  3. Woody Guthrie

  4. On the fourteenth day of April, of 1935,there struck the worst of dust storms that ever filled the sky.

  5. You could see that dust storm coming, the clouds looked deathlike black,and through our mighty nation, it left a dreadful track.

  6. From Oklahoma City, to the Arizona line,Dakota and Nebraska to the lazy Rio Grande

  7. It fell across our cities, like a curtain of black rolled down!We thought it was our judgment, we thought it was our doom!

  8. The radio reported, we listened with alarm,the wild and windy actions of this great mysterious storm.

  9. From Albuquerque and Clovis, and all New Mexico,they said it was the blackest that ever they had saw.

  10. From ol’ Dodge City, Kansas, the dust had rung their knell, and a few more comrades sleeping, on top of ol’ Boot Hill.

  11. From Denver, Colorado, they said it blew so strong,they thought that they could hold out, but they didn’t know how long!

  12. Our relatives were huddled, into their oil boom shacks,and the children they was cryin’ as it whistled through the cracks!

  13. And the family it was crowded, into their little room,they thought it was their judgment, they thought it was their doom.

  14. The storm took place at sundown, it lasted through the night.When we looked out next morning, we saw a terrible sight!

  15. We saw outside our window, where wheat-fields they had grown,was now a rippling ocean of dust the wind had blown.

  16. It covered up our fences, it covered up our barns.It covered up our tractors in this wild and dusty storm.

  17. We loaded our jalopies, and piled our families in.We rattled down that highway, to never come back again.

People, Places, and Environments (Early Grades): Social studies programs should include experiences that provide for the study of people, places and environments, so that the learner can: • examine the interaction of human beings and their physical environment, • the use of land, building of cities, and ecosystem changes in selected locales and regions; • observe and speculate about social and economic effects of environmental changes and crises resulting from phenomena such as floods, storms, and drought.
