you looking for the best camping songs to sing at your next campfire?
Here is a fun example of one of the 80+ songs in the songbook.
Did You Know?
...You can have at your fingertips over 80 of the most requested campfire songs, all in one book, complete with lyrics, notes and guitar chords.
...The best songs for campfires and singalongs are the ones everyone already knows, or songs that can be learned in less than a minute.
...You can also entertain with some great contemporary acoustic songs by Jack Johnson, John Denver, James Taylor and Jim Croce (among others). Although they are not included in the songbook, you can find the guitar chords and lyrics on the Contemporary Campfire Songs page.
...A key element of a good singalong that is very seldom used is having those in the group help make up their own verses to familiar songs? It's easier than you might think, and adults as well as kids love it!
...The Great American Campfire Songbook is perfect for bluegrass bands, scout and youth leaders, guitar teachers, elementary music teachers, parents and grandparents, just to name a few.
...It is the perfect resource for scout blue and gold banquets, camporees, scout-o-ramas, campouts and pack meetings.
...You can download the songbook in less than five minutes, saving hours of searching the web
...You can also download the guitar, banjo and mandolin tab versions of the songbook. Save even more by ordering the complete package, which includes the songbook and the three tab versions mentioned above.
...Scroll to the bottom if you would like to see some sample pages from the songbook.
...Don't be fooled by other sites that are offering thousands of songs; they don't include the music or the chords. All you get is the words.
...It comes with an iron-clad 100% guarantee. If you're not totally satisfied, you can get a full refund; no questions asked. Not only that, but you can keep the songbook. You can't get a better guarantee than that!
The Great American Campfire Songbook sells for just $12.95. That's less than 20 cents per song.
Are the songs easy to play?
Yes; if you can play a few of the basic open chords on the guitar, you can play 95% of these songs. As I have edited these songs, I have put them in keys that are easy for novice guitarists. These songs are also in a range that makes them easy to sing; not too high and not too low.
Here is a good example of an easy song to sing. Home On the Range uses just four chords: G, C, A7 and D7. You can use an easy strum, or a simple finger picking pattern like I do, or make it as fancy as your imagination (and fingers!) will let you.
Another great resource is the videos I have put on Youtube. Once you get your book, you can look at the videos along with the lyrics. Subscribe to my channel, bestcampfiresongs, and sing along with me.

"But I'm not a musician!"
You have a couple of options:
...If you want to learn the guitar, and you have at least a couple of weeks before your singalong, you could learn 4 or 5 chords, and be able to play several of the songs in the book.
...Or, you can find a friend that already plays, give them the music, tell them what songs you want to do, and go from there.
...Guitar accompaniment sounds great, and adds to the experience, but it is not absolutely necessary; you could sing without it.
What's included in the songbook?
Each song has the notated music, words and the guitar chords. In addition, you will receive a second version, with the lyrics only; that way, you can print off copies for those who only need the words.
Here is an important thing to consider: This book includes the music and chords, most other resources on the web have only the words. If you don't know how the songs sound, the words alone will be useless to you.
Also included is Ten Tips For a Successful Campfire. Tips include what songs to sing with what age groups; how to prepare; what to do if you don't have a guitar; and other good tips.
