This Land Was Made For You And Me

I have had the opportunity to travel across my nation at least ten times.  I have lived in about six out of fifty states.  I have entered many more – but not all fifty -yet.  There is such a vast difference in landscapes and climates in the USA.  I have yet to see the Grand Canyon and Alaska………. so much to see.

I am presently vacationing in the state where I grew up.  Therefore, this post will be short – but sweet.

This Land Is Your Land
Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

This land is your land This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood 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’ve 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 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:
This land was made for you and me.

As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said “No Trespassing.”
But on the other side it didn’t say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.

In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.

More pictures will follow soon.  But until then, here is a pic of the New York skyline – minus The Twin Towers of The World Trade Center 😦
