Kierra Thompson's insight:

This is one Guthrie's most famous songs. Til this day we still sing this song. Woody made it during the 1940's. Some people say he wrote the song because he was tired of hearing "God Bless America."He knew much about what he was writing, because by htis time he had traveled almost every where. Woody had been through a lot like the Dust Bowl, racisim and blue collar working boys.

Kierra Thompson's insight:

From this I learned Woody got famous from traveling and singing songs. The dust storms were a big impact on his life. Also I learned that he wasn’t only a musician but also an writer. He would paint pictures for money and somewhere to sleep while he was moving. Plus he was in a band.
