I doubt if birthdays are too important if you're dead, but I just thought it was worth mentioning since most of us have been influenced to one degree or another by Woody. This also coincides (of course) with the start of the "Woody Guthrie Free Folk Festival" in his birthplace, Okemah,Oklahoma.

HBD Woody......and thanks. I'll sing "Hobo's Lullaby" for my boys tonight.

Broken 'Okie'

Live a life of 'Russian Roulette',

Running from that smoking gun.

To find the ones you leave behind you,

Ain't got nowhere to run.
. If life is a sad story,

Then his was too hard to bear.

If Woody's 'Bound For Glory',

I hope, we'll all meet him there.

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie,

And his 'Fascist Killing Machine'.

It's 'Hard Travelling', Woody,

Still following the dream

Just a broken 'Okie',

Who's rambling days are done.

Won't be riding no more freight trains,

But, 'Railroad Pete' travels on,

Pete's, a tough little critter,

The kind you'd seek out as a friend.

You can tell he ain't no quitter,

He'll see it through 'til' the end.

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie,

And his 'Fascist Killing Machine'.

It's 'Hard Travelling', Woody,

Still following the dream

Roger Gall

Happy Birthday Woody

Woody was always proud that he was born on Bastille Day -- a revolutionary from day 1.

"Here's to Cisco and Sonny and Leadbelly too
and to all the good people who traveled with you
Here's to the hearts and the hands of the men
who came with the dust and are gone on the wind" As long as we keep his music alive, he'll go on. Happy Birthday Woody.
