old Berlin,
Got 'im a big Iron Cross, and he flew right back again
To Washington, Washington.


Missus Charlie Lindbergh, she come dressed in red,
Said: "I'd like to sleep in that pretty White House bed
In Washington, Washington."

Lindy said to Annie: "We'll get there by and by,
 But we'll have to split the bed up with Wheeler, Clark, and Nye 
In Washington, Washington."

Hitler wrote to Lindy, said "Do your very worst,"

 Lindy started an outfit that he called America First 
In Washington, Washington.


All around the country, Lindbergh he did fly, 
Gasoline was paid for by Hoover, Clark, and Nye 
In Washington, Washington.

Lindy said to Hoover: "We'll do the same as France:
Make a deal with Hitler, and then we'll get our chance
In Washington, Washington


Then they had a meetin', and all the Firsters come,
Come on a-walkin', they come on a-runnin',
 In Washington, Washington 

Yonder comes Father Coughlin, wearin' the silver chain,
Cash on his stomach and Hitler on the brain.
In Washington, Washington

Mister John L. Lewis would sit and straddle a fence,
 His daughter signed with Lindbergh, and we ain't seen her since
In Washington, Washington

Hitler said to Lindy: "Stall 'em all you can,  
Gonna bomb Pearl Harbor with the help of old Japan."
 In Washington, Washington

Then on a December mornin', the bombs come from Japan,
Wake Island and Pearl Harbor, kill fifteen hundred men.
 Washington, Washington

Now Lindy tried to join the army, but they wouldn't let 'im in,
'Fraid he'd sell to Hitler a few more million men.
In  Washington, Washington 

So I'm a gonna tell you people: If Hitler's gonna be beat,
The common workin' people has got to take the seat
In Washington, Washington.

And I'm gonna tell you workers, 'fore you cash in your checks:
They say "America First," but they mean "America Next!"
In Washington, Washington.  

 

 Philip Roth imagines a president Charles A. Lindbergh in 1940

Swastikas in the White House? The buzz in New York publishing circles this week is revolving around Philip Roth's first novel in three years, The Plot Against America, to be published in October by Houghton Mifflin.
In it Charles Lindbergh who flew from New York to Paris solo and nonstop in 1927 and later became a celebrated isolationist whose speeches and writings reflected a nativist anti-Semitism, defeats Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940. "As war rages in Europe, the new President Lindbergh comes to an 'understanding' with Hitler," Publishers Weekly reports, "putting Jews in this country in fear for their lives."
It will be fascinating to see how Roth's often corrosive satire treats Lindbergh, sympathetically portrayed as a deeply flawed American hero in A. Scott Berg's 1999 Pulitzer Prize-winning Lindbergh. But that was published before news broke last year of Lindbergh's secret family, including three illegitimate children, in Germany.
And the novel is appearing during what already has become a nastily contested presidential election.
