Johnny Appleseed

With this song, we often changed the word Lord to Earth for the various religions and non-religious girls in the group.  It works just as well.

The Lord is good to me, and so I thank the Lord,
For giving me the things I need,
The sun and the rain and the appleseed,
The Lord is good to me.

And every seed that grows, shall grow into a tree.
And one day soon there’ll be apples there,
For everyone in the world to share,
The Lord is good to me.

Linger

Mmm Mmm I want to linger,
Mmm Mmm a little longer,
Mmm Mmm a little longer here with you.

Mmm Mmm it’s such a perfect night,
Mmm Mmm it’s doesn’t seem quite right,
Mmm Mmm that this she be my last with you.

Mmm Mmm and come September,
Mmm Mmm we’ll still remember,
Mmm Mmm our camping days and friendship true.

Mmm Mmm and as the years go by,
Mmm Mmm I’ll think of you and sigh,
Mmm Mmm this is good night and not goodbye.

Girl Scouts Together

Girl Scouts Together

Girl Scouts together, That is our song,
Winding the old trails, rocky and long.
Leaning our motto, living our creed,
Girl Scouts together in every good deed.

Girl Scouts together, Happy are we,
Friendly to neighbors far over the sea,
Faithful to country, loyal to home,
Known as true Girl Scouts wherever we roam.

Whene’er You Make a Promise

Whene'er You Make a Promise

This might have very well been one of the first songs I learned as a Brownie.  It’s a classic Girl Scout song that we sang all the way through Senior scouts.  It’s a very short song, but lovely.

Whene’er you make a promise,
Consider well it’s importance
And when made,
Engrave it upon your heart.

Camptown Races

Camptown Races

This song is also referred to as Camptown Ladies.  The doo-da is the most fun part of the song, at least for a young girl it was!

The Camptown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da
The Camptown racetrack’s five miles long
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin’ to run all night
Goin’ to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

Oh, the long tailed filly and the big black horse,
Doo-da, doo-da
Come to a mud hole and they all cut across,
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin’ to run all night
Goin’ to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray

I went down there with my hat caved in,
Doo-da, doo-da
I came back home with a pocket full of tin
Oh, de doo-da day

Goin’ to run all night
Goin’ to run all day
I bet my money on a bob-tailed nag
Somebody bet on the gray
