    I was just talking about him on another group last night, before I heard
    the sad news.

    That link did not work but from Wiki:

    Turn! Turn! Turn!

    The lyrics are taken almost verbatim from the Book of Ecclesiastes, as
    found in the King James Version (1611) of the Bible[2] (Ecclesiastes
    3:1-8), though the sequence of the words was rearranged for the song.
    Ecclesiastes is traditionally ascribed to King Solomon.

    To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the
    A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap
    that which is planted;
    A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to
    build up;
    A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time
    to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to
    A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

    The Biblical text posits there being a time and place for all things:
    laughter and sorrow, healing and killing, war and peace, and so on. The
    lines are open to myriad interpretations, but as a song they are
    commonly performed as a plea for world peace, with an emphasis on the
    closing line: "a time for peace, I swear it's not too late." This line
    and the title phrase "Turn! Turn! Turn!" are the only parts of the lyric
    written by Seeger himself.
