This is a song that works as a counter-melody duet with “This Land is Your Land.”
More Than Your Land
Lyrics copyright ©1990 Bret Hesla. Tune: unknown.
This land is more than your land or mine
It’s done fine on its own for several billion years
It’s given life to us all and someday when we die
It will be made from you and me
I don’t know who wrote the melody, but with these lyrics, it’s a nice song to have in your public singing back pocket. And it’s fun to sing. Note: the pdf sheet music is a photocopy from an out of print book, Music of the Land, and also includes some new sustainable agriculture verses for “This Land Is Your Land.”
