    Thank you for sharing this song with us. Every once in a while this song comes into my mind and I think about how it is just as significant today as it was when it was first recorded. When will they [we] ever learn?
    . . . and justice for all.

    Yes, it's just the names that change. Pete Seeger wrote this just 2 years after the Korean War finished. Everyone at that time would also be aware of the millions that were killed around the world in WWII.

    Thanks. The basic picking pattern is straightforward: 4 2 3 1 throughout. There are a few tricky pinky pull-offs as well though.

    I have never heard this song but it is wonderful. Thanks for sharing it here. Somehow this song reminds me of tulips in spring. I love flowers and I think it would be so sad if all flowers would be gone. So hopefully the flowers will only disappear in winter and come back in spring.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more just now.

    That doesn't mean my UAS is cured.

    It's just in remission.

    I also play some other instruments:
