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 »

Come and listen to my story, come and listen to my song. 
I'll tell you of a hero, he's now dead and gone
He was the bravest union boy that I have ever seen
Expecting to be shot on site, or taken for a ride 
By them dirty coal operators
A'shootin down the union men wherever they were found
Gave his life in struggle
That was all that he could do 
He died for the union, 
Also for me and you.
