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.THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND words and music by Woody GuthrieChorus:This land is your land, this land is my landFrom California, to the New York IslandFrom the redwood forest, to the gulf stream watersThis land was made for you and meAs I was walking a ribbon of highwayI saw above me an endless skywayI saw below me a golden valleyThis land was made for you and meChorusI've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footstepsTo the sparkling sands of her diamond desertsAnd all around me a voice was soundingThis land was made for you and meChorusThe sun comes shining as I was strollingThe wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rollingThe fog was lifting a voice come chantingThis land was made for you and meChorusAs I was walkin' - I saw a sign thereAnd 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!ChorusIn the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steepleNear the relief office - I see my peopleAnd some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'If this land's still made for you and me.
