rich r Lyr Add: My Father's Mansion (Pete Seeger) (14) RE: My Father's Mansion 20 Jul 99

Song was recorded by Pete on his albums "Banks of Marble" and "Waist Deep In The Big Muddy" Here's three more verses, well actually 2 1/4 since one is very much like the first. These are verses 3, 5 and 6 as printed in Where Have All The Flowers Gone. The verses above are 1,2,4 and 7

What is a room without a door
Which sometimes locks or stands ajar?
What is a room without a wall
To keep out sight and sound from all?

Yes and each room has its own design
To suit the owner's state of mine
And those who'd want them all the same
Don't understand -- the human game.

My family's mansions many rooms
Have room for all of His children
If we do but share in His love
And see that all are free
