The Byrds was an American folk rock band formed in 1964. They were similar to the numerous British bands during that era. Their commercial successes were limited, 1965 - 1966. There were numerous changes to the lineup but Roger McGuinn aka Jim McGuinn remained the sole original member until the disbandment in 1973. David Crosby and Micheal Clarke left in 1967.
 
Turn Turn Turn performed 2/5/1966
 
 "Turn! Turn! Turn!"
 
To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

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

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

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

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late!
