Another BIG Date for Music History

July 14, 1912- Woodrow Wilson (Woody) Guthrie is born in Okemah, Oklahoma.

How fortunate we are to live in the time of You Tube when we can put together compilations that let us see and relive some neat parts of our music history right here.

So we hear Woody singing and see his picture and get challenged as much today by his words as people were last century.

This is the song Woody is best known for. It says more than any of us can even begin to say about the breadth and depth of the American country.
