It still amazes me to this day the amount of energy put into this song given that it’s recorded with only two men. I’ve heard four piece punk bands with less energy and soul as a guy with a guitar and a guy with  harmonica. As I seem to say a lot throughout these entries, there’s so much beauty in simplicity, this song is a perfect example. If you know 3 chords and have a voice, you already have all it takes to play just like Guthrie did, and that is why he is so important for musicians both beginner and advanced, he is a great equalizer.
