This Land is Your Land

by Woody Guthrie



D                G                                 D

This land is your land, this land is my land,

                 A7                                D

From California to the New York Island,

                                 G                                                      D

From the Redwood Forests to the Gulf Stream waters;

A7                                               D

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.
