This Land Is Your Land" is one of the United States' most famous folk songs. Its lyrics were written by American folk singer Woody Guthrie in 1940, based on an existing melody, a Carter Family tune called "When the World's on Fire", in critical response to Irving Berlin's "God Bless America. When Guthrie was tired of hearing Kate Smith sing "God Bless America" on the radio in the late 1930s, he sarcastically called his song "God Blessed America for Me" before renaming it "This Land Is Your Land.

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 belongs to you and me. As I went rollin' That river of a highway I saw above me that endless skyway I saw below me that golden valley Yes, this land belongs to you and me. 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 belongs to you and me. I rode and rambled I followed my footsteps Crossed the golden sands of your diamond deserts And all around . .

This Land was a Canadian television series, which aired from 1970 to 1982 on CBC Television. Evolving from the earlier series This Land of Ours, a documentary series about Canada's agricultural and natural resources, This Land expanded its focus to include environmental and conservation issues. Hosts of the show included Jon Hopkins, Phyllis Gorman, Laurie Jennings, Mary Chapman, John Foster, Mike Halleran and Don Francks. This Land is the fifth album by Bill Frisell to be released on the Elektra Nonesuch label. It was released in 1994 and features performances by Frisell, Billy Drewes, Curtis Fowlkes, Kermit Driscoll and Joey Baron.

The recorded version of This Land Is Your Land did not include the verse about the relief office. One may speculate about the reasons, but Guthrie may have made the changes for a nation at war. Or perhaps he no longer saw a need to respond to God Bless America. The artist and the producers did not treat This Land Is Your Land any differently than the other songs recorded at the sessions. Asch did not have the money to release any of the songs. So, once again the song sat in limbo. A different version appears on the album of the same name. I like the way this version starts with Woody, and then it transitions into his son Arlo Guthrie and other singers. The song stays understated before becoming a joyous hoedown with John Mellencamp. Bruce Springsteen has performed This Land Is Your Land for decades. He included it on his Live 1975-1985 box set.
