Our true national anthem

By the great Woody Guthrie, sung here by his son Arlo and by the indomitable Pete Seeger with his fine banjo.

I'm ready to retire that clunky old thing for this, a national anthem everyone can sing, less bombastic and more affectionate.

But not the seventies fashion sense.

This song can bring tears and a lump in your throat...I know because I watched a whole school auditorium do just that singing this song. It would make a great national anthem!
