This Land Is Your LandWoodie GuthrieThis land is your land This land is my landFrom California to the New York island;From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream watersThis land was made for you and Me.As I was walking that ribbon of highway,I saw above me that endless skyway:I saw below me that golden valley:This land was made for you and me.Ive roamed and rambled and I followed my footstepsTo the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;And all around me a voice was sounding:This land was made for you and me.When the sun came shining, and I was strolling,And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting:This land was made for you and me.As I went walking I saw a sign thereAnd on the sign it said "No Trespassing."But on the other side it didnt say nothing,That side was made for you and me.In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,By the relief office I seen my people;As they stood there hungry, I stood there askingIs this land made for you and me?Nobody living can ever stop me,As I go walking that freedom highway;Nobody living can ever make me turn backThis land was made for you and me.
