To My Old Brown Earth, by Pete Seeger

In Pete’s own words….
To my old brown earth
And to my old blue sky
I’ll now give these last few molecules of “I.”

And you who sing,
And you who stand nearby,
I do charge you not to cry.

Guard well our human chain,
Watch well you keep it strong,
As long as sun will shine.

And this our home,
Keep pure and sweet and green,
For now I’m yours
And you are also mine

[This song is rapturously sung by Pat Humphries on SEEDS, The Songs of Pete Seeger, Vol. 3. — JR]
