In 1976, American folk-singer Arlo Guthrie met with Oklahoma Senator Fred Harris in a saloon in New Hampshire and agreed to help Harris with his bid for the Democratic Presidential nomination. Guthrie supported Harris’ populist campaign, and performed 23 benefits for the Senator. Guthrie is the son of Woody Guthrie, famous for the American folk-song This Land is Your Land. Arlo Guthrie gave Harris the rights to use his father’s song in the campaign slogan "By supporting Fred Harris in our Democratic primary, we can make this land our land again."
