"Woody's Children" by Doug Mishkin

Pete Seeger famously said that the folksingers who came after Woody Guthrie were Woody's children.  When I was growing up in the 60s, my father used to say that folksingers were the conscience of this nation.  I figured: we all better be the conscience of our nation, and we all sing along on these songs, so in 1973 I wrote "Woody's Children" : "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."  For Woody's 100th birthday, I assembled an all-star, we-are-the-folk-world recording of the song.  When you download, you'll hear (in alphabetical order) Aztec Two-Step, Buskin & Batteau, Tom Chapin, Catie Curtis, Jeff Daniels (yes, the actor), Guy Davis, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, Christine Lavin, Tom Paxton and Peter Yarrow joining me.  I couldn't be prouder.   But don't just listen -- join us! Go to Video and send us a video of you singing along.  I know there are millions of you Woody's Children out there.  Let's sing it together...
