Last week we read about Woody Guthrie. Did you know he wrote over 1,000 songs? And did you know that This Land Is Your Land has 3 extra verses that have been left behind? I asked the Thirdlanders how the 3 verses change the tone of the song and Quiet Kid said, "I don't know. They just make the song more justice-y." I loved this. He's so right. Sing along, my friends:
In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
I'm trying to get myself out the door to the library to pick up a book called Which Side Are You On? It's about a song that was written in support of some coal miners. Not sure I'll go because it's cold out there and the roads are icy and I want to stay extra safe until Thursday afternoon when I get off work and leave on my trip to the South. Mom made some haystacks and they're a'callin' my name.
In conclusion, don't be a scab. Support Workers. Sing out!
