I had pneumonia, but went to the school in Huntington, NY for yet another benefit for something. It was just Harry, brother Tom and Pete Seeger. The band was still en-route from a tour.
Pete made Harry & Tom stand on chairs holding up a bed sheet on which he had written the lyrics to the song he was doing.
Harry tried to get his son to sing “Flowers are Red” with him but he was too shy and volunteered a friend.
After the concert, Harry was signing, and trying to sell out the “Harry it s__ks” T-shirts to make room for the “Harry, keep the change” new shirts. I was pretty sick, so left without getting mine signed. Not long after, Harry was killed.
I still have the shirt and the memories.
