Turn Turn Turn  Byrds

[C]To everything, [F]turn, [C]turn, [Dm]turn
There [Am]is a [C]season, [F]turn, [C]turn, [G]turn
[F]And a [C]time for [Em]every [Dm]purpose [G7]under [C]heaven
[1]C            G7              C  A time to be born, a time to die
A time to [G7]plant, a time to [C]reap
A time to [G7]kill, a time to [C]heal
A time to [F]laugh, a [G7]time to [C]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

NOTE: A slight change from the previous posting- I changed a few chords
and changed some words to make it more in line with the Byrds version.
