Woody Guthrie’s rendition of Goebbel Reeves’s “Hobo Lullaby,” a song about a heaven where there are no policemen around to harass anyone.
That’s David Carradine playing Woody hopping the boxcars in Hal Ashby’s film, Bound For Glory.

The movie needed to be made. I would’ve cast someone different in the lead role, however.
Who do you think would have made a good Woody?
If it was made today, I would’ve said “Sean Penn”. Back when it was made, maybe… Dustin Hoffman. It might be hard to see, but I see a little Lenny Bruce when I look at Guthrie…
