ALL NIGHT, ALL DAY
Now I lay me down to sleep
Angels watchin' over me, my Lord
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
Angels watchin' over me

chorus:
All night, all day
Angels watchin' over me my Lord
All night, all day
Angels watchin' over me

If I die before I wake
Angels watchin' over me, my Lord
Pray the Lord my soul to take
Angels watchin' over me

AMERICA
My country 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims pride
From every mountainside let freedom ring

My native country, thee
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love
I love thy rocks and hills
Thy woods and templed hills,
My heart with rapture thrills
Like that above

ASH GROVE
Down yonder green valley
Where streamlets meander
When twilight is fading
I pensively rove
Or at the bright moontide
In solitude wander
Amid the dark shades
Of the lonely ash grove
'Tis there where the blackbird
Is cheerfully singing
Each warbler enchants
With his notes from the tree;
Ah, then little think I
Of sorrow or sadness
The ash grove entrancing
Spells beauty for me

The ash grove how graceful
How plainly 'tis speaking
The harp thro' it playing
Has language for me
Whenever the light thro'
Its branches is breaking
A host of kind faces
Is gazing at me
The friends of my childhood
Again are before me
Each step wakes a mem'ry
As freely I roam
With soft whispers laden
Its leaves rustle o'er me
The ash grove, the ash grove
Alone is my home

BARGES
Out of my window looking in the night
I can see the barges flickering light
Silently flows the river to the sea
And the barges too go silently

chorus:
Barges, I would like to go with you
I would like to sail the ocean blue
Barges, have you treasures in your hold?
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?

Out of my window looking in the night
I can see the barges flickering light
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red
I can see the barges far ahead

chorus

How I would love to sail away with you
As you sail across the ocean blue
but I must stay beside my window drear
As I watch you sail away from here.

BROOMSTICK COWBOY
Dream on little broomstick cowboy
Dream on while you can
Of big green frogs and puppy dogs
Castles in the sand
Dream on little broomstick cowboy
Of rocket ships and Mars
Sunny days and Willie Mayes
Chocolate candy bars
But all too soon you'll wake up
Your toys will all be gone
Your broomstick will ride away
To find another home
And then you'll have to learn to hate
And you'll have to learn to kill
It's always been that way my son
I guess it always will
And then one day you'll go to war
And you'll hear your brother cry
And through it all you'll wonder
Why did he have to die
So dream on little broomstick cowboy
Dream on while you can
For all to soon an awful thing
My sone you'll be a man

CANADIAN WILDERNESS
Life of a voyager
That of a sojourner
Traveling around and round
But not from town to town
Paddles the lakes and streams
Follows the distant dreams
Peace on the waterway
Blue sky and cloudy day

chorus:
My heart has just one home
From which I'll never roam
Land of true happiness
Canadian Wilderness

Cry of the lonely loon
Coyotes yapping at the moon
Wind rustling through the trees
That's a Canadian breeze
Smoke rising from the fire
Up to the sky in a stately spire
All is well as evening lows
Sun goes down as north wind blows

chorus

Majestic mountains rise
Up to the endless skies
See the wild bird on its wing
Hear the freedom song they sing
Up at the break of dawn
Out til the moonlight comes
God knows my wandering ways
And where I'll end my days

chorus

Sun on a raincloud beams
Sending sundrops down in streams
Rainbow is the eastern sky
Frames the wild geese flying by
Rolling waves of prairie grass
Made by the wind that's drifting past
This land and me are twins
Wandering soul and prairie winds

CLEMENTINE
In a cavern, in a canyon
Excavating for a mine
Dwelt a miner, forty-niner
And his daughter, Clementine

chorus:
Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Light she was, and like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes without topses
Sandals were for Clementine

chorus

Drove she ducklings to the water
Every morning just at nine
Hit her foot against a splinter
Fall into the foaming brine

chorus

Ruby lips above the water
Blowing bubbles soft and fine
Alas for me, I was no swimmer
So I lost my Clementine.

COMRADES
Listen comrades, to a story
That began some time ago
About a group of willing people
Anxious cuz they didn't know
Just what they were headed into
The adventures they would face
On the first night of this story
Questions on each tired face.

chorus:
But we were all in this together
And soon we came to see
That loving isn't painful
With people like you and me
We will all be on our way
To places we call home
But the magic we've discovered
Will be treasures all our own.

chorus

As the hours slipped to days
Bonds of friendship came to grow
We are different. How did it happen?
Only Pahasaurus knows
Yes, we've laughed and yes, we've groaned
And yes, at times we may have cried
At times we fell short of our goals
But our campers know we always tried

chorus

Look around at all these faces
Children now but not for long
Memories of these times are with them
Laughter, friendships, dreams and songs
Some are quiet, others lively
But we wouldn't trade a one
Each one gives us something special
Warms us like the morning sun

the DANCING LESSON
GRETEL:
Brother come and dance with me
Both my hands I offer thee
Right foot first, left foot then
'Round about and back again

HANSEL:
I would dance but don't know how
When to jump or when to bow
Show me what I ought to do
So that I may dance like you

GRETEL:
With your foot you tap, tap, tap
With your hands you clap, clap, clap
Right foot first, left foot then
'Round about and back again

With you head you nick, nick, nick
With your fingers you click, click, click
Right foot first, left foot then
'Round about and back again

That was very good indeed
Oh, I'm sure you'll soon succeed
Try again and I can see

DONA
On a wagon bound for market
There's a calf with an mournful eye
High above him there's a swallow
Winging swiftly through the sky

chorus:
How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night.
Dona Dona, Dona Dona Dona, Dona
Dona Dona Dona Done
Dona Dona Dona, Dona
Dona Dona Dona Done

Stop complaining said the farmer
Who told you a calf to be?
Why don't you have wings to fly with?
Like the swallow so proud and free

chorus

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
But whoever treasures freedom
Like the swallow, must learn to fly

chorus

When you're young and when you're free
Like the swallow you learn to fly
But when you are old and weary
Like the calf you must learn to die

theme from GRIZZLY ADAMS
Deep inside the forest
There's a door into another land
Here is our life and home
We are staying
If forever in the beauty of this place
All alone
To keep on hoping

Hey there*
There's a place where we don't have to run
And hey there*
There's a time we'll call our own
Living free in harmony in majesty
Take me home, take me home
Take me home, take me home

the GROWING UP TREE
Oh, Julie and Judy and Janie and Joan
Were all very little but wished they were grown
So they got together and all did agree
That they would go hunting the growing up tree
They looked high and low in the street and the park
They looked in the light and they looked in the dark
Till they met a wise woman who said then that she
Would help them to search for the growing up tree
The growing up tree, the growing up tree
The wonderful mystical growing up tree

The wise woman smiled and she gave them her hand
She said, "Let us join in a bright happy band
For the growing up tree we will hunt every day
And we'll learn about living as we go on our way
The growing up tree is not easy to find
You must hunt with you heart you must hunt with you mind
You must learn to be patient and learn to be wise
For the thing that you seek is a wonderful prize"
The growing up tree, the growing up tree
The wonderful mystical growing up tree

They hunted for many a year and a day
And the wise woman smiled as they went on their way
For she knew as she watched them grow wise and grow tall
That the groing up tree grew inside of them all
Yes the growing up tree grows inside of you too
Make it bloom with the things that you learn and you do
ANd wonder of wonders you soon will be grown
Like Julie and Judy and Janis and Joan
Come along now with me, A Girl Scout you'll be
And together we'll hunt for the growing up tree

HAPPINESS
Happiness is two kinds of ice cream
Finding you skate key, telling the time
Happiness is learning to whistle
Tying your shoe for the very first time
Happiness is playing the drum In your own school band
And happiness is walking hand in hand

Happiness is five different crayons
Knowing a secret climbing a tree
Happiness is finding a nickel
Catching a firefly, setting it free
Happiness is being alone every now and then
And happiness is coming home again
Happiness is morning and evening,
Daytime and nighttime too
For happiness is anyone and anything at all
That's loved by you

Happiness is having a sister
Sharing a sandwich getting along
Happiness is singing together
When day is through
And happiness is those who sing with you
Happiness is morning and evening
Daytime and nighttime too
For happiness is anyone and anything at all
That's loved by you

HAPPINESS RUNS IN A CIRCULAR MOTION

You can have everything

HE'S GONE AWAY
He's gone away
For to stay a little while

And who will kiss my ruby lips

Look away
Look away over Yandro

I KNOW A PLACE
I know a place where noone ever goes
There's peace and quiet beauty and repose
It's hidden in a valley
Beside a mountain stream
And lying there beside the stream

Only of things of beauty to the eye
Snow peaked mountains
A tow'ring to the sky
Now I know that God made this place for me
I know that God made this place for me

I TALK TO THE TREES
I talk to the trees
But they don't listen to me
I talk to the stars
But they never hear me
The breeze hasn't time
To stop and hear what I say
I talk to them all in vain
But suddenly my words
Reach someone else's ear
Touch someone else's heartstrings too
I tell you my dreams
And while you're list'ning to me
I suddenly see them come true
I can see us on an April night
Lookin' out across a rollin' farm
Havin' supper in the candlelight
Walkin' later arm in arm
Then I'll tell you how I passed the day
Thinkin' mainly how the night would be
And I'll try to find the words to say
All the things you mean to me

IT'S A LONG ROAD TO FREEDOM
chorus:
It's a long road to freedom
Winding steep and high
But when you live in love
With the wind on your wing
Cover the earth with the song you sing
THe miles fly by

I walked on morning by the sea
And all the waves reached out to me
I felt their tears and let them be

chorus

I walked one morning at the door
While bits of night still lingered on
I sought my star, but it was gone

chorus

I walked one morning with a friend
And prayed the day would never end
The years have flown, so I pretend

I walked one morning wih my King
And all my winters turned to spring
Yet every moment held its sting

To everyone
Thought he mountains divide
And the oceans are wide

JULIE ANNE
The sunny side of Shady Mountain
THat's the way it all began
There once lived the fairest maiden
And her name was Julie Anne

Julie's beau was tall and handsome
Just a poor boy with treasures few
But he promised rings of silver
Just to prove his love was true
chorus:
Have you seen her in the moonlight
Silver rings upon her hands
Now she wears a crown of sorrow
And her name is Julie Anne

Wake me early in the morning
'Ere the birds begin to sing
I'll get silver from the mountain
And I'll fashion you a ring

Off he rode across the mountain
Where the fields are wet with dew
Then instead he rode around it
Went a courtin' Jennie Lou

chorus

The cabin door was standing open
On that dark and dreary night
The old hound dog he lay a dyin'
In the gloomy candlelight

They found a broken empty rifle
And the shawl she used to wear
But they never found poor Julie
Never found, they never found
The hungry bear

MANY A NEW DAY
Why should a woman who is healthy and strong
Blubber like a baby 'cause her man's gone away
Weepin' and a wailin' how he's done her wrong
That's one thing you'll never hear me say
Never gonna think that a man I lose
Is the only man among men
I'll snap my fingers to show I don't care
I'll buy me a brand new dress to wear
I'll scrub my neck and I'll brush my hair
And start all over again

Many a new face will please my eye
Many a new love will find me
Never have I once looked back to sigh
Over the romance behind me
Many a new day will dawn before I do
Many a light lad may kiss and fly
A kiss gone by is by-gone
Never have I asked an August sky
Where has last July gone
Never have I wandered through the rye
Wonderin' where has some guy gone
Many a new day will dawn before I do

Never have I chased the honeybee
Who carelessly cajoled me
Somebody else just as sweet as he
Cheered me and consoled me
Never have I wept into my tea
Over the deal someone doled me
Many a new day will dawn
Many a red sun will set
Many a blue moon will shine before I do

To get a fire going
And soon all those around
Can warm up in its glowing

Once you've experienced it
You want to sing it's fresh like Spring

This happiness that I have found
You can depend on him
It matters not where you're bound

PUFF THE MAGIC DRAGON
chorus:
Puff the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In a land called Honnilee

Little Jackie Paper, loved that rascal Puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax
And other fancy stuff

Together they would travel
On a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched
On Puff's gigantic tail
Noble kings and princes
Would bow when'er they came
Pirate ships would lower their flags
When Puff roared out his hame

A dragon lives forever
But not so little boys
Giant strings and painted wings
Make way for other toys
One grey night it happened
Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon
Ceased his fearless roar

His head was bent in sorrow
Green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer came to play
Along the Cherry Lane
Without his lifelong friend
Puff could not be brave
So Puff, that mighty dragon
Sadly slipped into his cave

And the cowboy that love you so true

Won't you think of the valley you're leaving
Oh, how lonely, how sad it will be
Oh, think of the fond heart you're breaking
And the grief you are causing me

chorus

From this valley they say you are going
When you go may your darling go, too?
Would you leave her behind unprotected
When she loves no other but you?

chorus

Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Rock-a my soul in the bosom of Abraham
Oh, Rock-a my soul

So high you can't get over it
So low you can't get under it
So wide you can't get around it
you must go in at the door

SEEK YE FIRST
Seek ye first the kingdom of God
And His righteousness
And all these things
Shall be added unto you
Allelu, Alleluia

Ask and it shall be given unto you
Seek and ye shall find
Knock and the door
Shall be opened unto you
Allelu, Alleluia

SING A RAINBOW
Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, too

Listen with your eyes
Listen with your eyes
Sing everything you see
You can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow, sing along with me

Red and yellow and pink and green
Purple and orange and blue
I can sing a rainbow
Sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, too

SPOON RIVER
The meadow is flooded with white daffodils
The brook babbles on as it flows to the hills
They haunt me, they hunt me wherever I roam
Spoon River, Spoon River is calling me home

No matter how far I may wander away
Or what ne land I find at the end of each day
I'm haunted, I'm hunted wherever I roam
Spoon River, Spoon River is calling me home

But once having left you can never return
There is no going back there is only the yearn
You're haunted, you're hunted wherever you roam
Spoon River, Spoon River is calling you home

For the river is time and it flows toward the sea
And in leaving its banks you are free, you are free
But you're haunted, you're hunted wherever you roam
Spoon River, Spoon River is calling you home

SWING LOW, SWEET CHARIOT
chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home
A band of angels, coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

chorus

Well, sometimes up and sometimes down
Coming for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
Coming for to carry me home

chorus

If you get there before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends I'm coming too
Coming for to carry me home

TAPS
(nighttime version)


Day is done
Gone the sun
From the lake
From the hill
From the sky
All is well
Safely rest
God is nigh

(daytime version)


Thanks and praise
For our days
'Neath the sun
'Neath the stars
'Neath the sky
As we go
This we know
God is nigh

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
chorus:
This land is your land
This land is my land
From California
To the New York island
From the redwood forest
To the Gulfstream waters
This land was made for you and me

As I was walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me that golden valley
This land was made for you and me

chorus

I've roamed and rambled
And I followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of
Her diamond deserts
And all around me
A voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

chorus

When the sun comes shining
And I was strolling
And the wheat fields waving
And the dust clouds rolling
As the fog was lifting
A voice was chanting
This land was made for you and me

chorus



Back

TODAY
chorus:
Today while the blossoms
Still cling to the vine
I'll taste your strawberries
I'll drink your sweet wine
A million tomorrows
Shall all pass away
'Ere I forget
All the joy that is mine, today

I'll be a dandy and I'll be a rover
You'll know who I am
By the song that I sing
I'll feast at your table
I'll sleep in you clover
I'll laugh and I'll cry and I'll sing

chorus

I can't be contented
With yesterday's glory
I can't live on promises
Winter to Spring
Today is my moment and now is my story
Who cares what tomorrow will bring

chorus

WALK, SHEPARDESS, WALK
Walk, shephardess, walk
And I'll walk too
To find the ram with the ebony horn
And the gold-footed ewe
The lamb with the fleece of silver
Like summer sea foam
And the wether* with the crystal bell
That brings them all home
So walk, shephardess, walk
And I'll walk too
And if we never find them
Then I shan't mind, shall you?

*wether - a type of sheep

WANDERTHIRST
Beyond the east the sunrise
Beyond the west the sea
And east and west the wanderthirst
That will not let me be
It works in me like madness dear
To bid me say goodbye
For the seas call
And the stars call
And, oh, the call of the sky

I know not where the white road runs
Nor what the blue hills are
But a man can have the sun for a friend
And for his guide a star
For there's no end to voyaging
When once the call is heard
For the rivers call and the roads call
And oh, the call of the bird

Beyond the long horizon lies
And there by night and day
THe old ships draw to home again
And the young ships sail away
Come I may but go I must
And if men ask you why
You may put the blame on the sun
And the stars and the white road and the sky

WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE
Where have all the flowers gone
Long time passing
Where have all the flowers gone
Long time ago
Where have all the flowers gone
Youn girls picked them every one
When will they ever learn
When will they ever learn

Where have all the young girls gone
Gone to young men every one

Where have all the young men gone
Gone to soldiers every one

Where have all teh soldiers gone
Gone to graveyards every one

Where have all the graveyards gone
Gone to flowers every one

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happ when skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other night dear, as I ay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head and I cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happ when skies are grey
You'll never know dear, how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
