Today Woody Guthrie would have become 100 years old or better young, since his work, his songs, and his history is still alive. So I sat at my kitchen table and sang to him this song for his birthday.
Of course, I would have liked to use pictures of Woody Guthrie here, but I was not sure, whether some are free for use or not. Therefore I just used a picture of my dog, guitar and me on the road which fits somehow to Woody Guthrie. Happy birthday Woody Guthrie!
For the German speaking readers and listerners I recommend the newly edited translation of his Autobiography, which has moved and inspired me:
Bruce Springsteen über Woody Guthrie:
“Woody Guthrie berührt dich tief im Innern und erweckt den Teil in dir, der an deinen Nächsten denkt.”
“Dear whoever.Woody lives. And I am glad. Love.”
