Peggy Quotes

I wasn't prepared for quite how radiant, gracious and gutsy she would appear both in person and as a performer. It was like watching a master class in folk performance to be frank: a truly positive force.  - Karine Polwart

Peggy Quotes 2

The collaboration of a septuagenarian American folk music legend and a British experimental dance music producer may be highly improbable, but folk grande dame Peggy Seeger and Broadcaster have pulled off a genre-defying album full of hypnotic and hook-laden delights.

Everything Changes

Everything Changes

The house I lived in when I was a child
Had woods . . . . we all ran wild
You could hide ... then come home - after a while.
    The town I lived in when I was young   
    Everybody knew my name
    The world was my own
    Out in the dark, playing games
    Till mama called me home.

But that was then and now it's now
Everything changes, somehow
The house I lived in
The town I lived in
Everything changes ----


O, you been gone so long
Memories fade
It's dark and I'm afraid
I'm your little girl child
Your own, your very own
Mama, it's late - time to call me home.


The house I live in -  my hometown
The trees -- the city cut them down
It's all changed, you can't hide
The house stands there, lonely and strange
I stood and cried -
    The children ----their world is on a screen
    They play games – alone
    O - was it a dream
    When mama called me home
       
But that was then and now it's now
Everything changes, somehow
The house I live in
The world I live in
Everything changes - everything ... everything

 
O, you been gone so long
Memories fade
It's dark and I'm afraid
I'm your little girl child
Your own, your very own
Mama, it's late - time to call me home.

I'm your little girl child – out here alone

Mama, it's late - please call me home.
