This Land Is Your Land 1

4 Nov 1961
cd imgTHE BOOTLEG SERIES Vol. 7 NO DIRECTION HOME

  Live, Carnegie Chapter Hall, NYC - 4.nov.1961  

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

This land is your land and 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.

I roamed and rambled an' i followed my footsteps
To the sunny bright sands of your diamond deserts
And all around me a voice came singin'
Singin', "This land was made for you and me."

This land is your land and 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.

It was early one mornin' I was strollin'
With wheat fields wavin' and dust clouds rollin'
As the fog was liftin', a voice comes chantin' ...

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 living can ever stop me
As i go walkin' my freedom highway
Nobody living can have me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

This land is your land and 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.  up

This land was made for your 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.

I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sunny bright sands of your diamond deserts
And all around me a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me.

This land is your land and this land is my land

"Generic" lyrics for most of the shows

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 went walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me the endless skyway
I saw below me the golden valley
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.

Roger McGuinn!
As I was flying up in the skyway
I looked below me, I saw all those highways
I [......] low down, I'm traveling my way
Oh this land was made for you and me.

Jack Elliott!
As the fog was lifting I was strolling
Wheatfields waving, dust clouds rolling
The storm was raging, a voice came chanting
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.

Joni Mitchell!
This land is your land, this land is my land
From San Francisco to the Vancouver island
From the arctic circle to the great great waters
This land was made for you and me.

Bobby Neuwirth!
I did roam and I did go
Down the fiery road on a Plymouth plantation
I stood on the stones of the founded nation
And I knew that 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.  up

This Land Is Your Land 4


27 Nov 1975
cd imgTHE HURRICANE CARTER BENEFIT (vinyl bootleg)

  Live, Rolling Thunder Revue, Bangor ME - 27.nov.1975  

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to New York island
From the Redwood forest to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for your and me.

As i went walkin' that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for your and me.

I roamed and rambled and i followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
All around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for your and me.

When the sun come shining then i was strolling
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
A voice was chanting as the fog was lifting
This land was made for your and me.  up
