Thread Name: Tribute to Woody
Subject: RE: Tribute to Woody
I heard Dylan singing Woody's Mrs. Roosevelt this afternoon.

Dear Mrs. Roosevelt, don't hang your head to cry:
His mortal clay is laid away, but his good work fills the sky;
The world was lucky to see him born.

Woody, a protest singer, could be very positive. Wouldn't it be great if we could all sing about at least one politician, 'The world was lucky to see him born.'
(The lyrics are on Digital Tradition.)
