Very nice, Fred. Peace, love, dove. I was out of the state's during this time and missed a lot of folk music and thought provoking sentiment. A lot of expressionism now a part of our lore.
I hadn't thought of the Seekers in years, so your link led me to listen to several others of them. It was a long time ago.
“...a time to die”. Thnx Pete, we’ll catch up with you if I get past St. Peter....
Thks Fred -- one of my favorites -- loved Judy Collins version but The Seekers are excellent also .
The Byrds version was a hit...made Pete S a few $$
Holy crow never knew Seeger wrote and composed this tune?! Rad...must have made a few bucks on this one haha
My banjo hero Pete may have thought up the TUNE, but the basic words are from the third chapter of the Book of Ecclesiastes, in the King James' Version of the Bible.
If you read the ENTIRE book, it can get pretty depressing, especially the parts about EVERYTHING we try to do is just vanity of vanities, and a chase after wind.
Re, Mike’s post : I was raised that way, not that I heard it at home, but at Church - that everything we do is riddled with selfishness, vanity and ego. Even jumping into a pond to rescue a drowning man - we do it so we won't have to live with the torment of guilt if we don't.
