Woodie was a Communist.
And he was named after ... our first Progressive president, Wodrow Wilson.
Huh. Was unaware of that until I looked him up in Wiki to see if he was still alive.
I already knew of the lyrics Glenn Beck recently discovered -- verses you never sang in grade school, or even knew about. But he wrote 'em back during the long FDR administration in 1940.
As I was walkin' - I saw a sign thereHis guitar was famous for having the "This Machine Kill Fascists" sign on it.
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!
In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.
I gave it a little tweak.
