This Land is Your Land

This song, written by Woody Guthrie in 1940, has become one of the most beloved American folk songs.  It speaks to the breadth and grandeur of the American landscape, as well as to the belief that it belongs to all of citizens regardless of their wealth or status.  From Red's award-winning Favorite Sing Along Songs CD

This Land is Your Land

Chorus
This land is you 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 was walkin' 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

Chorus

I roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of your diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me
