This Land Is Your Land

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
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for you and me.

I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
While all around me a voice was sounding
Saying this land 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
A voice was chanting, As the fog was lifting,
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 Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and me.

  1. Jingle,

    Yes, this has been a long-time favorite of mine also….. The people who first helped to settle this land had dreams and hopes for a good future for their families….. They worked very hard in the fields and at jobs in the cities to make a home that would be good for all.

    My hope is that the people of today would appreciate this heritage and continue to work hard to keep this a good place for all, so that everyone can enjoy the blessings of good, honest work…..

    This country will only remain a good place to live as long as the people here have good hearts and life styles.
