This Land is Your Land

(cho­rus)
This land is your land, this land is my land
From the coast of Corn­wall to the Scot­tish High­lands
From the sacred forests, to the holy islands
This land was made for you and me

1. As I was walk­ing along the High Street
The traf­fic rag­ing, rag­ing all around me
I closed my eyes and dreamed how it could be
This land was made for you and me.

2. So I am going, no one can stop me
Where the wild flow­ers grow­ing, clean rivers flow­ing
Fresh winds are blow­ing, and the tall trees whis­per­ing
This land was made for you and me.

3. I saw a sign there, when I was walk­ing
And on the sign it said ‘No Tres­pass­ing‘
But on the oth­er side, it did say noth­ing
This sign was made for you and me.

4. As the clouds went rolling, and the church bells ring­ing
I heard the songs that the birds were singing
As night came falling, they went on call­ing
This land was made for you and me.

5. From the teem­ing city, I made my escape
To find my place in the mys­tic land­scape
I’m not the first here, nor am I the last here
This land was made for you and me.
