They’ve turned to Leaders (of The Pack)…every…one. Now, with that solved, time for a snack.
it could still be “long time passing”
I put the word “Flowers” into the above statement when I first read it too. That song, “Where have all the Flowers Gone” the first 3 verses written by Pete Seeger was inspired by a traditional Cossacks folk song that he’d read about in a book. He said he carried the phrase “Long Time Passing around in his head. He recorded it 4 or 5 years later, then forgot about it. Joe Hickerson added verse 4 & 5. Now it’s a classic!!! I love what Seeger said about it…”A song is like a child, when it gets out in the world, it often surprises the parent”. Quite the evolution here. Tonight a friend left a message on my phone answering machine about my partner of 29 years who just passed away 4 days ago. He said he is a “Flower”
Good question for
Searchers of Seeger songs…
