  •  Hard rock minin' (7+ / 0-)

    Woody didn't ignore it.  He lived life with regular people and sang about it:

    I've been hittin' some hard-rock minin', I thought you knowed
    I've been leanin' on a pressure drill, way down the road
    Hammer flyin', air-hose suckin', six foot of mud and I shore been a muckin'
    And I've been hittin' some hard travelin', lord

    I've been hittin' some hard harvestin', I thought you knowed
    North Dakota to Kansas City, way down the road
    Cuttin' that wheat, stackin' that hay, and I'm tryin' make about a dollar a day
    And I've been havin' some hard travelin', lord

    I've been working that Pittsburgh steel, I thought you knowed
    I've been a dumpin' that red-hot slag, way down the road
    I've been a blasting, I've been a firin', I've been a pourin' red-hot iron
    I've been hittin' some hard travelin', lord

    I've been layin' in a hard-rock jail, I thought you knowed
    I've been a laying out 90 days, way down the road
    Damned old judge, he said to me, "It's 90 days for vagrancy."
    And I've been hittin' some hard travelin', lord
