Peter Seeger (May 3, 1919 – January 27, 2014) was an American folk singer and social activist. A fixture on nationwide radio in the 1940s, he also had a string of hit records during the early 1950s as a member of the Weavers, most notably their recording of Lead Belly's "Goodnight, Irene", which topped the charts for 13 weeks in 1950
Folksinger and banjoist Peter Seeger has made other recordings, including as a member of the Almanac Singers in 1941-1942, but Darling Corey is his first solo album. Lomax acknowledges in his notes that Seeger himself was born in New York City, the son of a musicologist and a "longhair" violinist, and attended Harvard. It is not surprising that he makes no attempt to affect the kind of rural accent that might be expected in these songs. Instead, he picks his banjo steadily and renders the songs in a clear, direct manner, as if in the aural version of a musicologist's transcription.

Go away go away darling Corey Quit hanging around my bed Your liquor has ruined my body Pretty women gone to my head. Dig a hole dig a hole in the meadow Dig a hole in the cold cold ground Dig a hole dig a hole in the meadow Gonna lay darling Corey down. Can't you hear those bluebirds a singing Don't you hear that mournful sound They're preaching darling Corey's funeral In some lonesome graveyard ground. Wake up wake up Darlin Corey And go get me my gun I ain't no man for fightin' But I'll die before I run. More on Genius.
