In Pete Seeger's Introduction to Acres of Clams, he states that he and Woody Guthrie once improvised verses to it, including the verse:

They asked, "would I fight for my country?"
I answered the FBI yea.
I will point a gun for my country,
But I won't guarantee you which way.

Are there any records of the other verses composed at this time?
