Thread Name: what do you think....I Ain't Got No Home rewrite
Subject: RE: what do you think....
John, I also agree about the strength of the original. I certainly don't think I have improved upon the song. I just wanted to speak to what a dissident like Woody would see wrong with our times. I think the Farming on the shares verse is the best verse of the song, But , who is farming on the shares today? Not Many, if any.
I also am not as politically motivated as Woody, so mine is more about the overall complection of our times and not about the political issues Woody probably would have attacked.
