So I recently found out that I'm now related to Woody Guthrie by my mom marrying my now step-dad. Which, of course, is pretty feakin' cool. So my step-dad lent some of Woody's records and this song came up. And at first, I was thinking back to how in every elementry school I was in they always made us sing this. But after the 3rd verse of the song, I started hearing verses that I never heard before. And it was those last 3 verses that I started to feel moved and I realized how much of a political song this was. And as a punk rocker, I just had to tab it. So here it is. And when you have made your final judgement on the song, please rate and/or leave a comment. I don't want to feel like I did this for nothing. Standard Tuning Chorus: G D This land is your land, this land is my land A D From California to the New York Island G D From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters A D This land was made for you and me. Verse 1: G D As I went walking that ribbon of highway A D I saw above me that endless skyway G D I saw below me that golden valley A D This land was made for you and me. Repeat Chorus Verse 2: G D I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps A D To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts G D While all around me a voice was sounding A D This land was made for you and me. Repeat Chorus Verse 3: G D When the sun came shining, and I was strolling A D And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling G D A voice was chanting, As the fog was lifting, A D This land was made for you and me. Repeat Chorus Verse 4: G D As I went walking I saw a sign there A D And on the sign it said "No Trespassing." G D But on the other side it didn't say nothing, A D That side was made for you and me. Repeat Chorus Verse 5: G D In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple; A D By the relief office, I'd seen my people. G D As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking, A D Is this land made for you and me? Repeat Chorus Verse 6: G D Nobody living can ever stop me, A D As I go walking that freedom highway; G D Nobody living can make me turn back A D This land was made for you and me. Repeat Chorus 2x And that should be that for This Land Is My Land by Woody Guthrie. A song that is still true today as it was over 50 years ago. So when you've made your final judgemnet on the song, please rate and/or leave a comment. Also, be sure to check out my other tabs as well. -I hope you enjoy; my little droogies.
