Adios Pete Seeger. Turn turn turn

Conocí la obra de Pete Seeger al igual que muchos otros clásicos americanos de la segunda mitad del S.XX gracias a la excelentísima banda sonora de (mi película favorita) Forrest Gump.

En ella había dos obras suyas, Where Have All The Flowers Gone, cantada por él mismo y esta “Turn turn turn” de la mano de The Byrds que se convirtió en uno de los singles de presentación del doble disco.

Este es Pete Seeger, que nos ha dejado hoy mismo:


La letra:

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to build up,a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)
There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)
And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late
