This Land Is Your Land

Written by Woody Guthrie. Copyright © 1956 TRO-Ludlow, BMI.

This land is your land
This land is my land
From California
To the New York island
From the redwood forests
To the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking
That ribbon of highway
I looked above me
There in the skyway
I saw below me
The golden valley
This land was made for you and me

I roamed and rambled
I followed my footsteps
O’er the sparkling sands of
Her diamond deserts
And all around me
A voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

The sun was shining
And I was strolling
Through 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

This land is your land
This land is my land
From California
To the New York island
From the redwood forests
To the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me
