This Land is Your Land . . .

Across the LandIn the 1940s, folk singer Woody Guthrie produced a song which later would be considered one of America’s most famous folk song. That song was “This Land is Your Land.” 20 years later, it would be reintroduced to a new generation by a new wave of famous folk singers. Here are the lyrics:

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 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.

I roamed and I rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
While all around me a voice was sounding
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
A voice was chanting, As the fog was lifting,
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.

As I look at this jigsaw puzzle entitled “Across the Land”, it causes me to think of and sing this famous folk song. As you and your loved ones assemble this jigsaw puzzle or other patriotic puzzles, it would be a great time to research and discuss more about Woody Guthrie and his inspiration for his song.
