this land is your land, this land is my land
I work a crappy customer service gig (which is actually far superior as far as customer service gigs go.)|
In order to pass the time, one day i brought in one of the biggest books i could find which is
"Woody Guthrie" "A Life by Joe Klein". This book gives me something to look forward to and fills me head with useless trivia, as well as informing me about stuff I am intrested in, or want to know about.
Obviously I was intrested enough in Woody to buy this book, but honetly didn't know much about him aside from a couple of songs and that he was somehow "in-floo-en-shul" on what we now refer to as folk music.
I've always been a fan of folk music since my bf introduced me to a scottish folk musician named Dick Gaughan, and am a giant lover of the orginal blues, bluegrass etc. It is just recently I have found myself drawn to "folk" folk music, and through the aid of this book I guess I am gaining a new respect for it, and Woody.
Anyways... thats' my story...kinda.
