Of the roughly 1,000 songs written by Guthrie, “This Land Is Your Land” surfaced as a beacon of promise during the lean years of the Great Depression. Writing the words, Guthrie invoked his travels across the United States, particularly through the far West. Since then, the song has taken on a life of its own, transcending political and social divisions and becoming emblematic of the ideal America.
