Camp Fire Songs

Country Roads by John Denver

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue ridge mountains, Shenandoah river
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze
Chorus – Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home
Country roads
All my memories, gather round her
Modest lady, stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye
Chorus
I hear her voice in the morning hour she calls me
Radio reminds me of my home far away
Driving down the road I get a feeling
That I should have been home yesterday, yesterday
Chorus 2x
Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia
Mountain mamma, take me home

“If”

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can’t I paint you?
The words will never show
The you I’ve come to know
If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go?
There’s no one home but you
You’re all that’s left me tooAnd when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on meIf a man could be two places at one time
I’d be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the wayIf the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly down to die
I’d spend the end with you
And when the world was through

Then one by one the stars would all go out
Then you and I would simply fly away


Baby, I Love Your Way
Peter Frampton
Shadows grow so long before my eyes
And they’re moving …across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night
Far away from the city
but don’t hesitate Cause your love won’t wait hey
Ooh baby I love your way every day
Want to tell you I love your way every day
Want to be with you night and day
Moon appears to shine and light the sky
With the help of some fireflies
I wonder how they have the power shine shine shine
I can see them under the pines
But don’t hesitate ’cause your love won’t wait hey
Ooh baby I love your way every day
Want to tell you I love your way every day
Want to be with you night and day uh yeah
But don’t hesitate ’cause your love won’t wait
I can see the sunset in your eyes
Brown and grey and blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun
Wish I could dry one out of season
But don’t hesitate ’cause your love won’t wait hey
Ooh baby I love your way every day
Want to tell you I love your way uuhh
Want to be with you night and day
Ooh baby I love your way every day
Want to tell you I love your way uuhh
Want to be with you night and day

Everything I Own

Bread
You sheltered me from harm, Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me, Set me free, set me free
The finest years I ever knew, Were all the years I had with you
And I would give anything I own
I’d give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own,
Just to have you back again
You taught me how to love  What it’s of, what it’s of
You never said too much, But still you showed the way
And I knew from watching you, Nobody else could ever know,
The part of me that can’t let go
And I would give anything I own,
I’d give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own,
Just to have you back again
Is there someone you know, Your loving them so,
But taking them all for granted?
You may lose them one day, Someone takes them away,
And they don’t hear the words you long to say
I would give anything I own,
I’d give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give everything I own,
Just to have you back again
Just to touch you once again
