Pastures of Plenty

The Asch Recordings Vol. 1 (1944)



Describing the travails and dignity of migrant workers in North America, it is evocative of the world described in John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath. The tune is based on the ballad "Pretty Polly," a traditional English-language folk song from the British Isles that was also well known in the Appalachian region of North America.

Recorded by Pete Seeger, Harry Belafonte, Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Jesse Colin Young, Peter Tevis, Peter, Paul and Mary, Dave Van Ronk, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Flatt and Scruggs, Will Geer, Kingston Trio, Country Joe McDonald, Odetta, The Alarm, Solas, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Paul Kelly, Lila Downs, Cisco Houston, Karl Denver, Scott H. Biram, The Travellers, Judy Collins, Jefferson Starship


Il pezzo fu arrangiato da Ennio Morricone e cantato da Peter Tevis per il film "Per un pugno di dollari" di Sergio Leone. (Ma Si veda qui questa osservazione di Cristian Veronesi)
It's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoed
