Thread Name: Lyr Req: For the Godless March on Washington
Subject: Lyr Add: IT'S NOT JUST YOUR LAND
Mrrzy .. I started the other thread because I hadn't noticed this one.

Here's my stab at the songs you were mentioning:

 Godless America, land that I love
In this season use your reason
Do not pray for a light from above.
Don't be weary. Test each theory. From the hard facts never roam.
Godless America, my home sweet home
Godless America, my home sweet home.

-------------------------------------------------

IT'S NOT JUST YOUR LAND (Woody Guthrie might have approved)

It's not just your land, it's also 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.

While you were praying, I heard you saying
That you were claiming the whole dang nation.
By stick or carrot, you'll have to share it --
This land belong to you and me.

As I went walking, I heard you talking.
You said the godless they just weren't welcome
Yet here there's room in, for the secular human
This land was made for you and me.

We've forsworn Islam and Shintoism
Escaped dominion by the Church of England
It is not treason to live by reason.
This land was made for you and me.

The Declaration of Independence
Was signed by many a godless patriot
So don't ignore us, join in the chorus –
This land was made for you and me.

It's not just your land, it's also 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.
