Beach Haven Ain't My Home

On NPR this afternoon.

Woody Guthrie rented a flat from Donald Trump's father. Old man Trump was such a racist that Guthrie penned a song about him and Beach Haven. Supposedly it was never recorded but was written down.

How great would it be for this to be Bernie's theme song for the presidential race??

Seems this is well-known, but new to me. Among other sources:

"I suppose
Old Man Trump knows
Just how much
Racial Hate
he stirred up
In the bloodpot of human hearts
When he drawed
That color line
Here at his
Eighteen hundred family project ."
