    About “This Land” Here are the original lyrics that come after the part we know about:

    As I was walkin’ – I saw a sign there
    And that sign said – “private property”
    But on the other side …. it didn’t say nothin!
    Now that side was made for you and me!

    Chorus

    In the squares of the city – In the shadow of the steeple
    Near the relief office – I see my people
    And some are grumblin’ and some are wonderin’
    If this land’s still made for you and me.

    Woodie Guthrie wrote this song during the Great Depression in support of the New Deal, etc. We just cut out the last bits haha.
