Okay, Pete Seeger may just be cooler than Obama. Maybe cooler than Dylan.

My favorite verse, which I don’t think I’ve ever heard before, begins “In the squares of the city,” a little over two minutes in. The dig at private property that follows ain’t bad either.

(via EOTAW, via Unfogged.)

UPDATE: I’m leaving the first video link to memorialize the irony TMK pointed out in comments — that HBO was lame enough to force YouTube to take down a song decrying private property in the name of a better America. Zoiks.
