This is your land, it's the way it was planned
Sky to the sea, something to see
Old ancient town, to the old people ground
I wanna know, something to go

This is your land, laid out in your hand
This is your land
Wherever I go, way down here I know
This is your land

Oh, churches and steeples, big city people
I wanna know something to hold
Walk down the track to the old railroad track
I wanna leave something to see

This is your land, laid out in your hand
This is your land
Wherever I go, way down here I know
This is your land

Money can't buy me, money can't buy me
I've got time, time is on my side

You don't know what you've got till the whole thing's gone
The days are dark, the road is long
And when you walk away, the hope is gone
Tell me what is right, what is wrong

Is this the way it was planned
And this is your land, take it in your hand
This is your land
Wherever I go, way down here I know

And this is your land, take it in your hand
This is your land
Wherever I go, way down here I know
This is your land
