Too Much of Nothing" is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1967, first released by him on the album The Basement Tapes (1975). One of the most haunting themes of The Basement Tapes is an apprehension of the void. Shelton hears in this song an echo of the bald statement that Lear makes to his daughter Cordelia, "Nothing will come of nothing" (act I, scene 1). Marcus asserts that this was one of the songs recorded at the end of "the basement summer" in August or September 1967.
There’s no overstating just how much Peter, Paul & Mary contributed to the commercial clout of folk music in the ‘60s, whether smoothing out the crags in several Bob Dylan songs, making squirrelly pop tunes out of Pete Seeger ( If I Had a Hammer ) and Woody Guthrie ( This Land Is Your Land ) compositions, or playfully bridging the psychedelic and kid-friendly ( Puff, the Magic Dragon ). But despite their friendly, nonconfrontational image, the trio also delivered stunning protest songs in Cruel War and The Great Mandella (The Wheel of Life).
Chorus: Take your place on The Great Mandala As it moves through your brief moment of time. Win or lose now you must choose now And if you lose you're only losing your life. Tell the jailer not to bother With his meal of bread and water today. When a member of Peter, Paul and Mary their selections often reflected the same philosophies of story telling. Therefore, the song speaks to me on several levels. War, maybe, but not so much, but taking responsibility for our life. If you own Album 1700, the 6th song is: The Great Mandella (The Wheel Of Life). However, I agree that it is referring to the Buddhist beliefs as you specified. This causes, even today, lots of confusion.
