about

I live right by the mighty Columbia River in Vancouver, WA and I wrote this for Woody on his 100th Birthday. This is dedicated to Woody’s younger sister Mary Jo Guthrie Edgmon, to my good friends in Oklahoma, and the great folks at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in Okemah, OK.

lyrics

Oh Woody
Daniel Weber © 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP)

They left Oklahoma, in the Grapes of Wrath
In the Dust Bowl days, they never looked back
Oh, they never looked back, but they’re moving again
California’s no longer the Promised Land

Chorus:
Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
And what would you say?
Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
We could sure use you today

We’re willing to work, there’s no work to be done
Illegal or union, it don’t matter none
‘Cause the Wall Street bankers and corporate greed
They’ve shipped all the jobs, overseas

Chorus:
Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
And what would you say?
Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
We could sure use you today

Now there’s drought in the plains, and fires in the West
It was the hottest summer on record I guess
With a cough in their lungs, dried tears on their face
It’s lookin’ more and more like the Dust Bowl days

Bridge:
And I still hear Woody, his guitar in hand
Singing songs for the men on the Grand Coulee Dam
Singing ‘This Land is your Land, this land is mine’
Oh Woody, we sure miss you tonight

Now I’m livin’ out there, in the Great Northwest
So long as it rains, may we be blessed
And its long live the salmon, long after we’re gone
Then its ‘Roll on Columbia, Columbia Roll On!’

Chorus:
Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
And what would you say?
Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
We could sure use you today

Oh Woody, Oh Woody, where are you now?
We could sure use you today
We could sure use you today
We could sure, use you today!
