Tom Morello Plays “This Land Is Your Land” with Occupy Wall St.

Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave guitar great settled in with the Occupy Wall St. protesters, leading them in a version of “This Land Is Your Land”.

Woody Guthrie is the famous folksinger who wrote and recorded “This Land Is Your Land”, which originally had some verses that were taken out in later versions:

As I went walking, I saw a sign there,
And on the sign there, It said “no trespassing.”
But on the other side, it didn’t say nothing!
That side was made for you and me.

In the squares of the city, In the shadow of a steeple;
By the relief office, I’d seen my people.
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking,
Is this land made for you and me?

Tom Morello, "The Nightwatchman"Morello showed up in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park to play some music and stand with the protesters, as he is a political activist.

Morello works as a solo artist now under the name of “The Nightwatchman”, and has concert tickets available for upcoming shows in San Francisco and West Hollywood. After the California shows he heads to play in the UK for about a month.
