• This Land is Your Land 
     
    This land is your land, this land is my land,

    from California to the New York island,

    From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters;

    This land was made for you and me!

     

    As I went walking that ribbon of highway,

    I saw above me that endless skyway.

    I saw below me that golden valley,

    This land was made for you and me!

     

    This land is your land, this land is my land,

    from California to the New York island,

    From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters;

    This land was made for you and me!

     

    I've roamed and rambled and I followed my footsteps

    to the sparkling sands of her diamond desserts,

    and all around me a voice was sounds,

    This land was made for you and me!

     

    This land is your land, this land is my land,

    from California to the New York island,

    From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters;

    This land was made for you and me!

    (This land is your land, this land is mine,

    from Maine to Montana, desert to the shore,

    we sing that this land is your land, this land is mine,

    yes it's made for you and me!)

     

    When the sun comes shining and I was strolling

    and the wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling,

    As the fog was lifting a voice was chanting,

    This land was made for you and me!

     

    This land is your land, this land is my land,

    from California to the New York island,

    From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters;

    This land was made for you and me!

    (This land is your land, this land is mine,

    from Maine to Montana, desert to the shore,

    we sing that this land is your land, this land is mine,

    yes it's made for you and me!)

    This land was made for you and me!

     

     
     
    Canoe Song
     
    My paddle's keen and bright, flashing with silver
    Follow the wild goose flight, dip dip and swing. 
     
    Dip dip and swing her back, flashing with silver
    Follow the wild goose flight, dip dip and swing. 
     
     
    Simple Gifts
     
    Tis the gift to be simple, tis the gift to be free,
    tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
    and when we find ourselves in the place just right,
    'twill be in the valley of love and delight.
     
    When true simplicity is gained,
    to bow and to bend we shant be ashamed,
    to turn, turn, will be our delight,
    till by turning turning we come round right.
     
     
     
    Erie Canal
     
     
     
     I've got a mule, her name is Sal,
    15 miles down the Erie Canal.
    She's a good old worker and a good old pal!
    15 miles down the Erie Canal.
    We've hauled some barges in our day,
    filled with lumber, coal, and hay,
    and we know every inch of the way,
    from Albany to Buffalo, Oh...
    Low bridge, everybody down!
    Low bridge, cause we're coming to a town.
    And you'll always know your neighbor, 
    you'll always know your pal,
    if you've ever navigated on the Erie Canal!
     
    Wah, wah, wah, wah
    Hear the trumpets playing on the Erie Canal.
    Wah, wah, wah, wah
    Making lots of music on the Erie Canal.
    Workin' hard throughout the day,
    After work, we sing and play.
    Wah, wah, wah, wah
    playing on the trumpet and the old bango,so...
    Everybody come and listen to the music,
    everybody dance with your best friend,
    Trumpets will be playing, people will be swaying,
    All along the Erie Canal!
     
     
    I Love the Mountains
     
     
    I love the mountians, I love the rolling hills,
    I love the flowers, I love the daffodils,
    I love the fireside, when all the lights are low,
    boom-de-ada,  boom-de-ada, boom-de-ada, boom-de-ada,
    boom-de-ada,  boom-de-ada, boom-de-ada, boom-de-ada.
     
     50 States in Rhyme
     
    When I was small I studied US geography.
    The teacher said, "Would you stand up and list the states for me?"
    My knees began a knockin', my words fell out all wrong,
    then suddenly, I burst out, with this silly little song...
     
     
    Alabama and Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas,
    California, Colorado, and Connecticut and more!
    Delaware, Florida, Georgia, then Hawaii, Idaho,
    Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, still 39 to go!
     
    Kansas and Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine,
    Maryland, Massachusetts, and good old Michigan
    Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, and Montana,
    then Nebraska's 27, number 28's Nevada.
     
    Next New Hampshire, then New Jersey, and way down, New Mexico,
    There's New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio
    Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania,now let's see,
    Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee,
     
    Texas and there's Utah, Vermont, I'm almost through
    Virginia and there's Washington, and West Virginia too,
    Could Wisconsin be the last one, or is it 49?
    No, Wyoming is the last state in the 50 states that rhyme.
     
    WHen I sat down all out of breath, the teacher said, "that's great!"
    "I'm quite impressed, you were the best in listing all the states.
    But, if you want to get an A, for that silly little rhyme,
    Stand back up and sing that song, but do it in double time!"
