This Land Is Your Land
Music: Woody Guthrie
Words: Joel Landy
This land is your land. This land is my land
From Tallahassee to the Key Islands,
But who’s controlling the votes and polling?
Someone’s Bushwhacking you and me.
The election’s over, or so they tell us.
Gore’s is a sorehead, or he’s just jealous.
Yet there’s still chatter of votes that matter, and that
This land is made for you and me.
They send protesters around in buses
And media labels of “thems” and “us’es”
Despite their muscle and P.R. hustle
And things you see on the TV,
From Katherine Harris through our legal system,
Thousands of voters – how did we miss them?
We’ve made our choices.
Now hear our voices:
This land is still made for you and me.
