All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir

Chorus: All God’s critters got a place in the choir

Some sing low, some sing higher

Some sing out loud on the telephone wire

Some just clap their hands, or paws,

or anything they got now.

1. Listen to the bass, it’s the one on the bottom

where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus

moans and groans with a big t’do,

and the old cow just goes MMMOOOOOOOOO!

Chorus

2. The dogs and the cats they take up the middle,

where the honeybee hums and the cricket fiddles

The donkey brays and the pony neighs

and the old coyote HOOOOOWWWLLLSS

Chorus

3. Listen to the top where the little birds sing

on the melodies with the high notes ringing.

The hoot owl hoots over everything.

And the jay bird DISAGREES.

Chorus

4. Singing in the night time, singing in the day,

the little duck quacks, then he’s on his way,

the possum ain’t got much to say,

and the porcupine talk to himself.

Chorus

5. It’s a simple song of living sung everywhere

by the ox and fox and the grizzly bear,

the grumpy alligator and the hawk above,

the sly raccoon and the turtle dove

Chorus

Michael Rowed the Boat Ashore

Michael rowed the boat ashore, Hallelujah!

Michael rowed the boat ashore, Hallelujah!

Sister helped to trim the sail, Hallelujah!

Sister helped to trim the sail, Hallelujah!

River is deep and the river is wide, Hallelujah!

Milk and honey on the other side, Hallelujah!

River Jordan is chilly and cold, Hallelujah!

Chills the body but not the soul, Hallelujah!

Michael’s boat’s a music boat, Hallelujah!

Michael’s boat’s a music boat, Hallelujah!

Gabriel blow the trumpet horn, Hallelujah!

Blow the trumpet loud and long, Hallelujah!

Trumpet sound for you and me, Hallelujah!

Michael rowed the boat ashore, Hallelujah!

Michael rowed the boat ashore, Hallelujah!

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,

was blind, but now I see.

Was Grace that taught my heart to fear,

and Grace my fears relieved;

how precious did that Grace appear

the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares

I already have come;

‘Tis Grace has brought me safe thus far,

and Grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me;

His Word my hope secures;

He will my shield and portion be

as long as life endures.

Rejoice in the Lord Always (ROUND)

Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice

Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice

Rejoice, Rejoice, and again I say rejoice.

Rejoice, Rejoice, and again I say rejoice.

Morning Has Broken Farjeon

Morning has broken like the firs morning,

Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.

Praise for the singing,

Praise for the morning.

Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet like rain’s new fall sunlit from heaven,

Like the first dew fall on the first grass.

Praise for the sweetness of he wet garden.

Spring in completeness where His feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning.

Born of the one light Eden saw play!

Praise with elation, praise every morning,

God’s recreation of the new day!

Philmont Hymn

Silver on the sage, Starlit skies above

Aspen covered hills, country that I love

Philmont here’s to thee, Scouting paradise

Out in God’s country, tonight.

Wind in whispering pines, eagles soaring high

Purple mountains rise, against an azure sky

Philmont here’s to thee, Scouting paradise

Out in God’s country tonight.

This Train

This train is bound for glory, This train,

This train is bound for glory, This train,

This train is bound for glory,

Don’t ride nothin’ but the good and the holy,

This train is bound for Glory, This train.

Sixteen Faces T1000/Holladay

(tune of “Sixteen Tons”)

1. Some people say a man is made outa mud,

A rock climber’s made outa muscles and blood

Feet like a spider, hands like a claw,

A mind that’s weak and a grip that is strong.

Chorus:

Ya Climb sixteen faces, and what do ya get,

Another busted up knee and a scraped up hand

Saint Peter don’t ya call me, cause I can’t go

I owe my soul to the REI store.

2. I was born one morning when the rain didn’t fall,

I picked up my harness and I hiked to the wall,

I climbed sixteen faces of 5.9 and

My belayer kept sayin’ “CLIMB ON!”

Chorus

3. If you see me climbing, better step aside,

A lot of men didn’t, a lot of men died.

Rock & biners fallin’ below,

If the tricams don’t get you, the rope drag will.

Chorus

I Cannot Go on the Campout T1000/Wilson

(tune of “The Wedding Banquet”)

Chorus:

I cannot go

I cannot go on the campout, don’t trouble me now

I have got me a job, I have bought me a car,

I find that girls and my commitments all cost a lot of dough

Please hold me excused, I cannot go.

1. The Greenbar said let’s all try to have the finest troop in town,

Lets go camping and go hiking and go caving underground.

So they planned all the outings and told all Scouts alike,

but when the campout day arrived, some Scouts simply replied,

Chorus

2. Scoutmaster rose up in wonder, called patrol leaders by name,

said go into the church, call the members all the same.

Fetch the straggler, and the sleeper, and those who just forgot,

Our campout isn’t crowded, let’s learn to tie a knot.

Chorus

3. When the troop had assembled, there was still room to spare.

All the chuck boxes were ready, all the tents had been repaired.

Load the gear into the trailer, then jump into a car,

this campout isn’t waiting, we’ll go just as we are.

Chorus

4. Every Scout will learn a lesson for the rest of his life;

If you’re slow in responding, you may get left behind.

Live for Scouting while you’re able, don’t let fun times slip away.

At each campfire’s glowing embers, be glad you didn’t say;

Chorus

Ghost Riders

1. An old cowpoke went riding out, one hot and windy day,

upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way,

When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw,

A-plowin’ through the ragged skies and up the cloudy draw.

Chorus:

Yip-I-ya-a, Yip-I-ya-o

Ghost riders in the sky.

2. Their brands were still on fire and their hooves

were made of steel,

Their horns were black and shiny and their hot

breath he could feel.

A bolt of fear went through him as they thundered

through the sky.

For as he saw the riders coming hard he could

hear their mournful cry.

Chorus

3. Their faces gaunt, their eyes were blurred, their shirts

all soaked with sweat.

They’re ridin’ hard to catch that herd, but they ain’t

caught them yet.

They’ve got to ride for-evermore on that range up in the sky,

On horses snorting fire, as they ride, I hear them cry.

Chorus

4. And as the riders loped on by, he heard them call his name,

If you want to save your soul from hell a-riding on the range.

Then cowboy better change your ways or with us you will ride,

Trying to catch the devil’s herd across the endless sky.

Chorus

Little Skunk Song

(tune of Dixie Land)

Well, I stuck my head in a little skunk hole,

and the little skunk said, “Well upon my soul, --

“Take it out! Take it out! Take it out! Remove it!

Now, I didn’t take it out and the little skunk said --

“If you don’t take it out, you’ll wish you were dead!”

“Take it out! Take it out! SSSSSSSSSSSS!!

-- I REMOVED IT!”

Scout Vespers

Softly falls the light of day,

as our campfire fades away.

Silently each Scout should ask

Have I done my daily task?

Have I kept my honor bright?

Can I guiltless sleep tonight?

Have I done and have I dared

Everything to be prepared?

Rocky Top

1. Wish that I was on ol’ Rocky Top, down in the Tennessee hills2. Once two strangers climbed ol’ Rocky Top, lookin’ for a moonshine still;

Ain’t no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top. Ain’t no telephone bills. Strangers ain’t come down from ol’ Rocky Top, reckon they never will.

Once I had a girl on Rocky Top, half bear, half wild cat; Corn don’t grow at all on Rocky Top, dirt’s too rocky by far,

wild as a mink, but sweet as soda pop, I still dream about that. That’s why all the folks on Rocky Top get their corn from a jar.

Chorus: Chorus

Rocky Top, you’ll always be home sweet home to me;3. I’ve had years of cramped up city life,

Good ol’ Rocky Top, Rocky Top Tennessee; Stuck like a duck in a pen.

Rocky Top Tennessee All I know is it’s a pity life

Can’t be simple again.

Chorus

The gold in its own native land

And the hot springs below, where the sick people go

To shoot game from my own cabin home

Then give me the camp where the fire is a lamp

In those wild western hills midst the ring of the drills

Oh let me live there till I die.

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 sting and sealing wax and other fancy stuff.

1. 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 e’er they came

Pirate ships let down their flag when Puff roared out his name.

Chorus

2. A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys

Giant stings and painted wings make way for other toys

One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more

Puff that mighty dragon ceased his fearless, mighty roar.

Chorus

Puff no longer came to play along the cherry lane

Without his lifelong friend Puff could not be brave

So Puff that magic dragon sadly slipped into his cave.

Chorus

Big as garden rakes Running through the rice

At the quartermaster’s store At the quartermasters store.

Chorus:Chorus

My eye’s are dim, I cannot see3. There are rats, rats

I have not got my specs with me Big as alley cats

I have not got my specs with me At the store, at the store

There are rats, rats

Big as alley cats

At the quartermaster’s store

The Cowboy’s Lament

As I walked out in the streets of Laredo, “Get sixteen gamblers to handle my coffin

As I walked out in Laredo one day, “Let six jolly cowboys come sing me a song

I spied a young cowboy all wrapped in white linen “Take me to the graveyard and lay the sod o’er me

All wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay.“For I’m a young cowboy and I know I’ve done wrong

“I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy”“Oh beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly

These words he did say as I boldly walked by;“Play the death march as you carry me along;

“Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story, “Put bunches of roses all over my coffin

“I’m shot in the breast and I know I must die. “ Put roses to deaden the clods as they fall

“Twas once in the saddle I used to go dashing, As I walked out in the streets of Laredo

“Twas once in the saddle I used to go gay;As I walked out in Laredo one day,

“First down to Rosie’s and then to the cardhouse; I spied a young cowboy all wrapped in white linen,

“Got shot in the breast and I’m dying today.All wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay.

And when boredom overtook us, he began to sing: “If you’re going to play the game, boy, you got to play it right.”

Chorus:Chorus

You’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em.4. Every gambler knows, there’s a secret to survivin’,

Know when to walk away, know when to run. You never count Knowin’ what to throw away, knowin’ what to keep.

your money, when you sittin’ at the table, there’ll be time enough Cause every hand’s a winner, and every hand’s a loser,

for counting, when the dealings done. And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.

2. He said, “Son, I made a life, out of readin’ peoples’ faces.Chorus

Knowing what the cards say by the way they held their eyes.

So if you don’t mind me sayin, I can see you’re out of aces5. And when he finished speaking, he turned back to the window,

For a taste of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice Crushed out his cigarette, and faded off to sleep.

And somewhere in the darkness, the gambler he broke even

Chorus And in his final words I found an ace that I could keep.

The Bear

(echo repeat each line)

The other dayThe lowest branch

I met a bearWas ten feet up

Out in the woodsI’d have to jump

Away out thereAnd trust my luck

He looked at me;And so I jumped

I looked at himInto the air

He sized up me;But right behind me

I sized up himwas that bear

He said to meNow don’t you fret

Why don’t you runAnd don’t you frown

I see you don’tCause I caught that branch

Have any gunOn the way back down

And so I ranThis is the end

Right out of thereThere ain’t no more

But right behindUnless I meet

Me was that bearThat bear once more

Ahead of me

I spied a tree

A great big tree

Oh lucky me

Does Your Chewing Gum Lose it’s Flavor on the

Bedpost Overnight?

1. Oh me, oh my, oh you, Whatever shall I do?

Whoop! Hallelujah! The question is peculiar and

I’d give a lot of dough, if only I could know, the answer to my

question - is it yes or is it no?

Chorus

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

And your mother says “Don’t chew it” -- do you swallow it in spite?

And do you catch it in your tonsils and heave it left and right?

Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

2. Here comes the blushing bride with a bride groom by her side.

Walk up to the altar just as steady as Gibraltar.

He went and bought a ring, well, it’s such a lovely thing,

and as he slips it on her finger, the choir begins to sing…

Chorus

3. Now this nation rolls as one to send their honest son,

Walk up to the White House, the nation’s only White House,

To voice their discontent on to the President.

This kindly burning question -- which has rocked the continent…

Chorus

Sixteen Tons

1. Now some people say a man’s made out of mud

But a poor man’s made our of muscle and blood

Muscle and blood, skin and bones,

A mind that’s weak and a back that’s strong

Chorus

You load sixteen tons and what do you get?

Another day older and deeper in debt.

Saint Peter, don’t you call me ‘cause I can’t go,

I owe my soul to the company store.

2. I was born one mornin’ when the sun didn’t shine,

I picked up my shovel and I walked to the mine

I loaded sixteen tons of number nine coal

And the strawboss hollered “Well, bless my soul!”

Chorus

3. Now when you see me comin’, you better step aside,

Another man didn’t and another man died,

I’ve got one fist of iron, the other of steel

If the right one don’t get you, the left one will.

Chorus

Junior Bird Men

(Tune of “On Brave Old Army Team”)

Up in the air Junior Birdmen

Up in the air upside down.

Up in the air Junior Birdmen

With your noses to the ground.

And when you hear that great announcement,

that the wings are made of tin,

Then you will know, Junior Birdmen,

That it’s time to send your box tops in.

It takes four box tops

Three bottle tops

Two wrappers

and….one….thin….dime

Up in the air Junior Birdmen

Up in the air upside down.

Up in the air Junior Birdmen

With your noses to the ground.

The Horses Run Around

The horses run around, their feet are on the ground

Oh, who will wind the clock while I’m a-way, a-way,

Go get the ax, there’s a hair on baby’s chin;

Oh, a boys best friend is his mother, his mother.

While looking out the window, a second story-story window,

I slipped and sprained my eyebrow on the pavement, the pavement

Go get the Listerine, sister has a beau,

Oh, who cut the sleeves off father’s vest, his vest.

A-peeking through a knothole, in grandpa’s wooden leg,

Oh, who has built the shore so near the ocean, the ocean,

Go get the alcohol, Billy wants a rub,

For grandma’s teeth will soon fit baby, fit baby.

While walking in the moonlight, the bright and sunny moonlight,

She kissed me in the eye with a tomato, tomato,

We feed the baby garlic so we find him in the dark,

An onion, is a husky vegetable, a table.

She spanked him with a shingle, and made his panties tingle.

Because he socked his little baby brother, his brother,

A snake belt slips because he has no hips,

And he wears his necktie round his middle, his middle.

Clementine

1. In a cavern, in a canyon4. Ruby lips above the water

Excavating for a mine. Blowing bubbles soft and fine

Dwelt a miner, ‘forty-niner But alas, I was no swimmer,

And his daughter Clementine So I lost my Clementine

ChorusChorus

Oh my darling, Oh my darling,5. Then the miner, ‘forty-niner,

2. Light she was and like a fairy,Chorus

And her shoes were number nine,

Herring boxes without topses6. In my dreams she still doth haunt me,

Sandals were for Clementine. Robed in garments soaked in brine.

Though in life I used to hug her,

Chorus Now she’s dead, I draw the line.

3. Drove she ducklings to the water,Chorus

Every morning just at nine

Hit her foot against a splinter,7. How I missed her, how I missed her,

Fell into the foaming brine How I missed my Clementine,

Then I kissed her little sister,

Chorus And forgot dear….what’s her name

Chorus

Bill Grogan’s Goat

(echo repeat each line)

Bill Grogan’s goat

Was feelin’ fine,

Ate three red shirts,

Right off the line.

I took a stick,

Gave him a whack

And tied him to

the railroad track

The whistle blew,

The train grew nigh

Bill Grogan’s goat,

was doomed to die

He gave three groans,

of awful pain,

Coughed up those shirts,

and flagged the train.

Singing we’re all together again, we’re here

Do Your Ears Hang Low

Do your ears hang low

Do they wobble to and fro

Can you tie them in a bow

Can you throw them o’er your shoulder,

Like a Continental soldier?

Do you ears --- hang --- low?

Fly Song

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly.

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly.

I guess she’ll die.

I know an old lady who swallowed a spider

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her.

She swallowed the spider to eat the fly,

But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly,

I guess she’ll die.

I know an old lady who swallowed a . . .

Found a Peanut (Tune of Clementine)

Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now

Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now

Broke it open, broke it open, broke it open just now

Broke it open, broke it open, broke it open just now

It was rotten …Died anyway ...

Ate it anyway …Went to Heaven ...

Got sick, got sink …Gates were locked ...

Went to the Doctor …Went to the other place ...

Gave me pill …Found a peanut ...

On Top of Old Smokey

On top of Old Smokey,

All covered in snow,

I lost my poor lover,

by courtin’ too slow.

Now, courtin’s a pleasure,

Partin’ is grief,

But a false hearted lover,

Is worse than a thief.

A thief, he will rob you,

And take all you have,

But a false hearted lover,

will lead you to the grave.

The grave will decay you,

And turn you to dust,

There ain’t one in a million

that a poor boy can trust.

They’ll hug you and kiss you,

And tell you more lies,

Than ties in a railroad,

or stars in the sky.

They’ll tell you they love you

to give your heart ease.

But as soon as your back’s turned,

They’ll court who they please

Come all you young maidens

and listen to me.

Never place affection

on a green willow tree.

For the leaves, they will wither.

And the roots they will die.

And lover will leave you

And you’ll never know why.

In what shall I fetch it?In a bucket.

There’s a hole in the bucket!!
