CAPO: 1st Fret


INTRO: G  Bm  C  D  (2x)

                G                               Bm
It was a maiden voyage, she rode shotgun in the back
   C                       D
We made snow angels in the motel tire tracks
            G                           Bm
The traffic thinned, it parted just for us
                 C             D       G
Through rain and wind, through ash and rust


           Em                           C
We saw the white dome, like a gleaming breast
                         G                                    D
But our eyes were on the White House and to hell with all the rest
           Em                             C
The masses gathered, drinking frozen margaritas
                 G           D               G
At the 8th and G south face, Capitol Hill Cantinas
 

CHORUS:
            Em                   C
It goes like this, you take your hand
            G                         D
You lift it up and you put it on your heart
              Em
And there you stand
           C           G                       D
Singing, 'This land is your land, this land is my land'


         G                   Bm
A little body so packed with clothes
     C                              D
Disappearing into hordes and lining up in useless rows
   G                      Bm
Of three million people, ashamed and accused
          C                                   D           G
Scared to say where they're from, angry their name's been used


          Em                C
I held my girl as she fell asleep
                G                      D
At the noontime hour, at the inaugural weep
              Em                         C
A man said to me, 'You are living in the present moment'
           G                         D    G
And I felt shut out, cold, tired and all alone


CHORUS:
            Em                   C
It goes like this, you take your hand
            G                         D
You lift it up and you put it on your heart
              Em
And there you stand
           C           G                       D
Singing, 'This land is your land, this land is my land'


INTERLUDE: G  Bm  C  D


               G                      Bm
The privileged held, while the masses flowed
     C                           D 
Just like a mighty river running through my soul
        G                           Bm
My girl cried for a flag, something she could understand
       C                               D        G
And we marched through the street as I held her hand


              Em                        C
The good days come, not just the golden dies
             G                    D 
As the giant sleeps under cumulus skies
            Em                   C
We sing and dance and scream our names
                       G         D           G
Sleep the sleep of the weary and drive home again


CHORUS:
                   Em                   C
Honey, it goes like this, you take your hand
            G                         D
You lift it up and you put it on your heart
              Em
And there you stand
           C           G                       D
Singing, 'This land is your land, this land is my land'


CHORUS:
             Em                  C
It goes like this, you take your hand
            G                         D
You lift it up and you put it on your heart
              Em
And there you stand
           C           G                       D      G     Bm   C  D  G
Singing, 'This land is your land, this land is my____ land____'
