This Land Is Your Land, This Land is My Land

 

Happy birthday America! We love the lyrics to Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land”.  So cheers to all of you Tomatoes “From California to the New York Island from the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters, this land was made for you and me.”  The song has been song by dozens of performers. We’ve posted three videos versions – Mr. Guthrie’s of course, a version by Bruce Springsteen, and most recently Lady Gaga’s brilliant version that was a melody of patriotic songs she sang during this year’s Super Bowl.  Enjoy your 4th!

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

And I went walking that ribbon of highway
And saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me the golden valley
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

There 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

 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

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

Songwriters: Woody Guthrie
