Default Deportee

I was watching "Bound for Glory" yesterday, and I've since been trying to find "Deportee" being sung by Woody on Youtube. However, all the ones that came up were actually Arlo. Does anyone know of an internet version of the original? I'm not even sure if he recorded it.

Thanks.

I don't believe Woody ever recorded Deportees. He wrote the lyrics in 1948. Sometime later in the mid 50's a school teacher named Martin Hoffman wrote the melody. Woody heard the song sung by Pete Seeger at a concert in the late 50's, well after his last recording sessions.

Excellent, thanks.

Him singing that song while in California is anachonistic.

I emailed you a copy of my Deportee in PDF form

Maybe the Orig was Pete Seeger

Yes. What does "anachonistic" mean? My spell checker either didn't catch it or I missed it.
