A parody of "This Land Is Your Land" written and performed by Marlo Lewis, a senior fellow in energy policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute

Lyrics:

This gas is your gas, this gas is my gas
From the Great Marcellus to the Permian Basin
We didn't drill it, we didn't frack it
This gas belongs to Dow and me

I went seeking, rents from the Congress
Corporate welfare, let's call it balance
America's advantage, the public interest
Don't say confiscatory

Of course I know well, that blocking exports
Cheats the workers, who produce the resource
That's not my problem, I want a subsidy
This gas belongs to Dow and me

It's a natural windfall, a common bounty
It's not really, anyone's property
So we'll just hog it, and they'll still frack abundantly
Plunder will grow the GDP

What's that you're saying, let's curb Dow's exports
So drug companies have cheaper feed stocks
But sauce for the goose ain't for the gander
Don't expect consistency

This gas is your gas, this gas is my gas
From California to the Bakken shale play
We didn't drill it, we didn't frack it
This gas belongs to Dow and me
