"Lindbergh" as written by and Woody Guthrie....
Mister Charlie Lindbergh, he flew to old Berlin
Got 'im a big Iron Cross, and he flew right back again
To Washington, Washington

Misses 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 com
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
In 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
