    Pete Seeger: Where Have All the Flowers Gone?

    Pete Seeger has died at the age of 94. In his memory I have provided the above youtube link to one of his most popular songs.

    Pete Seeger: Bring 'Em Home

    Bring 'Em Home Lyrics

    If you love your Uncle Sam,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    Support our boys in Vietnam,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    It'll make our generals sad, I know,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    They want to tangle with the foe,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    They want to test their weaponry,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    But here is their big fallacy,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    I may be right, I may be wrong,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    But I got a right to sing this song,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    There's one thing I must confess,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    I'm not really a pacifist,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    If an army invaded this land of mine,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    You'd find me out on the firing line,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    Even if they brought their planes to bomb,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    Even if they brought helicopters and napalm,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    Show those generals their fallacy:
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    They don't have the right weaponry,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    For defense you need common sense,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    They don't have the right armaments,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    The world needs teachers, books and schools,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    And learning a few universal rules,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    So if you love your Uncle Same,
    Bring them home, bring them home.
    Support our boys in Vietnam,
    Bring them home, bring them home.

    As calming as his music was, I still associate his music along with other artists with the turmoil of the 60's and 70's, which is a shame because I enjoyed his music back then. RIP Pete Seeger, I hope you found the peace you always sought and sang about in this life before you left us.
