Where Have All The Flowers Gone?

In memory of Pete Seeger, a two-uke rendition of one of his best-known tunes. Video here if you're interested.

One of the best examples of "four chords and the truth" you'll come across, I think (OK, technically there are six chords in this song, whatever). This song is incredibly simple and easy to pick up (I heard it for the first time about an hour before I recorded this), and yet very effective. I particularly like that it's not purely sad and wistful, but there's a strong edge of hope running through it.
