2. This Land Is Your Land

This Land Is Your Land was written by Woody Guthrie in 1940 after getting tired of hearing Kate Smith sing God Bless America. The melody is from a Carter family number called "When The World's On Fire".

After he wrote the song, he forgot about it for 4 years until 1944 when he first recorded the song on The Asch Recordings Vol 1 album. Moses Asch was the person who recorded these songs by Woody over a 5 year period.
