Pete Seeger

Peter "Pete" Seeger (born May 3, 1919) is an iconic American folk singer. A fixture on nationwide radio in the 1940s, he also had a string of hit records during the early 1950s as a member of The Weavers, most notably their recording of Lead Belly's "Goodnight, Irene", which topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950. Members of The Weavers were blacklisted during the McCarthy Era. In the 1960s, he re-emerged on the public scene as a prominent singer of protest music in support of international disarmament, civil rights, and environmental causes. more »

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,  
Bound for the mountain,  bound for the mountain; 
Over the hills, the fields, and the fountain,  
Away to the chase, away, away!

Rover, Rover, see him, see him;  
Rover, Rover, catch him, catch him; 
Over the mountain, the hills, and the fountain,  
Away to the chase, away!

Now all was set just right for the race;  
The old hound dogs are ready for the chase; 
The bears are a-bounding;  the horns are a-sounding;  
Over the trail that leads to the mountain, 
Over the mountain, the hills, and the fountain,  
Away to the chase, away, away!

Listen to the hound dogs' heavy bay  sounding high over the way; 
All night long till the break of dawn,  merrily, the chase goes on; 
Over the mountain, the hills, and the fountain,  
Away to the chase, away!

Away, away, we're bound for the mountain,
Bound for the mountain,  bound for the mountain, 
Over the hills, the fields, and the fountain,  
Away to the chase, away, away!
