♫♫ This Land Is Your Land ♫♫

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.

Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

 Thank You .... because of you, we have this great land. 
Thank you, Grandpa, Marv, Patrick, Robert, Jeremy, Kayla, Matt, Brendon, Glenn, Don, Cathy,  .... and so many more, because of you we are able to do ...

 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.
