woody guthrie tribute

From the day they started singing, I've encouraged my girls to think of whatever songs they sing as theirs. They have liberty to add verses, change lyrics, and even alter the tune if they think it appropriate. Cleaning up the study, I just found this new verse to "This Land is Your Land," scribbled out by Evangeline:
As I was walking, and the world was waking,
My legs were tired, and my back was aching.
Yet all around me, a voice was chanting,
"This land was made for you and me."
