THIS TRAIN AIN’T BOUND for GLORY ANYMORE

I heard Woody Guthrie sing a song for everyone,

“This Land Was Made for You and Me”

he sang about a better world that was gonna come

and pastures of plenty always free


But a picture from life’s other side is all I ever see

hard travelin is how it’s gonna be

the gamblin man’s still rich, the working folks are poor

and this train ain’t bound for glory anymore

this train ain’t bound for glory anymore


The do-re-mi don’t trickle down like they said it would

Wall Street keeps on gettin more and more

with so many little homes for sale in our neighborhood

this train ain’t bound for glory anymore

this train ain’t bound for glory anymore


We’ve been stickin to the union, we’ve been stickin to our guns

but mister, we’ve been busted one by one

no bugle call for peace, just another dirty little war

and this train ain’t bound for glory anymore

this train ain’t bound for glory anymore


So I packed my bags to look for work somewhere down the road

kissed my wife at the railway station door

I heard the blind conductor call, “Everybody get on board

this train ain’t bound for glory anymore”

this train ain’t bound for glory anymore


And this land was made for you and me
