Jesse Collin Young sang his famous "Get Together" song at campaign event

He endorsed Beto this week and came to one of his campaign events to open the event. I always knew and liked the song, but didn't know the singer or his band, The Youngbloods. The chorus especially is a perfect fit for Beto and a good counter to Trump!

Lyrics:Get Together byThe Youngbloods

Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold…

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

I said, come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Right now
Right now

6. Great song, great version; neither Jessie nor the Youngbloods wrote it though

 

However it is the version and the sound that so many of us remember. I love the Youngbloods, saw them live a couple of times, they put on a wonderful show and Jesse's voice is pure gold. Their song "Darkness Darkness" still haunts me.

From Wiki:

"Get Together", also known as "Let's Get Together", is a song written in the mid-1960s by American singer-songwriter Chet Powers (stage name Dino Valenti)...

...The song was originally recorded as "Let's Get Together" by the Kingston Trio in a live performance in March 1964 that was released on June 1, 1964, on their album Back in Town."

The Ypungblood's version was first released in 1967.
