Here’s a video of Ted Leo performing the song “I Guess I Planted” and I’m not quite sure who to credit that song to, actually… It’s performed here by Ted Leo. It was performed originally by Billy Bragg & Wilco for the album Mermaid Avenue and all of the songs on that album come from previously unused lyrics written by
one of the most legendary American folk singer s, Woodie Guthrie.
If you’ve been following current events in Wisconsin, I strongly encourage you to read over Mr. Leo’s statement regarding why he recorded this video over at his blog which you can find by clicking on the latter half of this sentence.
“…just look at the language of the history of the Labor Movement and what we call the ‘Labor Struggle,’ in which everything is described as a ‘fight,’ a ‘battle,’ a ‘STRUGGLE.’”
