Woody Guthrie – Pastures Of Plenty chords
The key is in "D", but the few tricks he plays are in "C." The only real embellishment a hammer-on the d string. Below Guthrie's version are the chords it is most often played to. Capo: 2nd FretCIt's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoedMy poor feet have traveled a hot dusty road Out of your Dust Bowl and Westward we rolled And your deserts were hot and your mountains were cold I worked in your orchards of peaches and prunes I slept on the ground in the light of the moon On the edge of the city you'll see us and then We come with the dust and we go with the wind California, Arizona, I harvest your crops Well its North up to Oregon to gather your hops Dig the beets from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine To set on your table your light sparkling wine Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground From the Grand Coulee Dam where the waters run down Every state in the Union us migrants have beenG CWe'll work in this fight and we'll fight till we winIt's always we rambled, that river and I All along your green valley, I will work till I die My land I'll defend with my life if need beGCause my pastures of plenty must always be free-------------------------------------- A nice idea here is to add a simple bass part: C /B Am /! CC AmIt's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoedC AmMy poor feet have traveled a hot dusty roadC AmOut of your Dust Bowl and Westward we rolledC AmAnd your deserts were hot and your mountains were cold
