Interesting cover. That guitar player is great!
As Long as you`ve made the payments and you possess the deed..this Land is indeed your land ! What Sandi…you afraid of FACTS ? Do the FACTS of the day disturb your emotions ? These are what people of reality deal with on a day-to-day basis, of which you are obviously not a part of, Sandi.
Hey, Dan….looks like you`ll have to shut down the `declination of Rush` site now…the GE, Immelt story is alive and well….and Factual ! Thanks for making your fears known to me, all wrapped up real nice and pretty !
A very interesting article on the ethics of bicycling and the difference between bikes and cars. Other than the omission of those sometimes entitled bikers who ride in groups, I agree with most of what this man has to say. Check it out:
Jeff Doto, are you a drinking man?
The way I get it from Pete Seeger Woody was hitch-hiking from Penn. On his way to NYC where Pete and Toshi where living. Woody heard on the radio somewhere Kate Smith singing God Bless American. Woody wrote down this land was made for me and wrote the song out. This was 1940 and Woody recorded it over at Moses Asch place, Folkways Record when he got in NYC. Nothing ever came of it and somehow it got in the school books for kids. At the end of the war and the early 1950’s kids from around the county knew that tune. Pete sang it wherever he was playing and now it has many different version not only in this county but around the world.
We sang it last night here in NY and it still has an effect on people.
#2 You so don’t get what this song is saying.
As to this version of the tune, it was a great way to start my morning!
