Song: 'Turn Turn Turn (To Everything There is a Season'
Album: 'Pete Seeger's Greatest Hits' (2002)
Artist/Composer: King Solomon-Ecclesiastes / Pete Seeger
The song is based on verses from the book of Ecclesiastes
in the Bible. Pete Seeger put music to the words in 1959, and
recorded his own version in 1962. The Byrds recorded it in 1965.
Such a beautiful melody with ancient words, unique and inspiring.
The words apply to the time, every generation, today & everywhere.
Taken and paraphrased from the bible, with only the last line
written by Pete Seeger. That line is: "I swear its not too late".
Pete Seeger was born in 1919. He is a well known American folk singer, song writer, civil rights and environmental activist. This is to name a small part of his pursuits. He is 93 years old - an incredibly talented individual who has given so much.
* r.i.p. to this wonderful man and musician* ڿڰۣ☸
Lyrics taken from Ecclesiastes Chapter 3
