We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I first heard that song when Bok, Muir, and Trickett did it; I'm not sure I've heard better. But I confess, I have since come to be annoyed by Pete Seeger's modification of the original hymn...It is a perfectly good verse, as an addition, but not as a complete modification.
