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 WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME (Woody Guthrie) Woody Guthrie - 1940 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 went walking that ribbon of highway And saw above me that endless skyway, And saw below me the golden valley, I said: This land was made for you and me. I roamed and rambled and 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. Was a high wall there that tried to stop me A sign was painted said: Private Property, But on the back side it didn't say nothing, This land was made for you and me. When the sun come shining, then I was strolling In wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling; The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting: This land was made for you and me. One bright sunny morning in the shadow of the steeple By the Relief Office I saw my people, As they stood hungry, I stood there wondering if This land was made for you and me. ***** THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND Canadian Version This land is your land, this land is my land From snow capped mountains to Prince Edward Island From the BC forests to the seaway waters This land was made for you and me As I went walking that ribbon of highway And saw above me that endless skyway And saw below me the golden valley, I said: This land was made for you and me When the sun came shining, then I was strolling In wheat fields waving, and dust clouds rolling The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting This land was made for you and me In the squares of the city by the shadow of the steeple Near the relief office I saw my people And some were stumbling and some were wondering if This land was made for you and me. I can see your mailbox, I can see your doorstep I can feel my wind rock your tip-top treetop All around your house there my sunbeam whispers This land is made for you and me. Was a big high wall there that tried to stop me A sign was painted said: Private Property But on the back side it didn't say nothing This land was made for you and me Nobody living can ever stop me As I go walking my freedom highway Nobody living can make me turn back This land was made for you and me.
