Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Add: Quite Early Morning (Pete Seeger)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Quite Early One Morning
I heard the whole song (spotify lets you do that, and putatively pays some kind of performance royalty to the musician, if you're prepared to put up with the occasional advert).

I don't know the traditional folksong. Is it of the "as I strolled out one May morning..." variety? The Pete Seeger song is a call to action, a bit of a sort of We Shall Overcome, only one with a the sense of a clock ticking to it, if that makes sense. One for any green socialists out there...
