So curious Bob Dylan is coming up so much now on the boards...synchronicity.

ADrumlinDaisy just mentioned that Bob Dylan's "songs were acts of rare genius; pretty much everything I ever heard him say in interviews was incoherent and childish." I just watched a long biography of Woody Guthrie after the Dust Bowl documentary last night and his life was a disaster, yet he gave a voice to the labor movement, for the common man; he left a beautiful story through his songs about America during some very turbulent and heart wrenching times.

Bob Dylan played a part in making Woody famous in modern times. He was part of a resurgent movement of folk music, telling the story of the common man and lent a voice to the protests of the 1960s.

For all our political differences that divide this nation, this land was made for you and me.

words and music by Woody Guthrie

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me


I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me


The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me


As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!


In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.
