  • This land is your land, this land is my land
    From [the] California to the [Staten] New York Island,
    From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters,
    [God blessed America for me.]
    As I went walking that ribbon of highway
    And saw above me that endless skyway,
    And saw below me the golden valley, I said:
    [God blessed America for me.]

    I roamed and rambled and followed my footsteps
    To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts,
    And all around me , a voice was sounding:
    [God blessed America for me.]

    Was a high wall there that tried to stop me
    A sign was painted said: Private Property,
    But on the back side it didn't say nothing
    [God blessed America for me.]

    When the sun come shining, then I was strolling
    In wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling;
    The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting:
    [God blessed America for me.]

    One bright sunny morning in the shadow of the steeple
    By the Relief Office I saw my people
    As they stood hungry, I stood there wondering if
    [God blessed America for me.]
