Subject: No Closing Chord - Tribute to Pete

This is a song, words by Malvina Reynolds, music by Pete Seeger. After Malvina died, Pete Seeger took a poem of hers, set it to music, and sang it at her memorial concert. I think this ought to also be a tribute to Pete Seeger. It was recorded by Rosalie Sorrels

No Closing Chord
words by Malvina Reynolds
music by Pete Seeger (1976)

Don't play that closing chord for me, baby, baby,
I want a wake to wake the dead.
Some rolling sounds with drums and rocking bass,
And my good comrades dancing all around the place.

Don't play that closing chord for me, baby, baby,
I want rejoicing when I go.
Celebrate my advent and that I've had my day,
With a roving melody to send me on my way.

Don't play that closing chord for me, baby, baby,
Lugubrious is not my style.
I favored grins and laughs, with loving on the side.
So do a Moog type version of "Here Comes the Bride."

Don't play that closing chord for me, baby, baby,
I'll bless the ground from whence I came,
I'll make some daisy shine. . .daisy shine
Some grass grow green. . .grass grow green.
And leave a sneaky dandelion to decorate the scene.

That says it all!
Cheers, S. in Seattle
