My Name is New York free pdf Woody Guthrie is acknowledged and lauded the world over for inspiring the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Joe Strummer. Originally from Oklahoma, he was a real musician playing music for the everyman, but if it wasn't for New York City he might not have given us his masterpiece 'This Land Is Your Land' among others. For the first time the city that Woody called home is brought to life in historical photographs, documents and previously unpublished lyrics. Like a scrapbook, it gathers all that helped make him the legend we celebrate today and the city in which it happened.
