Thread Name: Origins: Turn, Turn, Turn (Pete Seeger)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song Turn, Turn, Turn by Beatles
Pete Seeger wrote it from Ecclesiastes.

When the Byrds did their version, I suppose Roger McGuinn would adjusted it a bit. And the Beatles never did it that I've heard.

And if you want to sing it, I'd advise using Pete Seeger's version as your jumping-off place, rather than the Byrds.
