An advocacy song

I have had this going through my head and I needed to share it.

Everyone join in, you know the tune:

These roads are your roads, these roads are my roads
From California, to the New York Island
From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
These roads were made for you and me

As I was riding a ribbon of highway
I saw above me an endless skyway
I saw below me a golden valley
These roads were made for you and me


I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my tire tracks
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
These roads were made for you and me


The sun comes shining as I was rolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds blowing
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
These roads were made for you and me


As I was ridin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no bicycles
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!


In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
On the sidewalks - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If these roads are still made for you and me.

Chorus (2x)

Apologies to Woody Guthrie
