I need the Music (guitar or Piano notes) for the Woody Guthrie song, Dear Mrs Roosevelt--or at least information on what the tune might have been on which the song was written--it sounds familiar, but I cant place it. Whatever the music is or is from, I need it if possible in piano form, or a source where I might obtain it--reply to
plshriver@hotmail.com Thanks

The words and music are in the Woody Guthrie Songbook, copyright 1976. I don't recognize the tune and there is nothing in there that I could find naming its source. If you don't get it from anyone else, PM me.

I can't find the song in the current Hal Leonard Woody Guthrie Songbook that Mick linked to, and I doubt that it's available in any source that's still in print. The world needs a good Woody songbook, I think. I e-mailed a scan to Paul from an out-of-print book.
Is it an original tune, or did Woody get it from another song?

I just spent some time cruising the Woody Guthrie Foundation website listed above and couldn't fing it, so I popped an email off to the archivist to ask for background data, tune, etc, so we can compare it to what is in the DT. When I made the link above I didn't check out whether it was listed in the booke. I also checked an older copy of The Woody Guthrie Songbook in my collection. Not there either. I also took a look at the Sing Out Collected Reprints (both volumes).

I will let you know what I get back from the archives of the WGF.

All the best,

Mick

You will find a very nice recording of the song on an album titiled "Woodeye" by the Joel Rafael Band. The band perform in Oklahoma every year at the Woodie Guthrie Festival. They are a California group.

Seems to me I've heard another song that is very similar to this (on a different subject) that uses the same tune and the phrase "we sure was lucky" instead of "the world was lucky."
Can anybody clarify my partial recollection, or am I singing through my hat on this?

The Woody Guthrie Songbook I have, copyright 1976, edited by Harold Leventhal and Marjorie Guthrie -- designed by Will Hopkins -- does have the song in it, and a lot of others, good ones, of course. It also has great photographs, notes, stories.
It should be reprinted!

Mine doesn't have a copyright date, but it is edited by Judy Bell and Nora Guthrie. It is loaded with Woody's drawings and photo's.

The best collection of Woody's songs is in the NEARLY COMPLETE WOODY GUTHRIE SONGBOOK published in '62 or '63. It's been out of print since then and the last time I talked to Nora Guthrie she told me that their are too many mistakes in it to reprint it(which I think is a shame). I just found a copy on e-bay for 20 pounds in th UK, and I'm e-mailing the guy who owns it to see how much the shipping will be. By the way, Dylan recorded MRS ROOSEVELT on the Guthrie Memorial albums in '68.
