Is this land still made for you and me?

This Land Is Your Land, Woody Guthrie

From the CD AmericanaNeil Young & Crazy Horse

[Chorus:]

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 a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

[Chorus]

I’ve roamed and rambled and I’ve 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

[Chorus]

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

[Chorus]

As I went walkin’ – I saw a sign there
And on that sign said – no tresspassin’
But on the other side… it didn’t say nothin!
That side was made for you and me!

[Chorus]

In the shadow of the steeple – I saw my people
By the relief office – I seen my people
As they stood hungry – I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?
