This Land Is Your Land

Woody Guthrie

Versione inglese di Utah Phillips
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?


As I was walking an endless breadline,
My landlord gave me a two-week deadline.
The local paper printed a better headline:
"This Land Is Not For You And Me!"

This land is their land. It is not our land.
From your plush apartment to your Cadillac car land,
From your Wall Street office to your Hollywood star land,
This land is not for you and me.

And take your slogan and kindly stow it.
If this is our land, you'd never know it.
Let's get together and overthrow it.
This land was made for you and me.
