This Land Is Your Land
Woody Guthrie Lyrics


This land is your land, and this land is my land
From the 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
I saw above me that endless skyway
Saw below me the golden valley
This land was made for you and me

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

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

This land is your land, and 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

When the sun come shining, then I was strolling
And the wheat fields waving, the dust clouds rolling
The voice come a-chanting and the fog was lifting
This land was 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 back
This land was made for you and me.

In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?"

That verse was included on this exact video a few years back but has since been censored. It was done in such a lazy manner that there is a minute of dead air on here. So much for free speech.

Just wanted to share some unofficial verses popular among the homeless in the good old US of A

As I went walking that endless bread line
My landlord gave me a 2-week deadline
And Labor Action ran a better headline:
“This land was made for you and me!”

This land is their land, it isn’t our land
From the plush apartments to the Cadillac car land
From the Wall Street office to the Hollywood star land
This land is not for you or me

So take your slogan and kindly stow it
If this was our land, you’d never know it
So let’s get together and overthrow it
‘Cause this land was made for you and me

And then in the middle:

As I went walking, I saw a signpost
And the sign said “No Trespassing!”
But on the backside, it didn’t say nuthin
‘Cause that side was made for you and me



The Modern Hermeticist

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

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

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
Sign was painted, it said private property
But on the back side it didn't say nothing
That side 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 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

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?

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

This song represents true American patriotism. True patriots care for their fellow countrymen. Greed wrapped in hate is NOT patriotism

​@King Fresh27 Communists weren't really our "allies", We just shared a common enemy in a war, that's all. Then they became our enemy.

This preceded "Fortunate Son" and "Born in the USA" as the song most co-opted by people who had no idea what it meant.

@R. _1 i recommend Canada more, they are somewhat more accepting of immigrants and they have better healthcare and education
