His SignatureSong, "This Land Is Your Land" is still a standard, though in the original context it was actually a ProtestSong instead of a PatrioticFervor song. He originally wrote it as a Take That to Irving Berlin's "God Bless America"[[note]]The revised version of "God Bless America" was released just two years before "This Land is Your Land" was[[/note]], responding to the song's nationalist undertones by singing about the importance of America's diversity and sense of inclusiveness. Hell, some early versions of the song are overtly political in nature—and a few of them even mention Guthrie's support of the Communist Party.
