This Land Is Not Our Land (Utah Phillips)

“This Land Is Not Our Land” Sheet Music (pdf).
“This Land Is Not Our Land” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Performer: Utah Phillips.
Lyrics: Utah Phillips.
Tune: “This Land Is Your Land.”


As I was walking an endless breadline,
My landlord gave me a two-week deadline.
The local paper printed a better headline:
“This Land Is Not For You And Me!”

This land is their land. It is not our land.
From your plush apartment to your Cadillac car land,
From your Wall Street office to your Hollywood star land,
This land is not for you and me.

And take your slogan and kindly stow it.
If this is our land, you’d never know it.
Let’s get together and overthrow it.
This land was made for you and me.
