283. Where Have All The Flowers Gone? - Peter, Paul and Mary amb Pete Seeger

Un record nostàlgic dels Estats Units d'Amèrica. El 2003, durant el concert d'homenatge a Harold Leventhal, Peter, Paul and Mary (amb 65 anyets) es van unir a Pete Seeger (amb 84 anys!) per cantar Where have all the flowers gone?

Tot un clàssic.




Us en poso també la versió original amb imatges descriptives del text.




Where have all the flowers gone?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing?
Where have all the young girls gone, long time ago?
Where have all the young girls gone?
Gone for husbands everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the husbands gone, long time passing?
Where have all the husbands gone, long time ago?
Where have all the husbands gone?
Gone for soldiers everyone
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the soldiers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the soldiers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the soldiers gone?
Gone to graveyards, everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the graveyards gone, long time passing?
Where have all the graveyards gone, long time ago?
Where have all the graveyards gone?
Gone to flowers, everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

Boníssima! Per veure-la tancant els ulls. Mantenen la veu, però les figures denoten el pas dels anys, inexorables.

És cert, les veus es mantenen però els cossos no perdonen.

En Seeger se'l veu grandet però amb un esperit indomable. Si busques pel YouTube hi trobaràs gravacions seves dels anys cinquanta cantant cançons sindicalistes i per l'estil, tot un record històric.
