  12. A very happy birthday, Pete! You’ve been inspiring me for over 50 years!. I still recall some of the early Hootnannies. There’s no one else like you. May you live on – and on – and on!

    Just one to be another well-wisher on your birthday. You were one of my introductions to folk music. Remember hearing you at the folk festival in Grant Park, the People’s Church and at the Clearwater Festival. Happy, happy birthday.

    Pete
    you have been my inspiration for decades, in music, in fight for peace and inviroment and I constantly listen to your recordings trying to get something out of my longnecked 5-string Seegerbajo.
    Happy birthday.

  15. Happy Birthday Pete, from one who’s still singing your songs after half a century. Here’s a new text in celebration of heroism in the tradition of the “Reuben James” – same tune of course which can be heard here

    Your friend

    UNITED 93

    It was on a Tuesday morning, the sun was shining bright
    37 passengers were boarding for the flight
    Destination San Francisco, they’d never get to see
    Departure boards were flashing United 93

    Chorus
    United 93, remember their names
    Come tell of the time on that great silver plane
    The bravest band of travellers that ever flew the sky
    Said “We’re bound to fight ‘cause we know we’re bound to die.”

    Half an hour in the air, four hijackers attacked
    Blood flowed in the cockpit, the passengers forced back
    They could see that these assassins were bent on suicide
    Their dark and deadly plan must surely be defied

    Chorus

    (spoken)
    Time was short, they all phoned home, said what they had to do
    “We’re gonna take the plane back even if we go down too”
    Five men led the charge, a voice called out “Let’s roll”
    They crashed at Stoney Creek and became immortal souls

    Chorus

    A fireball of lightening broke across the hills that day
    God knows what greater terror they defeated by the way
    So when we sing of heroes who keep our country free
    We’ll remember the passengers on Flight 93

    Chorus
    Flight United 93….

    I enjoyed many Pittsburgh concerts and one on Long Island when a visit there happened to coincide with a Clearwater docking. Best wishes today and for many years to come.

    Comrade Pete, all the best, my love from Portugal.

  21. Ramonet said

    Dear Pete Seeger. At 20 I bought your record with the Weavers. Later in 1966 I was at the concert you gave in Paris (fabulous instants !).
    The world of poor people has a lot of thanks to give you.
    What you made is out of sight. A very important work for humanity, for peace and love.
    Thanks a million for you.
    Michel Ramonet from France
