Fans-wish-Pete-Seeger-a-happy-94th-birthday

One day one day
A man come walkin' along
He played me a tune
Taught me a song
He'd sing out high
He'd sing out low
He'd surround all hate
With an old banjo

So here's to you, troubadour
Your song goes on forever more
Here's to you, troubadour
Your song goes on
Forever more

He rambled east
He rambled west
Along with Woody,
He rambled best
Heard a nation sing
As they rolled along
Gave us their songs
And we pass them on

He never cared
For worldly goods
Just built him a cabin
Up in the woods
"The time is now,
The place is here
To break away
Cruel chains of fear"

So here's to you, -troubadour
Your song goes on forever more
Here's to you, -troubadour
Your song goes on
Forever more


Bad laws decreed,
"Such dreams offend
Swear your allegiance,
Sell out your friends"
"My honor, Sir
is not for sale
I'd rather be
locked up in jail"

Once we sang
"We Shall Overcome"
We thought we'd be
Forever young
But though the time
Has come and gone
Aboard Clearwater
The ship sails on

So here's to you, troubadour
Your song goes on forever more
Here's to you, troubadour
Your song goes on
Forever more..


I see him now
in Washington
Calls out these lines
To a million strong
We know, Mr President
That you agree
This Land belongs
To you and me

That old banjo
Still rings so clear
Rings out his love
For all to hear
So let us sing
These last few lines
Lift up your voices
One more time

So here's to you, troubadour
Your song goes on forever more
Here's to you, -troubadour
Your song goes on
Forever more

So here's to you, troubadour...
