Where Have All The Flowers Gone?


by Pete Seeger
(with additional verses by Joe Hickerson)


Where have all the flowers gone? - long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone? - lone time ago
Where have all the flowers gone? - girls have picked them every one
When will they ever learn?  When will they ever learn?

G - - - / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - /  x4  /  x4  / 
C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / D - - - / G - - - /    //

Where have all the young girls gone? - long time passing
Where have all the young girls gone? - long time ago
Where have all the young girls gone? - they've taken a husband every one
When will they ever learn?  When will they ever learn?

Where have all the young men gone? - long time passing
Where have all the young men gone? - long time ago
Where have all the young men gone? - gone for soldiers every one
When will they ever learn?  When will they ever learn?

Where have all the soldiers gone? - long time passing
Where have all the soldiers gone? - long time ago
Where have all the soldiers gone? - gone to the graveyard every one
When will they ever learn?  When will they ever learn?

Where have all the graveyards gone? - long time passing
Where have all the graveyards gone? - long time ago
Where have all the graveyards gone? - gone to flowers every one
When will they ever learn?  When will they ever learn?
