Pete Seeger: Turn! Turn! Turn!

Pete Seeger: Turn, Turn, Turn l PianoDiana


When I think of folk songs, I immediately picture Pete Seeger with his guitar. I grew up in an era of so many talented artists like Pete and the Kingston Trio. Playing Turn, Turn, Turn on the piano is an easy way for me to get out of my music and play this easy progression in all the keys. Can you do that? Have you learned what chords you have in common with the key that you are playing in and where you plan to modulate to? How do you know what transition chord to play?

                C   F      Em     Dm
To everything, turn, turn, turn,
                  C         F     Em     Dm
There is a season, turn, turn, turn,
 F           G                    Dm     G          C           
And a time for every purpose under heaven.

                     G7                    C                    G7                   C
 A time to be born, a time to die, a time to plant, a time to reap,
                    G7                 C
    a time to kill, a time to heal,
                     G           C          F
    a time to laugh, a time to weep.  

 CHORUS

                            G7                               C
 A time to build up, a time to break down;
                     G7                        C
 a time to dance a time to mourn;
         G7                       C
 a time to cast away stones,
                     G F         Em G/D Dm C F Em            
 a time to gather stones together.  

CHORUS

                     G7                     C               G7                     C
 A time of love, a time of hate, a time of war, a time of peace,
         G7                   C
 a time you may embrace,
                    G  F         G   C F Em
 a time to refrain from embracing.  

CHORUS

                 G7                     C                     G7                C
 A time to gain, a time to lose, a time to rend a time to sew,
                  G7                    C
 a time to love, a time to hate,
                  G F           G                       C
 a time for peace, I swear it's not too late.
