I Ain’t Got No Home in this World Anymore

Written by Woody Guthrie in the 1930’s, this song showcases Wody’s ability to tell his own story and furthermore to join it to the stories of the thousands of others who were also driven from their homes by the duststorms and hard times. He speaks for us all. For the homeless today, and for all of us who fight on.

  1. Wonderful tribute, great rendition. My parents always used to play Woody Guthrie for me. (As well as the Weavers and other folk/voice-of-the-people music.) Woody’s son Arlo was my mother’s student (I think in when he was in first grade or so.)

    1. Thank you. It’s interesting that the “movement”, and the cause of the workingclass is almost absent today. Politicians talk about the middle class. Everyone is middle class. It’s no longer respectable to just work and live your life. Anyhow Woody did show the way and it’s still a beautiful way. I have a bunch of his songs already recorded on this blog. I just enjoy them. Following your blog, too. Hurray for therapists.

    1. Thanks, it is interesting and I look forward to reading the book. I have read Bound for Glory and Seeds of Man (I believe that’s the title). Woody was a great writer. The LIbrary of Congress recordings with Alan Lomax also give us an opportunity to hear Woody chew the fat. He was just a great storyteller.
