Gotta chime in Cliff Claven like...

This isn't directly PCT related, but important if you quote Mr. Guthrie's
answer to "God Bless America".."This Land is Your Land".  The following
two verses (4th and 6th) are always dropped from the song, thus
somewhat defeating  Woody's original intent for "This Land is Your Land":

Was a high wall there that tried to stop me
A sign was painted said: Private Property,
But on the back side it didn't say nothing --
[God blessed America for me.]

One bright sunny morning in the shadow of the steeple
By the Relief Office I saw my people --
As they stood hungry, I stood there wondering if
[God blessed America for me.]
