What if Thoreau Live Blogged the Super Bowl, 10

Bruce and Pete seeger sang the verses that people never sing--the most Thoreauvian verses, if you think in terms of Thoreau's interest in what a community might have in common--when he accompanied Pete Seeger at the President Obama's Inaugural Ball:

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me;
Sign was painted, it said private property;
But on the back side it didn't say nothing;
That side was made for you and me.

In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

Meanwhile, Bruce!
