This land is your land, This land is my land,
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters;
This land was made for you and Me.

  • This is the original. What a great contribution to the treasury of great songs! The reason he wrote this tune is inspiring. I definitely don't mind Irving Berlin's song, though. This song is rather legendary though. It was picked up by so many even before it was officially recorded.
  • There was a high wall there that tried to stop me, a sign was painted said "Private Property"....
  • Never Gets old
  • Never heard this version - I like it
  • this hand is my hand this hand is your hand oh wait that's my hand...
  • My favorite song

  • This isn't Woody Guthrie singing it, at all. I don't mind the cover but annoyingly mislabelled.
  • Land belongs to no person, in reality. It is land, sooner or later it rises , or falls, or erodes away. People delude themselves re owning land............. in the long term it belongs to nature
  • woody guthrie was a communist....what's with all the tea party bullshit?
