The train I ride on is a hundred couches long,
 
you can hear the whistle blow a hundred  
E 
miles.
 
If that

hate to hear that lonesome whistle  
Am

Walkin down the track I got tears in my eyes,
 
tryin ta read a letter from my  
E 
home.
 
If that  
Am 
train runs right I’ll be
Dm 
home tomorrow night,
 
cause I’m  
Am 
nine 
 
hundred
E 
miles from my
Am 
home

This Land Is Your Land

Chords and lyrics for This Land Is Your Land by Woody Guthrie

 
This land is  
G 
your land, this land is  
D 
my 
 
land
 
From Cali
A 
fornia to the New York  
D 
Island
 
From the Redwood  
G 
Forest to the Gulf Stream  
D 
waters
A 
This land was made for you and  
D 
me.
 
As I went  
G 
walking that ribbon of  
D 
highway
 
I saw a
A 
bove me that endless  
D 
skyway
 
I saw be
G 
low me that golden  
D 
valley
A 
This land was made for you and  
D 
me.
 
I roamed and I  
G 
rambled and I followed my  
D 
footsteps
 
To the sparkling  
A 
sands of her diamond  
D 
deserts
 
While all a
G 
round me a voice was  
D 
sounding
A 
This land was made for you and  
D 
me.
 
When the sun came  
G 
shining, and I was  
D 
strolling
 
And the wheat fields  
A 
waving and the dust clouds  
D 
rolling
 
A voice was  
G 
chanting, As the fog was  
D 
lifting,
A 
This land was made for you and  
D 
me.
 
As I went  
G 
walking I saw a sign  
D 
there
 
And on the sign it  
A 
said “No Tres
D 
passing.”
 
But on the  
G 
other side it didn’t say  
D 
nothing,
A 
That side was made for you and  
D 
me.
 
In the squares of the  
G 
city, In the shadow of a  
D 
steeple;
 
By the relief  
A 
office, I’d seen my  
D 
people.
 
As they stood there  
G 
hungry, I stood there  
D 
asking,
A 
Is this land made for you and  
D 
me?
 
Nobody  
G 
living can ever stop  
D 
me,
 
As I go  
A 
walking that freedom  
D 
highway;
 
Nobody  
G 
living can  
D 
make me turn back
A 
This land was made for you and  
D 
me.
