“The Debt I Owe,” by Woody Guthrie

I’ve been playing a slightly reworked version of this unrecorded Woody song for various StrikeDebt events, most recently the People’s Bailout telethon as part of the Rolling Jubilee.

Earlier today I played it to convoke the “Winter Jubilee,” an SD open house event including readings, speeches, magic, and a debtor’s version of Rapunzel.

Here’s a recording.

Another interesting project out of the StrikeDebt group of OWS: Rolling Jubilee.  

From the website:

Rolling Jubilee is a bailout of the people by the people. With your help we buy defaulted personal debt for pennies on the dollar.
Instead of collecting it, we abolish it.

The Jubilee begins November 15.
