Woody Guthrie - This Land is Your Land

lyrics

Chorus:
This land is your land - This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This 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.
Chorus

I've roamed and rambled, and I 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

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.
Chorus

As I went walking, I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said, "No Trespassing."
But on the other side, it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.
Chorus

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 asking
Is this land made for you and me?
Chorus

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back;
This land was made for you and me.
Chorus

-- Peaceful Uprising's Additional Lyrics --

We see Gulf oil spilled, we see the trees killed,
We see the flares on, the oil and gas fields,
Back hoes are gutting, our coal-filled mountains,
There’ll be no land left for you and me.
Chorus
