Is Woody Guthrie a country musician?
I’d say, yes, though feel free to disagree. 
I’d follow that oaky Okie sepia voice
anywhere, even through the Dust Bowl,
like the Joads.

While the what-we-have-now knit itself
together, Woody was the seer
singer-songwriter of the 20th century.
I imagine him in Country Music Heaven,
shaking his head about how much is the same
& about everything that has irrevocable,
thankfully changed.
