Arlo Guthrie最伟大的作品就是Alice's Restaurant，这首原版18分钟20秒的歌曲取材与他的真实经历，Arlo Guthrie以叙事的方式幽默的陈述了一个离奇黑色幽默故事，原版录音时他还请来了一群观众坐在他前面，这首歌最夸张的一次现场Arlo Guthrie曾经说了45分钟，巧合的是后来Richard Nixon的水门事件录音带长度也为18分钟半，Richard Nixon后来经常在演出这首歌时来这个来开玩笑，后来69年Arlo Guthrie把这个故事拍成了电影，许多故事中的人物都由真实人物扮演，包括他自己
His most famous work is "Alice's Restaurant", a talking blues song that lasts 18 minutes and 20 seconds (in its original recorded version; Guthrie has been known to spin the story out to forty-five minutes in concert). Guthrie has pointed out that this was also the exact length of one of the famous gaps in Richard Nixon's Watergate tapes. The Alice in the song is Alice Brock, who now runs an art gallery  in Provincetown.
The song, a bitingly satirical protest against the Vietnam War draft, is based on a true incident. In the song, Guthrie is called up for a draft examination, and rejected as unfit for military service as a result of a criminal record — consisting in its entirety of a single arrest, court appearance, fine and clean-up order for littering. It has been asserted that in reality, Guthrie, though a potential carrier of the genetically inherited Huntington's disease, was classified as fit for service (1A), but his draft-lottery number did not come up. However, on the DVD commentary for the film, Guthrie states that this is false, asserting that the events as presented in the song are true to real-life occurrences.
For a short period of time after its release in 1967, "Alice's Restaurant" was in frequent rotation on nearly every college and counter-culture radio station in the country — quite an accomplishment for an 18-minute song (albeit in an era not averse to extended jams). Indeed, it became a symbol of the late '60s and for many it defined an attitude and lifestyle that were lived out across the country in the ensuing years.
A 1969 film, directed and co-written by Arthur Penn, was based on the story. In addition to acting in this film, also called Alice's Restaurant, Guthrie has had minor roles in several movies and television series. Guthrie's memorable appearance at the 1969 Woodstock Festival was documented in the Michael Wadleigh film Woodstock.
