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 walkin', I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said no trespassing
But on the other side, it didn't say nothin'
That side was made for you and me

In the shadow of the steeple, I saw my people
By the relief office, I see my people
As they stood hungry, I stood there askin'
Is this land made for you and me?

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

Nobody livin' can ever stop me
As I go walkin' that freedom highway
No one livin' can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me

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 walkin', I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said no trespassing
But on the other side, it didn't say nothin'
That side was made for you and me

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

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
