Woody Guthrie wrote this around 1939

"This song is Copyrighted in U.S., under Seal of Copyright # 154085, for a period of 28 years,
and anybody caught singin it without our permission, will be mighty good friends of ourn, cause we
don't give a dern. Publish it. Write it. Sing it. Swing to it. Yodel it. We wrote it, that's
all we wanted to do."

Can anyone please tell me which song this attends?

Does this mean we can download Woody forever? I wonder what he would say about recording it today? Also, Pete talked about some verses to This Land is Your Land that he wouldn't like to hear.
