To My Old Brown Earth


Words:
Pete Seeger

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 your are also
Mine.
