"Mister Trump made a tramp out of me"

American folk music singer Woody Guthrie (Al Aumuller/Library of Congress)
Stricken with Huntington's Chorea, progressive folk songster, Woody Guthrie, wrote against his landlord, a certain Mister Trump...

    Humm humm, Trump, you made a tramp out of me;
    Hummm, humm, Trump, you made a tramp out of me;
    You robbed my wife and robbed my kids,
    Made me stay drunk and to hit the skids;
    Yepsir, Trump, you made a tramp out of me...
