Little Boxes

This was one of my FAVORITE songs as a little, little girl. Yes, my mom indoctrinated all us kids as good little leftists with lots of Pete Seeger. THANK GOD!!!!! Watched him on TV, had tapes and records. Did get to see him once in person when I was in middle school, at a (left-leaning) folk fest in Lawrence. I also remember doing a big portage on a camping trip when I was a teenager, 2-3 miles, and singing this over and over to keep myself company. One of my favorite albums of all time is his God Bless the Grass.
