Jimmy Buffet Performs Unique Rendition Of 'This Land Is Your Land'

Jimmy Buffet embraces every part of the U.S.A. as he performs a unique rendition of “This Land is Your Land.”

Over the years, Jimmy Buffet and his Coral Reefer Band have recorded 67 singles. Many of those songs transport listeners to sandy, southern ports, and the vibe of this performance is consistent with Jimmy’s other music.

Jimmy stands barefoot in front of the microphone, wearing shorts and a nautical-themed shirt as he sings and plays the ukulele. Group members, in the background, are similarly dressed as they play steel pan drums and a melodica. They play poolside in a tropical setting. However, the images we see are from all across the United States, and we can truly feel the artist’s appreciation for all things American.

Though there’s no way to know how many states are pictured throughout the video, there is a thorough representation of the beautiful and varied wonders this country has to offer. As the song goes, we see wheat fields, deserts and redwood forests. The Golden Gate Bridge, The Gateway Arch, and the Statue of Liberty are all featured, as well. And kids...lots of kids!

We see images of children and teens as they swing, ride bikes, dance on boardwalks, play baseball and scamper on the beach. It’s hard to feel anything but grateful for the opportunity to live in a country where kids can do all those things freely and where the landscape is so vast and breathtaking!

Parades and sparklers, military servicemen and flags send a message of patriotism too. And, it’s clear that there’s at least one thing all Americans have in common—we can claim those snow-covered mountains, rolling rivers and picturesque New England falls as uniquely ours. This land is our land, from Jimmy’s own gulf stream waters to all the rest! Aren’t we blessed?

“Sing to the Lord with grateful praise; make music to our God on the harp.” Psalms 147:7
