Do The Evolution

A Change Is Gonna Come

This Land Is Your Land

Stemming from its longtime subversion by schools, summer camps, government entities, and various media, “This Land Is My Land” is regarded by most Americans as an uplifting, patriotic folk song. However, Woody Guthrie penned the lyrics in 1940 to parody and protest Irving Berlin’s mawkish standard “God Bless America.”

The original version contains verses addressing private property and hunger, but those social justice sentiments were sanitized when Guthrie recorded the tune in 1944 (the alternate, unreleased version above contains verse 4 below).

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 was walking 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

I’ve roamed and rambled and I 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

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
Sign was painted, it said ‘private property’
But on the backside, it didn’t say nothing
This land was made for you and me

When the sun came shining, and I was strolling
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
A voice was chanting as the fog was lifting
This land was made for you and me

In the squares of the city, in the shadow of a steeple
By the relief office, I’d seen my people
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking that freedom highway
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me

Mercy Mercy Me
