As I was walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me the Golden Valley
This land was made for you and me

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
This land was made for you and me

I roamed and rambled and I 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

Yeahh yeahh
Whoa!

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

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 mí
