Turn!  Turn!  Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season)

Words:  Ecclesiates 3:1-8

Music:  Pete Seeger


There is an arrangement of this in the October 2009 issue of Acoustic Guitar.  I've corrected the chords per that arrangement.



        D     G     G/F#  Em7

To everything turn, turn, turn,

           D       G     G/F#  Em7

There is a season; turn, turn, turn,

      A7                          D

And a time to every purpose under heaven.


             A7              D              A7               D

A time to be born, a time to die, a time to plant, a time to reap,

          A7              D               G  (Bm)  A7      D

A time to kill, a time to heal, a time to laugh, a time to weep.




A time to build up, a time to break down,

A time to dance, a time to mourn,

A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together.




A time of love, a time of hate, a time of war, a time of peace,

A time that you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing.




A time to gain, a time to lose, a time to rend, a time to sew,

A time to love, a time to hate,

A time for peace, I swear it's not too late.
