Information About This Land is Your Land

"This Land Is Your Land" is a famous American folk song. Folk singer Woody Guthrie wrote the lyrics for this song in 1940 as a response to "God Bless America" written by Irving Berlin, which according to Guthrie was complacent and unrealistic.

The melody of "This Land Is Your Land" bears some resemblance to the melody of the Baptist gospel hymn "Oh, My Loving Brother".

The songs popularity has been enhanced by recorded versions from artists such as Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

I Absolutely Love this song! When I was in Elementary school our whole school would sing this song at the beginning of every assembly.. It's a pity our children today cant have that experience and truly be able to appreciate our wonderful country!

Tina from Davenport: OMG! That's the Woodster himself singing it! He was THE man! You can't ask for a better recording. New lyrics to fit Guthrie's sentiments for a new horrible age: With a new debt ceiling and our nation crumbling, 'Our fortune spent on foreign wars so bumbling, Stuff's made in China, 'stead of North Carolina, What's left of this land for you and me?
