I work so hard with nothing to show for it
All I create is later stolen and who’s got the keys unlock these iron gates
Who’s making money who’s dealing in hate
Fascist remix of Woody Guthrie
Twisting the truth up around our necks
This land is yours and this land is mine
What that means is nobody can own the rights
Nobody can own the rights

All the berries are rotten on their vines
And the sorrows here they’re multiplying
And all the things that we want and the things we need
Simply refuse to divide

But all the history we learn is dirty and polluted
So watered down with patriotic sentiment
So what of Lowell so what of Ludlow
The stolen blue prints of a revolution
A fascist remix of Woody Guthrie
Twisting the truth up around our necks
This land is yours and this land is mine
What that means is nobody can own the rights
Nobody can own the rights

Working class women rose and organized
They plotted with the moon to change the tide
Said all things we want and the things we need
Simply refuse to divide

But the big corporations they’ve got lots of gold
Lots of people working for something to hold
But starvation wages are what they get
Yeah the body’s hungry and the spirit’s in a coma
Fascist remix of Woody Guthrie
Twisting the truth up around our necks
This land is yours and this land is mine
What that means is nobody can own the rights
Nobody can own the rights
