Seeger's 'Long May The World Go'

DigiTrad:
BIG MUDDY
DON'T ASK WHAT A RIVER IS FOR
FLOWERS OF PEACE
I MIND MY OWN BUSINESS
MY GET UP AND GO HAS GOT UP AND WENT
MY OLD BROWN EARTH
OH, HAD I A GOLDEN THREAD
OLD DEVIL TIME
ONE GRAIN OF SAND
PRECIOUS FRIEND
QUITE EARLY MORNING
SAILING DOWN MY DIRTY STREAM
SAILING DOWN MY GOLDEN RIVER
SOUR CREAM
TURN, TURN, TURN or TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON
WALKING DOWN DEATH ROW
WELL MAY THE WORLD GO

Does anyone have lyrics to Pete Seeger's song that has the refrain, "Long may the world go when I'm far away."? Thank you. Andy

FROM THE DIGITRAD:


WELL MAY THE WORLD GO
(Pete Seeger, 1973)

CHO: Well may the world go,
The world go, the world go.
Well may the world go,
When I'm far away.

Well may the skiers turn,
The swimmers churn, the lovers burn
Peace, may the generals learn
When I'm far away.

Sweet may the fiddle sound
The banjo play the old hoe down
Dancers swing round and round
When I'm far away.

Fresh may the breezes blow
Clear may the streams flow
Blue above, green below
When I'm far away.


Pete has it recorded on his "Banks of Marble" album and on "Together" with Arlo
Guthrie.
The more common version of "Weel May The Keel Row" is already in the DT (search:
[keel row]). Pete Seeger was inspired by this song to write the song "Well May
the World Go".

Thank you so much! Janet and I were compiling a list of songs to sing at funerals and I remember loving this one but I had forgotten most of the lyrics. Andy
