Woody Guthrie “This Land is Your Land” (rec. 1944) • Response to Berlin’s “God Bless America” • Music adapted from Carter Family song 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. …. There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me. The sign was painted, said “private property,” But on the back side… it didn't say nothin’. This land was made for you and me.
