'Hey Woody Guthrie I Wrote You A Song'

.... Hey Hey Woody Guthrie I wrote you a song
About a funny ole world that's comin' along

It's sick and it's hungry It's tired and it's torn
It looks like it's dyin' and it's hardly been born.

Hey Woody Guthrie
I know that you know
All the things I'm singin' and many times more

I'm singin' this song but I can't sing enough

There's not many men done the things that you done. ....

(-- Bob Dylan; from Martin Scorsese's No Direction Home)


The best book to learn of the things Woody "done" is Woody Guthrie: A Life.
