This Land Is Your Land

Other additional verses from Wikipedia. Followed by an Italian...
This land is your land, but it once was my land,
Until we sold you Manhattan Island.
You pushed our Nations to the reservations;
This land was stolen by you from me.

Questa terra è la tua terra, ma un tempo era mia,
finché non ti abbiamo venduto l'isola di Manhattan.
Hai cacciato le nostre Nazioni nelle riserve,
questa terra tu la hai rubata a me.

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.

In the squares of the city, in the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I'd seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?

Nessun vivente potrà azzardare a fermarmi
mentre cammino sulla strada maestra della libertà;
nessun vivente potrà farmi tornare indietro,
questa terra è stata fatta per me e per te.

Nelle piazze cittadine, all'ombra di una siepe,
all'ufficio di collocamento ho visto la mia gente;
mentre stava là affamata, io stavo là e chiedevo:
questa terra è stata fatta per te e per me?
