The similar verse in Guthrie’s handwritten composition, dated Feb. 23, 1940, and printed in Joe Klein’s biography of Guthrie, is:

Was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
A sign was painted said: Private Property
But on the back side it didn’t say nothing –
This land was made for you and me.

And Guthrie sings the verse in one of the versions he recorded for Moe Asch.
