This Land is your Land

This land is your land
This land is my land
From Bonavista to the Vancouver Island
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake waters
This land was made for you and me

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

CHORUS: This land is your land
This land is my land
From Bonavista to the Vancouver Island
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake waters This land was made for you and me

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

CHORUS: This land is your land
This land is my land
From Bonavista to the Vancouver Island
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake waters This land was made for you and me

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

CHORUS: This land is your land
This land is my land.
From Bonavista to the Vancouver Island
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake waters This land was made for you and me
This land is your land

CHORUS: This land is my land
This land is your land
From Bonavista to the Vancouver Island
From the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake waters This land was made for you and me.
