When asked to contribute a recording for a tribute album for Guthrie (and Leadbelly), Bruce provided not one but two: "Vigilante Man," and "I Ain’t Got No Home." Bruce recorded " I Ain’t Got No Home" in his home studio, in a quiet, vulnerable arrangement that features just him, Roy, and Nils. Bruce changed the lyrics, making the song both more modern and more inclusive. Both songs were released in August 1988 on the album Folkways: A Vision Shared.
Bruce also contributed a live performance to the album’s companion documentary film. That performance
was recorded at a Madison Square Garden soundcheck on May 19, 1988).
