Abbie - I am falling out of my chair in astonishment! This is a song that I learned in grade school many many years ago, but I never heard the last two verses! I never knew it was anything other than a tribute to the glories of America - and I'll bet that 99% of Americans who could sing the chorus from memory have no idea that there was any "social commentary" anywhere in the song.

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
words and music by Woody Guthrie

Chorus:
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 was walking a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

Chorus

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks! I'm such an ignorant.Emotion: smile
I think that many people don't even know it was by Woodie Guthrie, which would probably give a clue![8]
