    Lyrics
    This land is your land, this land is my land
    From the California to the New York island
    From the Redwood Forest, to the gulf stream waters
    This land was made for you and me

    If you'll gather 'round me, children,

    Lyrics
    It's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoed
    My poor feet have traveled a hot dusty road
    Out of your Dust Bowl and westward we rolled
    And your deserts were hot and your mountain was cold
    I worked in your orchards of peaches and prunes

    Lyrics
    I ain't got no home, I'm just a-roamin' 'round,
    Just a wandrin' worker, I go from town to town.
    And the police make it hard wherever I may go
    And I ain't got no home in this world anymore.
    My brothers and my sisters are stranded on this road,

    Lyrics
    I've been havin' some hard travelin', I thought you knowed
    I've been havin' some hard travelin', way down the road
    I've been havin' some hard travelin', hard ramblin', hard gamblin'
    Been havin' some hard travelin', Lord
    I've been ridin' them fast rattlers, I thought you knowed
    Hard Travelin'  -  92,169 plays
