Labor Day

Happy Labor Day! I thought I might celebrate Labor Day with a post of Woody Guthrie songs. First off, of course, 'Talkin' Hard Work Blues'. This song is just hilarious!

"While we are on the subject of hard work,

I just wanted to tell you that I am a man who likes hard work.

I was born working and I worked my way up by hard work.

I ain't ever got no where, but I got there by hard work."

And a couple of classics...

Leadbelly along with Woody, Cisco Houston and Sonny Terry...

and further on the subject of hard work, some more Leadbelly ...
