This Land is My Land
Except the last line was "This land was made for me not you. Ron NY - December 03, - Report this comment. I heard this in the schoolyard in the early Seventies, except that, again, it was "made for me, not you". Doesn't seem to scan as it appears here.
Phil Alexander - January 16, - Report this comment. Another random gem I missed first time around.. I love the rhyme "I got a shotgun, and you don't got none". Paul Robinson - January 23, - Report this comment. I went "4" across here. The disclaimer is ok here because your version has such a dramatically different sentiment from the original and that one IS a classic anthem that has a lot of meaning to many folks me included.
That said I didn't see anything all that offensive about this parody. Sometimes if you are uncomfortable with the thought that people might get the impression a parody like this reflects your own personal beliefs you can make your pre-comments indicate that they are from a 3rd person character, i. I don't think you needed to basically repeat the same disclaim on the end comments, but I can tell you were a bit uneasy about offending. If that was the case then by all means disclaim away rather than step on toes.
Kelli - March 11, - Report this comment. Michael Pacholek - April 07, - Report this comment. Beaner - August 22, - Report this comment. I've heard this before. You didn't make this up. I've done a parody of the same song Here's one Arlo sang for me at a Miami park concert This land is your land, it once was my land..
I think Woody would have been proud! Ragdoll - June 18, - Report this comment. Hey, it was alright. I suppose with the limits of the song, you did what you could. Personally, I found the overemphasis of no offense meant in the top and bottom comments a lot more humorous.
This song inspired me to write parodies to popular songs, as well. Jen4u - January 05, - Report this comment. BeeBeeGun - May 19, - Report this comment. Adam - December 24, - Report this comment.
Woody Guthrie – This Land Is Your Land Lyrics | Genius Lyrics
Take a look at this NRA report! 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.

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 There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me Sign was painted, it said private property But on the back side it didn't say nothing That side 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?
