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 Litany O Lord, our God, we lift up our hearts to you. O Lord, our God, your people rejoice in you. God of the living. God of all people. Father of life, we lift up our hearts to you. Repeat Rejoice in the Lord Always (ROUND) Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice Rejoice, Rejoice, and again I say rejoice. Repeat 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.

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 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.

T1000 CAMPFIRE SONGS - FUN - SHEET 5 PAGE 1 Old Buffalo Press 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.

Cow:I don’t know how she swallowed a cow. Horse: She died of course! 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.
