Well May the World Go
(Pete Seeger, 1973)

CHO: Well may the world go,
     The world go, the world go.
     Well may the world go,
     When I'm far away.

Well may the skiers turn,
The swimmers churn, the lovers burn
Peace, may the generals learn
When I'm far away.

Sweet may the fiddle sound
The banjo play the old hoe down
Dancers swing round and round
When I'm far away.

Fresh may the breezes blow
Clear may the streams flow
Blue above, green below
When I'm far away.

Pete has it recorded on his "Banks of Marble" album and on "Together" with Arlo
The more common version of "Weel May The Keel Row" is already in the DT (search:
[keel row]). Pete Seeger was inspired by this song to write the song "Well May
the World Go".
