I Ain't Got No Home ~ Woodie Guthrie

This good song is new to me, but I sure like it. I can only keep about 60 songs in my head. If I add this one, it will likely be a SIP, a song in progress. I think I will try to add it. Bad thing, is that some other song will fall out of my head!

I hope you enjoy my current take on the song.

The Guitar: I like this guitar a lot. I am an old guy with limited memory. I think Chris Lyons gifted me the nice Anton Bock cigar box. At some point, I gifted the build to Slide On Steve. He improved it with one of his wonderful home made straps and put red felt cloth inside the side sound holes. Then he put a little home made plaque on the back that says, "KEEPER". Then he sent it back to me and it IS A Keeper.

Tuned DGB.

Thanks, Rich.  I am trying to get a good learn on it. 

Thanks, Danny.   I gave two gits away last weekend.  Not this one.  As the sign on the back says, it it is a keeper.

Thank you, Wes. 

Thanks, Andries.  I do hope to get Linda to do a song with me again.

Thanks, Steve. 

Thanks Clarky.   Yes, that was acoustic.
