These are the songs Pete Seeger sang for America, songs every school child and summer camp attendee learned to sing and now sing with their children and grandchildren. The five-volume American Favorite Ballads (issued 1957 to 1962) is a cornerstone of Seeger’s work with Folkways Records. This CD concludes this reissue series of digitally remastered recordings, including not only the complete original set but many more songs from other Seeger albums of the same era, including the 1954 Frontier Ballads collection, which makes up most of this volume. 36-page booklet, 29 tracks, 67 minutes.
Lyric transcriptions as permissible by the publisher available here.
