If I were singing at the inauguration...

This is what I'd sing:

This land is your land, this land is my land
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the Gulf stream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was flying a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

I've flown and rambled and I've followed my wingbeats
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

The moon was shining as I was hunting
The branches waving and the yummy mice running,
The fog was lifting, a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

Chorus

As I was flying, - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tres passin'
On the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
But both sides were made for you and me!

Thanks so much for that photo, Doxie!
