"This Land is Your Land" is one of the United States' most famous folk songs. Its lyrics were written by American folk singer, Woody Guthrie in 1940 based on an existing melody, in critical response to Irving Berlin's "God Bless America". When Guthrie was tired of hearing Kate Smith sing it on the radio in the late 1930s he sarcastically wrote "God Blessed America for Me" before renaming it "This Land Is Your Land". The song was recorded in 1944 and published in 1945.

Lyrics Edit

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
