The mid 50s and early 60s saw an incredible rise in the commercial
popularity of folk music. It was inevitable that the revival should produce songwriters of its own and this group has been dubbed Woody's children. Like Woody they are concerned with getting a message across and do not care to pull punches. They come from different parts of the country but most live now in New York. Bob Dylan is undoubtedly the most spectacular of Woody's children. Here he pays tribute to his idol. Class is from my home. The men of gone down. Now see things. Their proper presents and Prince.

burning your arms around. Me as well cowboy. Well then I'd back you know the answer right there one less better. There were a few women among Woody's children one of the most outstanding is a creepy Indian girl Buffy Sainte-Marie.

One of these in. Washington signed a lady. Call me. But it's not. Hello. Damn I. Know that the money is gone. Eric Anderson like Woody has written of the land and the people. Here is
Eric with a broadside singers singing the plains of Nebraska. RATHER And that's where I think you ought to go. Where they go on the stands high school with great legends about you. In school I learned. But not of the. Land is drunk. Farmers. In. The plowed fields without sleep.
