( 1912–1967), US folk singer and songwriter; full name Woodrow Wilson Guthrie. Social injustice and the hardships of the Depression inspired many of his songs, including "This Land Is Your Land" (1940) and "Deportee" (1948). His son Arlo (1947-), also a folk singer and songwriter, is best known for his talking blues song "Alice’s Restaurant Massacree" (1967).
