                        By:  Todd Snider

Opening acoustic guitar riff: ho=hammer-on; po=Pull-off; string is given as
letter (i.e. E, A, D, etc.); number is the fret. Let's see if I can do this.

|---Dmaj position----|-----Cmaj position-----|Dmaj==>and repeat
| hoG2 D hoG2 hoD3 G | G2 hoA3 hoD2 hopoD2 A3| G

What you're realy doing is :
Hammering on a Dmaj position, changing to a Cmaj position, and doing the
pulloffs from those positions. The third note from the end, I'm showing
as a hammer-on-pull-off is just and open D string note with a quick finger
down and up on the 2nd fret, and immediate return to Dmaj (open G string
is the first note in the chord).

When performing this tune on an acoustic guitar, you use the Dmaj position
part of the above riff, and then pick the top three strings (A,D,G), hammer-
on the 2nd fret D string of the Cmaj, then go to Gmaj and do the same hammer-
on on the 2nd fret A string of the Gmaj, as you sing the verse lines.

Dmaj
Freeway through a reservation,
Cmaj           Gmaj
Make way for a brand new nation,
Dmaj
Big ideas, we got brand new plans,
Cmaj            Gmaj
Heaven knows we need this land,
Dmaj
We're gonna build big, high and wide
Cmaj                 Gmaj
City streets through countrysides,
Dmaj
Chemicals, and pesticides.
Cmaj             Gmaj C C C G
This land is our land.

Hey, redman don't waste our time,
We're young and strong, we got hills to climb,
There's a lot of room but we need it all
For slave trade and shopping malls,
Gonna build big factories with paper plates and plastic trees
Styrofoam and antifreeze.
This land is our land.

Chorus:
G            D          F  C  G
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land.

Well we came out of a ragin' sea,
To claim someplace whre we'd be free,
We got hopeful hearts, workin hands and
Heaven knows we need this land
Cause the world needs land fills, diet pills and papermills
We need country clubs and oil spills.
This land is our land.

Chorus:
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land.

Freeway through a reservation,
Make way for a brand new nation,
Big ideas, we got brand new plans,
Heaven knows we need this land for super bowls,
Subway rides, remote controls, and pesticides.
Gang related homicides.
This land is our land.

This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
Our land
Our land

This land is our land,
This land is our land.
