Pete and Woody Guthrie play music together (picture on mid-left)

“He taught me how to hitchhike and how to ride freight trains. Because you don't get on a freight when it's in the station, the railroad bulls will kick you off. You go about 100 yards or maybe 200 yards outside, the train is just picking up speed and you can trot alongside it, and you throw your banjo in an empty car and then you throw yourself in the empty car. And you then go 200 or 300 miles before you stop, so it's a lot more convenient than hitchhiking. And in six months I saw the country like I never would have seen it otherwise. I saw it from the workers' side up. …”
