Lucy Kaplansky Sings ‘This Morning I Am Born Again’

Singer Lucy Kaplansky just released a video cover of Woody Guthrie‘s song “This Morning I Am Born Again.” If you’ve never heard the song before, the lyrics are all about how he’s “born again” without any sense of religion:

This morning I was born again and a light shines on my land
I no longer look for heaven in your deathly distant land

This morning I was born again and a light shines on my soul

Beautiful song and a great rendition.

And it makes no sense, only makes you tense, to be pounding on his door.
So don’t go blaming God for your troubles anymore.
