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)

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


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

2. Ah, thank you KoKo - a treasured memory! But don't forget the 'private property':

Instead of the usual verse:

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!


...he sang:

A great high wall there, tried to stop me
A great big sign there, said 'private property'
But on the other side, it didnt say nothing
That side was made for you and me.


...which brought a smile to everyone's faces (and led to Freeper heads exploding :rofl:)

I was blessed to be there, and that was my highlight - magical.

Thanks again for bringing it back :toast:

3. RECAPTURE THE HOPE! "We ARE THE ONES...We've been WAITING FOR!"
Keep the HOPE! So many voices...CAN HE HEAR US? Does he WANT THE ONES's HE WAS WAITING FOR?

Let's join hands in a circle and VOW...."HE CAN HEAR US!"
