This Land Is Your Land

Woody Guthrie

Irish transcreation by Gabriel Rosenstock
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
Yeah, yeah

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forests to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and me

I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me
Yeah

No existe nadie que pueda pararme
Por el camino de libertad
No existe nadie que pueda hacerme volver
Esta tierra es para ti para mi

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters
Esta tierra es para ti y para mi
IS LEATSA AN TÍR SEO

Is leatsa an tír seo is liomsa an tír seo
Ó Rinn Ó gCuanach siar go Ciarraí
Ó Oileáin Árann go Geataí Stormont
Linne go léir is ea an tír.

Ar bharr Chruach Phádraig i lár na hoíche
Do chuala scéal mór i mbéal na gaoithe
Is ní raibh ann ach seacht bhfocal díreach:
Linne go léir is ea an tír!

Is mé ag siúl liom go Baile Átha Cliath
Ba chasta an bóthar ’bhí ann dar fia:
Do thugas léim mhór thar shruth is altán
Linne go léir is ea an tír.

Do chuas an bealach ar fad go Teamhair
Is beag nár chuas-sa as mo mheabhair:
Tá léirscrios déanta ar shean-Éirinn
Linne go léir is ea an tír.

Os comhair na Dála do sheasas tamall
Ghabh Teachta tharam is é ina ghamal:
‘Dia dhuit’, ar mé leis, ‘Hello!’ ar seisean
Linne go léir is ea an tír.

Do chuas ag rith as sin im’ ghósta
Sa deireadh bhaineas amach an cósta
Bhí slua romham ann is iad go deorach –
Linne go léir is ea an tír.

Is leatsa an tír seo is liomsa an tír seo
Ó Rinn Ó gCuanach siar go Ciarraí
Ó Oileáin Árann go Geataí Stormont
Linne go léir is ea an tír!
