“This Land Is Your Land” Lyrics 

This land is your land, this land is my land
From the 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 went walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
And saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for you and me
I roamed and rambled and I 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
When the sun comes shining, then I was strolling
In the wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling
The voice was chanting as the fog was lifting
This land was made for you and me
This land is your land and this land is my land
From the California to the New York island
From the Redwood Forest, to the gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me
When the sun comes shining, then I was strolling
In wheat fields waving and dust clouds rolling
The voice come chanting as the fog was lifting
This land was made for you and me

Guthrie penned this familiar tune in 1940 and the tune’s melody is very similar to the Carter Family’s “When the World’s on Fire,” which was inspired by the Baptist gospel hymn “Oh, My Loving Brother.” In 2002, the iconic song was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

As for Hunt, his most recent single “Body Like a Back Road” dropped in February and he promises to drop more at the start of the new year. The singer-songwriter has revealed that he has songs ready to go, he’s just waiting a bit to make them public.

“I’ve been working on new music along with doing other things that I put on hold for the last few years,” Hunt disclosed to Stylz and Roman. “I do have some songs starting to accumulate. First of the year, I’ll have music ready to rock.”

We look forward to hearing more from the star. Share this cover with other Sam Hunt fans!
