This Land Is Your Land, Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

woody-guthrie

This land is your land This land is my land
From California to the New York island;
From the red wood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
This land was made for you and Me.

As I was walking that ribbon of highway,
I saw above me that endless skyway:
I saw below me that golden valley:
This land was made for you and me.

I’ve roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts;
And all around me a voice was sounding:
This land was made for you and me.

When the sun came shining, and I was strolling,
And the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,
As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting:
This land was made for you and me.

As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said “No Trespassing.”
But on the other side it didn’t say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.

In the shadow of the steeple I saw my people,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

Nobody living can ever stop me,
As I go walking that freedom highway;
Nobody living can ever make me turn back
This land was made for you and me.


Miley Cyrus – “Lilac Wine”

Lilac Wine” is a song written and composed by James Shelton in 1950 and interpreted since by a number of artists such as Nina Simone or Jeff Buckley.

Lilac Wine

Jeff Buckley

I lost myself on a cool damp night
I gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree

I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be

When I think more than I want to think
I do things I never should do
I drink much more that I ought to drink
Because it brings me back you

Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
Listen to me, I cannot see clearly
Isn’t that she, coming to me nearly here?

Lilac wine is sweet and heady where’s my love?
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, where’s my love?
Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
Isn’t that she, or am I just going crazy, dear?

Lilac wine, I feel unready for my love
Feel unready for my love

Imelda May – Should’ve Been You

Should’ve Been You

Imelda May

I could tell you all the things I do for you
But it’s no surprise and you just roll your eyes and say
“Here we go again
She’s gonna moan again”

I should spare your love, just a thing or two
But you don’t disguise it when I’m just white noise
And it’s done before it begins
‘Cause your temper’s getting thin

But there’s just one thing that I wanna know
Just one little thing before I go
Before I go

It’s who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you
Should’ve been you

Do you realize, no, you never will
‘Cause your head’s held high and you got your pride
I got a little of mine still
Yeah, the bit you couldn’t kill

I’ll never blame you and I always will
I can’t explain it but it hurts like hell
And I’m feeling so alone
Yeah, I’m lonely to the bone

But there’s just one thing that I wanna know
Just one little thing before I go
Before I go

It’s who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you, oh!
Should’ve been you, oh!

And I’m angry
And I’m sad
I’m the best thing that you ever had
All I wanted was your touch
But you told me what I wanted was just too much

Oh, who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you, oh!
Should’ve been you
It should’ve been you
Should’ve been you
