Subject: Re: REQ:  The Byrds  "Turn, turn, turn"

As far as I can remember the chords and lyrics are something like:-

Chorus
C              F     C     Dm
To everything, turn, turn, turn
      Am   C       F     C     G
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
F     C        Em    Dm      G7    C
And a time for every purpose under heaven


1)
C            G7              C  A time to be born, a time to die
          G7               C
A time to plant, a time to reap
          G7              C
A time to kill, a time to heal
          F        G7      C
A time to laugh, a time to weep

Chorus

2)
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

Chorus

3)
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

Chorus

4)
A time to gain, a time to loose
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

Chorus

I think I originally got the chords from the Pete Seeger version so they
might not be quite right for The Byrds - especially the last line of the
verse. The timing for each verse has to be adjusted to fit the lyrics but
this should give you some idea - hopefully
