This song was written by Lum Wilson “Bill” Jackson and the original recording was made at the Arvin FSA camp in 1940. The melody is taken from the old folk song, “Root Hog or Die.”

  1. I just want to thank you for making all this good work available. I’m in California trying to find some way to make music change hearts here in the Central Valley, our breadbasket. Came to this site for How Can You Keep On Moving, and loved Sis Cunningham’s version. Thank you, thank you again.

    • You are very welcome. I’m happy that you are working on such a worthwhile project. Good luck and let me know if there is anything I can do to help. t
