Stay Away From The White House

“Stay Away From The White House”, a new (videotaped) version (with Dutch sub-titles) has emerged, from 1980, taken off Dutch television. The original is from the San Francisco State University Poetry Archivesand was recorded in 1974. The song was composed on Christmas Day (December 25) 1973 

It might be interesting to compare this with the official recorded version on First Blues. 


 (and, indeed, with another version, recorded later that summer at Naropa – see here)


“Stay away from the White House/ Stay away I wish you well/Stay away from the White House/Or you’ll go to Vajra Hell“!
