Singer/songwriter Sharon Benson shares her new "Water Not Weapons" song with crew of the Sloop Clearwater at a New York State Hudson River dock in Beacon, New York. Sharon is accompanied by Ira McIntosh of the Beacon Sloop Club. Sharon was inspired to write the song "Water Not Weapons" when Pete Seeger told her that "For humanity to survive, we need water more than we need weapons." The guitar in this video was used by actor David Carradine when he starred as Woodie Guthrie in the film "Bound for Glory." The Beacon Sloop Club owns the Sloop Woodie Guthrie that is available to the public for free sailing trips on the Hudson River. Arlo Guthrie is known for doing occasional concerts in the area to help raise funds to maintain the sloop named after his father.
