Pete Seeger - Wimoweh & Flowers Gone

This is from a controversial episode of the Smothers Brothers. Originally, Pete sang his song "Waist Deep In The Big Muddy" in between these two songs but CBS deemed it too political to air and deleted it from the broadcast. However, he did perform the song on a subsequent broadcast and this time CBS allowed it to air.
