Folk hero and longtime social and environmental activist, Pete Seeger, hasn't hung up the protest banjo yet. At a rally in support of a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in New York State, the 91-year-old Seeger busted out his trademark banjo to sing a song he composed about hydraulic fracturing, reportedly featuring the line, “And when 'drill baby drill' turns to 'spill baby spill,' God’s counting on me - God's counting on you.”
Unfortunately, video of the new song appears unavailable a this time (you can hear a few bars of it in this public radio station piece) but Seeger did work his way through a few rounds of the Woodie Guthrie classic American singalong, "This land is your land," to which he adds in the middle, "This song has many verses, you can sing them when you get home." Watch it:
