4. Well...
It's better than 100 "Reagan is dead, yay! / Reagan is dead, why are you saying 'yay?'" threads.

6. I'm sure Walt is just ticked off about the song
and not you personally BillyD. :-)

BTW, if you donate to DU you can use the search feature to find out if a subject has already been talked about.

7. Walt, do what I do.
Multiple threads of this?

Every time I see one, on this or any forum, I bother to print the lyrics to the song, by the wonderful Woody Guthrie, and then encourage you all to buy an album or tickets to a show if you can from his son Arlo, who is the shit!

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

1956 (renewed 1984), 1958 (renewed 1986) and 1970 TRO-Ludlow Music, Inc. (BMI)
