#1: Happy International Folksingers' Day!

Posted on 2006-07-14 15:56:28 by Suffet

By my decree, today is...

INTERNATIONAL FOLKSINGERS' DAY

....in honor of Woody Guthrie (born on July 14,1912, in Okemah, Oklahoma,
USA) and all the folksingers of the world.


IT'S WOODY'S BIRTHDAY!
Tune: Ten Little Indians (traditional)
Words: Stephen L. Suffet © 2001

I'm taking off, it's Woody's birthday,
You're taking off, it's Woody's birthday,
We're taking off, it's Woody's birthday,
We'll be back to work tomorrow!

I'm taking off, it's Bastille Day,
Vive la France, it's Bastille Day,
Storm the walls, it's Bastille Day,
And it's also Woody's birthday!

We need a day off, we're folksingers,
Banjo pickers and rafter ringers,
Guitar pickers and real humdingers,
Besides it's Woody's birthday!

We'll sing for Pete and Leadbelly,
Of Jesse James and Ned Kelley,
Of Barnacle Bill and Little Nellie,
Hey, it's Woody's birthday!

I'm taking off, it's Woody's birthday,
You're taking off, it's Woody's birthday,
We're taking off, it's Woody's birthday,
We'll be back to work tomorrow!
[Spoken: If we still have jobs!]


Have a happy whatever you call it!

--- Steve
