The Lyrics

Tribute to Pete Seeger, legendary folk singer, songwriter, and activist who died January 27th, at the age of 94.
He lived a good life, he lived a long life,
He stood for freedom, and he gave a song life,
Now he's on that highway,
Trav'lin' through the skyway
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

He sang with Woody, and he sang with The Weavers
His songs had folk heart, they made us believers,
He sang of hammers, and he sang of flowers
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

He lived a good life, he lived a long life,
He stood for freedom, and he gave a song life,
Now he's on that highway,
Trav'lin' through the skyway
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

Sang songs of railroads, and songs about foxes
Songs of the coal mines, and homes like boxes
He was for the poor man, and for that longshoreman
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

He lived a good life, he lived a long life,
He stood for freedom, and he gave a song life,
Now he's on that highway,
Trav'lin' through the skyway
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

Oh, he sang on Farm aid, at his ninety-four age
And he played the banjo, it would be his last page
All the crowd would cheer him, great artists near him,
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

He lived a good life, he lived a long life,
He stood for freedom, and he gave a song life,
Now he's on that highway,
Heaven's portal skyway
Pete Seeger sang for you and me

Pete Seeger sang for you and me
