Relive the exciting times of the modern American folk movement as told by Tom Paxton in this unique blend of narrative, song, photos and memorabilia. From his early days in Oklahoma through the burgeoning folk scene in 1960s Greenwich Village, and up to the present day, Paxton has written an astonishing variety of songs that speak straight to the heart and reflect the changing times, while maintaining a distinctive American folk flavor.
The 89 songs presented in this book include such standards as "The Marvelous Toy," "My Dog's Bigger Than Your Dog," "My Ramblin' Boy" and "The Last Thing On My Mind," as well as songs of protest, love, humor and, especially dear to Tom, songs for children.
All songs are arranged for guitar and vocals with all lyrics included. No history of folk music is complete without the contributions of this great American artist.
