    Primarily for foreign customers - (foreign shipping cost is considerably less without the jewel case. US shipping is the same as with jewel case). Included are the disk, booklet and traycard to fit a standard jewel case.

    (If you are in the US, you can order this if you don't want the jewel case, but you don't save on shipping in the US; it's not easy to take apart or put together a jewel case.)

    If you are a foreign customer and want the CD in a jewel case we suggest ordering "Weather Reports" from CDBaby.com; they charge less for foreign shipping with jewel case.

about

“Mating politics with folk music is a tradition Woody Guthrie excelled in; it’s not an easy path in the music business, and we admire those like Utah Phillips and Tom Paxton who have walked in Woody Guthrie’s shoes. -Al

WOODY GUTHRIE’S SHOES, by Jim Schulz ©2010 (Sourdough Road Music-BMI)

V1:
A A E E
Them’s Woody Guthrie shoes, ain’t got no time to lose
F#m F#m A E
Tell me now, why did you choose to shoulder that load
A A E E
Holy soles and and worn out laces, Mother Mary’s Seven Graces
F#m F#m A A
Deal the cards and hope for aces, and
A E A A
Son, grab your kit and hit the road

Ch:
D D A A
Let it rock. Let it roll
E E A A
Hear the sirens. Pay the toll
D D [A D] A
Let the people feed your soul
A E A A
Let it rock. Let it roll

V2:
Got a shirt without a collar, flannel vest and silver dollar
Take the stage and never holler at the
cross you must bear
In Woody Guthrie shoes, broken beat up and abused
Walk the line, sing the blues And
son, hang your head and say a prayer

Ch2:
Let it rock. Let it roll
Hear the sirens. Pay the toll
Let the people feed your soul
Let it rock. Let it roll

V3:
In Idaho, there’s hallowed ground, Hemingway and Ezra Pound
Keep the faith that you have found with
words woven wild
Gibson guitar in your hand, Woody’s shadow where you stand
This land will surely be your land, so
sing, sing my prodigal child

Ch3:
Let it rock. Let it roll.
Hear the sirens. Pay the toll.
Let the people feed your soul.
Let it rock. Let it roll.

Ch4:
Let it rock. Let it roll. Hear the sirens. Pay the toll.
Let the people keep you whole
Let it rock Let it roll Let it rock Let it roll

Them Woody Guthrie Shoes ain’t got no time to lose
Deal the cards and hope for aces and
Son, grab your kit and hit the road.
