Song Of The Day - "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" by Arlo Guthrie

Song Of The Day - "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" by Arlo Guthrie from the album "Alice's Restaurant"  It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Arlo's classic 1967 shaggy dog story of a bunch of hippies doin' their best to lend a hand to a friend by disposing some garbage on Thanksgiving.  It's a true story about a true Alice...in fact, my Aunt's sister was good friends with the real Alice back in the day!  What starts off as a silly story about disposing garbage turns comically serious when it gets around to the draft.  I found this neat little illustrated video of the original album version in two parts. Enjoy and have a safe, happy and thankful Thanksgiving!
