6/25/1997 alternate lyrics

Oh, remember a story a father told me
Of how our ancestors had sailed the sea
Bravely in search of a land for free
Then with their prayers, ?
Said I will lay my body home
This land I call home

He spoke very highly of brave and soul
And how they found people had been here before
And said they must lay chained as the sea
Said that you called it home

And so it was said to these our new neighbors
You must move on or we will bury you (scat)
And so it was said to these our new neighbors
You must move on or we will bury you

Father, by design had failed
To supply us with freedom we had stolen anyway
Yet, I would mourn, I’m so guilty
Will my son call it home

And so it was said to these our new neighbors
You must move on or we will bury you
And so it was said to these our new neighbors
You must move on or we will bury you

Stolen, this land is my land
From California to the New York Island
From the Redwood Forest to the Gulf Stream water
This land was made
Well steal it, yet I will call it home
