Thwarted - don't need to go overseas... imagine what Joe Hill or Woodie Guthrie thought about oppression and class struggle?

Oh, wait...


Was a high wall there that tried to stop me
A sign was painted said: Private Property,
But on the back side it didn't say nothing —
God blessed America for me.
[This land was made for you and me.]

As they stood hungry, I stood there wondering if
God blessed America for me.
[This land was made for you and me.]
