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 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 and followed my footsteps
Through the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me this voice kept saying
This land was made for you and me

As the sun was shining and I was strolling
Through the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
I could feel inside me and see all around me
This land was made for you and me


Bruce's version of this song helped to revert it back to its roots as a message of solidarity and protest by the disenfranchised in the early part of this century.
