Happy birthday!

This Land Is Your Land turns 70 years old today. Woody Guthrie drafted the original version on February 23, 1940, while staying at the Hanover House Hotel in New York City. His original title was God Blessed America, which he changed to This Land Was Made for You and Me. The current title dates to 1944 when Woody first recorded the song. The tune comes from a traditional hymn, When the World's On Fire.

You can view the original manuscript at the website.
