Ketty Lester – This Land Is Your Land 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 walkin'
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

[Repeat chorus]

I roamed and rambled
And I followed my footsteps
To the sparklin' sands
Of her diamond deserts

And all around me
A voice was sounding
This land was made for
You and me

[Repeat chorus]

Oh, the sun was shinin'
And I was golden
And the wheat was wavin'
And the dust clouds rollin'
And the fog was liftin'
A voice was calling
This land was made for
You and me

[Repeat chorus]
