Take This Land
R. Hollett, 1985
This was composed by Rob, as one of his contributions to the Wakami Wailers' second album Waltz With the Woods.
G Em Take this land and save it’s soul C D Safe for me as I grow old Em/D/G G/D/C Let us share both lake and trees D G Safe and sound for you and me Em C I took a walk across this land G D I feel the earth is like a man Em C It must be helped along though time G D G It must be saved for all mankind I saw the coast of rock and snow The roaring waves as they come home The different lakes of size and name Though far apart can feel the same Great white pines rise to touch the sky Are there for me to climb so high And Forest stands so proud and free Will still be there will still be seen A feel of hope as land stays free The river runs and cleanses me When set aside for all to share We do what’s right we show we care
