Candyman(inactive) Woody Guthrie songbook (26) RE: Woody Guthrie songbook 05 Jul 03


I suppose the easiest place to get lyrics and chords for Woody Guthrie songs is the "Rise Up Singing" songbook. It has 22 Woody Guthrie songs.

A more complete source is the "Woody Guthrie Songbook" edited by Nora Guthrie (Woody's daughter, Arlo's sister) and Judy Bell. It is available from the on-line catalogue at www.woodyguthrie.org.

It sells for $15.00 and there are 48 songs included:
