Favorite Girl Scout Campfire Songs For Guitar


___________________________________________________

A little bit about this site...

My name is Sara, and I am a Senior Girl Scout from Troop 1031 in the Citrus Council of Girl Scouts in Orlando, Florida. This site is my fulfillment of a service project requirement for the Exploring the Net IPA. Over the past couple of years I have been enthusiastically learning to play the guitar, and I got the idea for this site upon realizing how difficult it is to find chords to songs like these all together on one site. Many of these songs I couldn't find chords to at all, and simply made some up. Check out the MP3s. For the sake of disk space and download-time, I don't always include all the verses.
___________________________________________________
Another note on these chords- you may notice how on the MP3s (or if you try to sing the songs yourself) many of the chords I've given end up forcing you to sing really low. Which is good for people who can't sing very high. But if you want it higher, either slap a capo on or you can easily transpose the chords I've given. e.g. C-D-G becomes A-B-E (C comes right before D as A comes right before B; there are two steps between D and G as there are two steps between B and E).

***IMPORTANT***
I did not write the lyrics or music to any of these songs. I do not claim ownership to any of this material. The chords I have put with these lyrics are simply an interpretation and are in no way official.

MY REINDEER FLIES SIDEWAYS (MP3)

G----Em---------C------D---C-----Em----------D
My reindeer flies sideways, she's better than yours
G----Em--------C---Em---C-------D-------G
My reindeer can cha-cha, she can open up doors

My reindeer is purple, yours is pea-green
My reindeer's a Girl Scout, she can dig a latrine.

My reindeer wears PJs, yours sleeps in the nude
My reindeer has manners, your reindeer is crude.

Your reindeer uses fire starters, my reindeer uses just one match
Your reindeer gets chilly, mine wears a scarf and hat.

My reindeer wears a poncho, your reindeer gets wet
My reindeer is healthy, yours goes to the vet.

My reindeer flies sideways, yours flies upside down
My reindeer is perfect, your reindeer is dead.

TOM THE TOAD (MP3)

----D-------------A7--D
Oh Tom the Toad, oh Tom the Toad
-------------Em----A7-----D
Why did you jump into the road? (x2)

-------------G--------------A7
You used to be so green and fat
-----------------D
But now you're small and red and flat

Oh Tom the Toad, oh Tom the Toad
Why did you jump into the road?

You did not see that bus ahead
And you were flattened by its tread
Oh Tom the Toad, oh Tom the Toad
Why did you jump into the road?

You used to be so cautious
But now you make me nauseous
Oh Tom the Toad, oh Tom the Toad
Why did you jump into the road?

[optional verses with other animals]

Oh Sue the Skunk, oh Sue the Skunk
Why did you make my tires go clunk?
You did not look from east to west
Now on the road there's such a mess
Oh Sue the Skunk, oh Sue the Skunk
Why did you make my tires go clunk?

Oh Sam the Snake, oh Sam the Snake
Why did you lie out there and bake?
You did not see that truck go by
Now you look like a butterfly
Oh Sam the Snake, oh Sam the Snake
Why did you lie out there and bake?

Oh Possum Pete, oh Possum Pete
There's nothing left but hair and feet.
You thought you'd beat that bus across
Now you look like a pile of moss
Oh Possum Pete, oh Possum Pete
There's nothing left but hair and feet.

BARGES (MP3)

-A----------D------E--------------------------A--------D------A----E----A
Out of my window looking in the night, I can see the barges' flickering light
-A--D--------------E--------------------------A---D------A--E--A
Silently flows the river to the sea, and the barges too go silently.

(chorus)
Barges, I would like to sail 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, you can see them flickering far ahead.

(chorus)

Out of my tent flap looking in the night, I can see my leaders having a fight
Pillows and feathers flying everywhere, I can see my leaders' underwear.
Leaders, I would like to fight with you, I would like to get a black eye too.
Leaders, have you treasures to behold? Do you fight with Girl Scouts brave and bold?

BLACK SOCKS (MP3)

-G-----E------------D---------C----------G---------E--------------D-----------C
Black socks, they never get dirty, the longer you wear them the blacker they get.
-G---E----------D--------C-----------------G----------E----D-----------C
Someday I'll probably launder them, but something keeps telling me don't do it yet
--G---C---G---C---G---C
(not yet, not yet, not yet)

[This one is fun to do as a round.]

GIRL SCOUT CAMP (MP3)

(chorus)
-G----------------C---------------------D-----------------------------C----D------G
Girl Scout Camp, Girl Scout Camp! Oh please Mom, don't send me to Girl Scout Camp!

------G-------------------------------C
The leaders that they give you, they say they're mighty fine
------D-------------------------------------C---------D-----G
But when they take their makeup off they look like Frankenstein

(chorus in between each verse)

The nurses that they give you, they say they're mighty fine
But when you break a finger, they break the other nine

The donuts that they give you, they say they're mighty fine
But one rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

The toilets that they give you, they say they're mighty fine
But when you go to flush them, they cut off your behind

The water that they give you, they say it's mighty fine
But when you take a sip of it, it tastes like turpentine

The lifeguards that they give you, they say they're mighty fine
But when you say you're drowning, they say you're doing fine

-G------------C------------D------C
Deep in the jungle where nobody goes

There's a boogie woogie washer woman washing her clothes
---------G----------C------------D-----------C
With a scrub-a-dub here, and a scrub-a-dub there
------D-----------------------------D-----C---G
The boogie woogie washer woman's washing her hair

Me, Tarzan, You, Jane
Flying through the air like an aeroplane

------G----------------------------------------D
The window, the window, the second story window
---------D---------------------------------------C---------D---------G
With a heave and a ho and a mighty blow she threw him out the window!

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet, eating her curds and way
Along came a spider and sat down beside her, she threw it out the window!

(chorus between each verse)

Mary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went she threw it out the window!

Little Jack Horner sat in the corner eating his Christmas pie
He stuck in his thumb and pulled out a plumb and threw it out the window!

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses and all the king's men threw him out the window!

Old King Cole was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was he
He called for his pipe and he called for his bowl and he threw them out the window!

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to fetch her poor dog a bone
When she got there the cupboard was bare so she threw it out the window!
