Nostalgia Alert!

This land is your land
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.

Now, I know that this song is about the USA – which is not my land – but we did sing it at school in my young days so it is nostalgic to me too!
The song was written by Woody Guthrie in 1940 – and, no, I didn't hear it when it was released in 1945!
It has been recorded by many artists including – Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul and Mary.  If you would like to hear the song again, hop on over to this YouTube clip. (It has Bob Dylan and Pete Seegar leading the song)


  1. Hi Carole! I have been a terrible blogger as of late (apologies). I love this song! My family used to sing it on our "over-the-road" vacations, brings back so many memories!

  2. Even here so faraway from tithe U S this song is so familiar.

  3. LOL ~ this song sticks with you forever. Love it. :-)
