Journey to Freedom: A Casebook with Music for a Free University
Edited by Landon Gerald Dowdey.
Chicago: Swallow Press, 1969.

This book includes the lyrics to "Pack Up Your Sorrows" and "Birmingham Sunday". It would be unremarkable except that it includes alternate lyrics for "Birmingham Sunday". An extra stanza, credited to Pete Seeger, replaces the last two stanzas of Richard's version. The Seeger lines are:

"I mind my own business
I watch my T.V.
Complain about taxes
but pay anyway
in a civilized manner
my forefathers betray
who long ago struggled for freedom."
