Alice's Restaurant Massacree spans 18 minutes
and mixes humorous narrative story-telling
in which Guthrie relates a real-life experience
of how a littering ticket on his record
made him ineligible for the later draft to go fight in the Vietnam War...
The song has since become one of the most iconic landmarks
of the '60s folk music scene
often broadcast by radio stations every Thanksgiving
due to the time of year of the original incident...!
