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

             F                       C
This land is your land, this land is my land 
         G                      C
From California to the New York Island
                 F                         C 
From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream waters
G                              C 
This land was made for you and me.

Verse 1: 
          F                      C
As I went walking that ribbon of highway
       G                    C
I saw above me that endless skyway
        F                  C  
I saw below me that golden valley
G                              C 
This land was made for you and me.

Repeat Chorus
Verse 2:

               F                         C
I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps
                 G                    C 
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
           F                    C 
While all around me a voice was sounding
G                              C 
This land was made for you and me.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3:

                  F                  C
When the sun came shining, and I was strolling
                     G                          C 
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
            F                        C 
A voice was chanting, As the fog was lifting,
G                              C 
This land was made for you and me.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4:

          F                    C
As I went walking I saw a sign there
                   G            C 
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
           F                        C 
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
G                              C 
That side was made for you and me.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 5:

                      F                        C
In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
              G                   C 
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
                    F                     C 
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
G                             C 
Is this land made for you and me?

Repeat Chorus

Verse 6:

       F                    C
Nobody living can ever stop me,
        G                    C 
As I go walking that freedom highway;
       F          C
Nobody living can make me turn back
G                              C 
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.

Hey just wanted to comment that I had a similar experience. I was taught this in elementary school as a charming patriotic song, and now I find out it's really an awesome revolutionary one, and I owe it to your great tab! Thanks man!

Thank you so much for this great tab and the personal connection. I teach four sections (112 students) of a high school music performance/humanities class and will be using the entire song with my students.
Your work is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
