Sleeve Notes

The song, "Hobo's Lullaby" was written by Goebel Reeves. It is included because it was one of Woody's favorite songs. The rendition of "This Land Is Your Land" is taken from the original recording Woody made for Folkways Records in the late 1940's, through modern recording techniques Woody is joined by Arlo who sings additional verses taught to him by Woody when he was in hospital. Woody never recorded these verses.
