This is our land, my land and your land, to be honored in reverence of those who fought and died to make her free, in tribute to those who are still fighting today to maintain that freedom, and in regard to those who are yet to fight to see that freedom is never lost.

This Land is Your Land is an iconic folk song written by Woody Guthrie in 1940. Many renditions have been re-recorded by numerous vocal artists, i.e., Bob Dylan, The Kingston Trio, Trini Lopez, Jay and the Americans, The New Christy Minstrels, Peter, Paul and Mary, Bruce Springsteen, and Pete Seeger.
Connecting the past to the present. . .
With its latest release by Neil Young and Crazy Horse on June 5, 2012, the empowerment of this song still weighs heavy in the hearts and souls of America.
Jason Harrod tried to do what Neil did and make "This Land is Your Land" his own. There's something healing about driving down the highway beside someone you love, letting the land wash over you at 65 miles per hour.
This land is your land! Take time to see the USA!
