Its in the DT....daks, go to the search box for the DT and click on the letter "T" The name of the song is "This Land Is Your Land."

Its somehow peversely nice to know that someone doesn't know the words to this one.

Spaw

If the number of hits you get by looking up songs starting with "T" is excessive, you can get a much prompter response from the DigiTrad Lyrics Search (at the top of this page). Just enter [This Land is Your Land] ---the square brackets show that it's a phrase and not disconnected words--- and it comes right up.

Yeah dick, I DO know that...but sometimes, if you know the exact title, isn't it just about as easy to look it up alphabetically. It couldn't have taken more than 15 seconds for me to locate it BEFORE I posted the suggestion.

That's why we have both options. The trick is knowing the exact title.

As you've surely found by now, it's "to the New York island", not "desert highland".

I did not see this closing stanza in the DigiTrad:

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.

Then there's the Todd Snyder song, "This Land Is Our Land" that is perhaps a slightly more accurate view of the topic... It's on the album "Songs For The Daily Planet"

This Land Is Our Land
By: Todd Snider

Freeway through a reservation,
Make way for a brand new nation,
Big ideas, we got brand new plans,
Heaven knows we need this land,
We're gonna build big, high and wide
City streets through country sides,
Chemicals, and pesticides.
This land is our land.

Hey, red-man don't waste our time,
We're young and strong, we got hills to climb,
There's a lot of room but we need it all
For slave trade and shopping malls,
Gonna build big factories with paper plates and plastic trees
Styrofoam and antifreeze.
This land is our land.

Chorus:
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land,
This land is our land.
(This is better heard than read! LOL!!)

Well we came out of a ragin' sea,
To claim someplace where we'd be free,
We got hopeful hearts, workin hands
Heaven knows we need this land
Cause the world needs land fills, diet pills and paper mills
We need country clubs and oil spills.
This land is our land.

Chorus:

Freeway through a reservation,
Make way for a brand new nation,
Big ideas, we got brand new plans,
Heaven knows we need this land for super bowls,
Subway rides, remote controls, and pesticides.
Gang related homicides.
This land is our land.

Chorus:

(spoken) As I was walking, on down the road there I saw a sign there said "NO TRESPASSING" But the other side didn't say nothing This land was made for me and you
