@Rick360 : I was very interested to read your post about Malvina Reynolds. I hope you stick around because this forum could use some well-informed enthusiasts of folk, etc.
For other people like me who don´t know that Searchers´song you mentioned, I´m posting it here:-



@Gavin B : That´s a really nice quote from Pete Seeger; he was obviously a genuine egalitarian. I notice that he used the word jungle in the slang sense of campsite; I wonder if that slang is still current. To the best of my knowledge it never crossed the water to Britain, but then I´ve never hung out with hoboes so I wouldn´t know anyway.
