Woody Guthrie

Woodrow Wilson "Woody" Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967) was an American singer-songwriter and folk musician whose musical legacy includes hundreds of political, traditional and children's songs, ballads and improvised works. He frequently performed with the slogan This Machine Kills Fascists displayed on his guitar. His best-known song is "This Land Is Your Land." Many of his recorded songs are archived in the Library of Congress.

 Struggling with 900 Miles? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

I am walkin' down this track
I've got tears in my eyes
I'm tryin' to read a letter from my home

An' if  this train runs me right 
I'll be home Saturday night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home
Lord I hate to hear 
That lonesome whistle blow

This train I ride on 
Is a hundred coaches long
Well, you can hear her whistle blow 
A million miles

An' if this train runs me right 
I'll see my woman on saturday night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home
Lord I hate to hear 
That lonesome whistle blow

I will pawn you my wagon
And I will pawn you my team
I will pawn you my watch and my chain

An' if  this train runs me right 
I'll be home Saturday night
'Cause I'm nine hundred miles from my home
Lord I hate to hear 
That lonesome whistle blow
That long lonesome train whistlin' down
