Chorus: We are all Woody’s Children We are all glory-bound When we smile, when we sing his songs We show we know the truth he found In your Oklahoma home A troubadour, all set to roam You and your family, felt the Dust Bowl blow You sang your songs, and let us know Chorus You rode the rails as hobos do Saw hard hit people, scraping through Took scattered voices, feeling small You made a glorious chorus of us all Chorus Every businessman or woman, in a suit Every migrant farmer pickin’ fruit When they listen to your song They know there’s one family where we belong Chorus You raised us well, so we became Your children proud to share your name Bound for glory, you showed the way Bound together, that’s how we’ll stay [instrumental] Now we children know what to do It takes hard work, to make a song come true Our time is now, to follow through It’s time to make this land for me and you Chorus (3x)


A song to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Woody Guthrie's birth. All proceeds to directly to the Guthrie Center.
