Are You an Urban Folk Revival Musician?

Canadian folk musician Lew Dite was greatly influenced by urban folk musician Woody Guthrie.  Follow this link to hear him sing Woody Guthrie’s This Train is Bound for Glory.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory,

Don’t carry nothing but the righteous and the holy.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train don’t carry no gamblers, this train;

This train don’t carry no gamblers, this train;

This train don’t carry no gamblers,

Liars, thieves, nor big shot ramblers,

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train don’t carry no liars, this train;

This train don’t carry no liars, this train;

This train don’t carry no liars,

She’s streamlined and a midnight flyer,

This train don’t carry no liars, this train.

This train don’t carry no smokers, this train;

This train don’t carry no smokers, this train

This train don’t carry no smokers,

Two bit liars, small time jokers,

This train don’t carry no smokers, this train.

This train don’t carry no con men, this train;

This train don’t carry no con men, this train;

This train don’t carry no con men,

No wheeler dealers, here and gone men,

This train don’t carry no con men, this train.

This train don’t carry no rustlers, this train;

This train don’t carry no rustlers, this train;

This train don’t carry no rustlers,

Sidestreet walkers, two bit hustlers,

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

This train is bound for glory,

Carries nothing but the righteous and the holy.

This train is bound for glory, this train.

Is there something affecting your life or is there something that you feel can be best expressed in song in order share it with others or make others aware of it? Become an Urban Folk Revival musician. Rewrite three verses of “This Train,” by Woody Guthrie, as an expression of your thoughts and feelings.  Here’s my example.

This class has got me grading this class.

This class has got me grading this class.

This class has got me grading,

Getting behind with papers remaining.

This class has got me grading this class.

This class is keeping me busy this class.

This class is keeping me busy this class.

This class is keeping me busy,

Writing assignments is making me dizzy.

This class is keeping me busy this class.

This class is helpin’ my learnin’ this class.

This class is helpin’ my learnin’ this class.

This class is helpin’ my learnin,

Getting’ it done is all I’m yearnin’
