An evening of discussion & song, with Pete Seeger
Where: the Connie Hogarth Center for Social Action
Located at Manhattanville College, in Purchase, N.Y.
Date: 9-20-2013 Time: 7pm
In this video, at the very beginning of the program, Dr.
Peter "Pete" Seeger, at the tender age of 94
1/3rd yrs., young, performs this timeless, beautiful
and stirring song, he penned, himself.
Pete wrote this song, for the world's children
Quite Early Morning
Don't you know it's DARKEST Before the DAWN,
this thought keeps me moving on
If we could heed these early warnings
The time is now, quite early morning
Some say that humankind won't long endure
But what makes them feel, So doggone sure?
I know that you who hear my singing
Make those freedom bells go ringing
And so we keep on while we live
Until we have no more to give
And when these fingers can strum no longer
And the old banjo to young ones stronger
Don't you know it's darkest, before the dawn
This thought keeps me moving on
Through all this world of joy and sorrow
WE STILL CAN HAVE, SINGING...TOMORROW!
This and dozens, if not, hundreds of other Pete Seeger
songs, can be purchased online at, among other places:
