JCC Ranch Camp Songbook All you need is love, all you need is love All you need is love, love. Love is all you need G A D D7 / G B7 Em / C G D G Chorus: Bye-bye, Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry. Them good old boys were drinkin whiskey and rye Singing thisll be the day that I die, Thisll be the day that I die. C F C G/ x3 Am -Dm/ Am -G Did you write the book of love And do you have faith in God above? If the Bible tells you so Now do you believe in rock and roll. Can music save your mortal soul And can you teach me how to dance real slow Well, I know that youre in love with him cause I saw you dancing in the gym, You both kicked off your shoes. And I dig those rhythm and blues. I was a lonely teen-age broncin buck With a pink carnation and a pickup truck But I knew I was out of luck the day the music died I started singin... Now, for ten years weve been on our own And moss grows fat on a rollin stone But thats not how it used to be When the jester sang for the king and queen In a coat he borrowed from James Dean And a voice that came from you and me Oh and while the king was looking down The jester stole his thorny crown The courtroom was adjourned, no verdict was returned And while Lennin read a book on Marx The quartet practiced in the park And we sang dirges in the dark The day the music died We were singin... Helter-skelter in the summer swelter The birds flew off for the fallout shelter Eight miles high and fallin fast It landed foul on the grass. The players tried for a forward pass With the jester on the sidelines in a cast Now the half-time air was sweet perfume While the sergeants played a marching tune We all got up to dance but we never got the chance Cause the players tried to take the field The marching band refused to yield Do you recall what was revealed The day the music died We started singin... And there we were all in one place A generation lost in space With no time left to start again So come on, Jack be nimble, Jack be quick Jack Flash sat on a candlestick Cause fire is the devils only friend And as I watched him on the stage

ALREADY GONE -- Eagles


Well, I heard some people talking just the other day, And they said they were gonna put me on a shelf But let me tell you I got some news for you, And youll soon find out its true, And they youll have to eat your lunch all by yourself. GDC/GDC Ad infinitum Chorus: Cause Im already gone, and Im feeling strong I will sing this victry song, woo, hoo, hoo, ... The letter that you wrote me Made me stop and wonder why But I guess you felt like you had to set things right Just remember this my girl, When you look up in the sky You can see the starts and still not see the light. Cause Im ... Well I know it wasnt you who held me down, Heaven knows it wasnt you who set me free So often times it happens That we live our lives in chains And we never even know we have the key But me, Im already gone.... Cause Im already gone, Yes, Im feeling strong I will sing this victry song, cause Im already gone. C G F/ C G F/ C G F/ C G F

AMERICAN PIE -- Don McLean


A long, long time ago, I can still remember How the music used to make me smile. And I knew if I had my chance That I could make those people dance And maybe theyd be happy for a while. But February made me shiver, With every paper Id deliver. Bad news on the doorstep, I couldnt take one more step. I cant remember if I cried when I read about his widowed bride But something touched me deep inside The day the music died. I started singing... C Am F Dm/ C Am G/ (x2) Dm Dm (for 1st verse) Am -Em - Am Em/ F Dm Am G C Am F Dm/ C Am F G C

JCC Ranch Camp Songbook My hands were clenched in fists of rage No angel born in hell could break that Satans spell And as the flames climbed high into the night To light the sacrificial rite I saw Satan laughing with delight The day the music died. He started singin I met a girl who sang the blues And I asked her for some happy news, But she just smiled and turned away. I went down to the sacred store Where I heard the music years before But the man there said the music wouldnt play. And in the streets the children screamed, The lovers cried and the poets dreamed. But not a word was spoken The church bells all were broken. And the three things I admire most (My Father, Moses, and the Jerusalem Post), They caught the last train for the coast The day the music died. And they were singin... Chorus .../ F G7 C Alternative Chords GD Em/Am C / Em D G D Em/ Am C/ Em C D Em Am/ Em Am/ C G Am/ C D/ G D Em/ Am D /G D Em/ C D7 G CG Chorus: G C G D/ G C G D/ G C G D/ Em A7/ Em D7 Rising up above the earth Bridge #2 Moving into the universe, drifting this way and that Not touching the ground at all, up above the yard And she was glad about it, no doubt about it She cant see what she really wants No time to think about what to tell them No time to think about what shes done and she was... Bm - G - / Bm - G - / Oh oh, oh oh, ( Bb F C F Bb C F ) Last chorus: Joining the world of missing persons and she was Missing enough to feel alright and she was And she was, and she was, and she was, and she was.

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST -- Queen


Intro: Em - Am Em Steve walks warily down the street with the brim pulled way down low. Aint no sound but the sound of his feet; Machine guns ready to go. Are you ready, Hey! Are you ready for this? Are you hanging on the edge of your seat? Out of the doorway the bullets rip - To the sound of the beat Em - Am Em/ Em - Am -/ C G C G/ C G Am B Chorus: Another One Bites The Dust (2x) And another one gone, and another one gone Another One Bites The Dust Hey! Im gonna get you too-Another One Bites The Dust Em - Am Em // Em - - Am / F#m B How do you think Im going to get along Without you, when youre gone? You took me for every thing that I had And kicked my out on my own. Are you happy? Are you satisfied? How long can you stand the heat? Out of the doorway the bullets rip -To the sound of the beat There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man And bring him to the ground. You can beat him you can cheat him You can treat him bad and leave him when hes down. But Im ready, Im ready for you Im standing on my own two feet. Out of the doorway the bullets rip Repeating the sound of the beat

AND SHE WAS -- Talking Heads


And she was lying in the grass. And she could hear the highway breathing And she could see a nearby factry Shes making sure she is not dreaming. E A a bunch o times/ Bridge: See the lights of a neighbors house, Now shes staring to rise Take a minute to concentrate, As she opens up her eyes. Bb F C F / Bb C F - / Bb F C F / -Bb G C / Chorus: The world was moving, She was right there with it and she was The world was moving, She was floating above it and she was E A D A for a while And she was drifting through the backyard, And she was taking off her dress And she was moving very slowly

BABY, I LOVE YOUR WAY -- Peter Frampton


Shadows grow so long before my eyes, And theyre moving across the page. Suddenly the day turns into night, far away from the city. But dont hesitate, cause your love wont wait G Bm Em / C F7 / G Bm Em / C F7 / Bm E7 / Am D7 Chorus: Ooh, baby I love your way, Wanna tell you I love your way, Wanna be with you night and day, G D Am C /// Moon appears to shine and light the sky, With the help of some firefly. I wonder how they have the power to shine I can see them under the pine, But dont hesitate, cause your love wont wait I can see the sunset in your eyes, Brown and gray and blue besides. Clouds are stalking islands in the sun. I wish I could buy one out of season. But dont hesitate, cause your love wont wait

CARRY ON MY WAYWARD SON -- Kerry Livgren


(a cappella) Carry on my wayward son, therell be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest, dont you cry no more. Once I rose above the noise and confusion Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man. Though my mind could think I still was a madman I hear the voices when Im dreaming, I can hear them say: Am G F G/ Am G F G / Dm C Bb / Dm C G (2x) Chorus: Carry on my wayward son, Therell be peace when you are done Lay your weary head to rest, dont you cry no more. Am C G F / Am C G / Am C G F / - - - Am Masquerading as a man with a reason, My charade is the event of the season And if I claim to be a wise man, It surely means that I dont know On a stormy sea of moving emotion, Tossed about just like a ship on the ocean I set a course for winds of fortune, but I hear the voices say: Bridge: Carry on; you will always remember Carry on; nothing equals the splendor Now your lifes no longer empty; surely heaven waits for you Am GF / Am GF / Dm C Bb / Dm C G

CHEESEBURGER IN PARADISE -- Jimmy Buffett


Intro: Bm A / Bm G / Bm A D / Tried to amend my carnivorous habits Made it nearly seventy days Losing weight without speed, Eating sunflower seeds Drinking lots of carrot juice And soaking up rays.

But times have changed for sailors these days When Im in port I get what I need. Not just Havanas or bananas or daiquiris But that American creation on which I feed.

CIRCLE GAME -- Joni Mitchell


Yesterday a child came out to wander Caught a dragonfly inside a jar Fearful when the sky was full of thunder And tearful at the falling of a star C F C - / - F G - / C F Em / F G C Chorus: And the seasons, they go round and round And the painted ponies go up and down Were captive on the carousel of time We cant return, we can only look Behind from where we came And go round and round and round In the circle game C F C C F C / F - C - / F - Em F / Em F G C Then the child moved ten times round the seasons Skated over ten clear frozen streams Words like When youre older... must appease him And promises of someday make his dreams Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town And they tell him take your time, it wont be long now Till you drag your feet to slow the circle down Well the years spin by and now the child is twenty Tho his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true Therell be new dreams Maybe better dreams, and plenty Before the last revolving year is through

But alas, I was no swimmer, So I lost my Clementine Now you campers learn the moral Of this little tale of mine, Artificial Respiration would have saved my Clementine.

CLOSER TO FINE -- Indigo Girls


Im trying to tell you something about my life Maybe give me insight between black and white The best things youve ever done for me Is to help me take my life less seriously, Its only life after all Well darkness has a hunger thats insatiable And lightness has a call thats hard to hear I wrap my fear around me like a blanket I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it, Im crawling on your shore G C Drun/G C Drun/D C -/D C G- (-repeat2x) Chorus: I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain Theres more than one answer to these questions Pointing me in a crooked line. And the less I seek my source for some definitive; The closer I am to fine D- C G/(3x) D - - C/ G C Drun(2x) I went to see the doctor of philosophy With a poster of Rasputin And a beard down to his knee He never did marry or see a B-Grade movie He graded my performance, He said he could see through me I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind, Got my paper, and I was free. Chorus I stopped by the bar at 3 a.m. To seek solace in a bottle or possibly a friend I woke up with a headache like my head against a board Twice as cloudy as Id been the night before I went in seeking clarity Chorus

CLEMENTINE -- Public Domain


In a cavern, in a canyon, excavating for a mine, Dwelled a miner forty-niner, and his daughter Clementine C - - G7 / - C G7 C / ... (repetitively) Chorus: Oh my darling, oh my darlin, Oh my darling Clementine, You are lost and gone forever Dreadful sorry, Clementine. Light she was and like a feather, And her shoes were number 9, Wearing boxes without topses, Sandals were for Clementine Drove her ducklings to the water, Every morning just at nine Hit her foot against a splinter Fell into the foaming brine. Ruby lips above the water, Blowing bubbles soft and fine

We go to the bible, we go through the workout We read up on revival and we stand up for the lookout Theres more than one answer to these questions pointing me in a cooked line The less I seek my source for some definitive The closer I am to fine (3x)

COUNTRY ROADS -- John Denver COLORADO ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH -- John Denver
He was born in the summer of his twenty seventh year Comin home to a place he had never been before He left yesterday behind him You might say he was born again You might say he found a key for every door When he first came to the mountains, His life was far away On a road and hanging by a song But the strings already broken And he doesnt really care 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.

HOME ON THE RANGE


Oh give me a home, where the buffalo roam And the deer and the antelope play Where seldom is heard a discouraging word And the skies are not cloudy all day D-G-/D -A-/D-G-/DADChorus: Home, home on the range, where the deer and the antelope play Where seldom is heard a discouraging word And the skies are not cloudy all day D A D - / Bm E A - / D - G - / D A D Where the air is so pure and the zephyrs so free And the breezes so balmy and light That I would not exchange my home on the range For all of the cities so bright How often at night when the heavens are bright With the light of the glittering stars I stand there amazed and I ask as I gaze Does their glory exceed that of ours?

The ocean is a desert with its life underground And a perfect disguise above Under the cities, lies a heart made of ground But the humans will give no love

HOTEL CALIFORNIA -- Eagles


On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair, Warm small of colitas rising up through the air Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim; I had to stop for the night. Bm F# / A E / G D / Em F# There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell. And I was thinking to myself: This could be heaven or this could be hell Then she lit up a candle, and she showed me the way; There were voices down the corridor; I thought I heard them say: Chorus: Welcome to the Hotel California. Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face. Plenty of room at the Hotel California. Any time of year, (Any time of year) You can find it here. G D / F# Bm / G D / Em F# Her name is Tiffany twisted. She got the Mercedes bends. She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys That she calls friends How they dance in the courtyard; Sweet summer sweat Some dance to remember, some dance to forget. So I called up the captain: Please bring me my wine He said, We havent had that spirit here since 1969. And still those voices are calling from far away; Wake you up in middle of the night just to hear them say: Welcome to the Hotel California. Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place) Such a lovely face. They livin it up at the Hotel California. What a nice surprise (What a nice surprise) Bring your alibis. Mirrors on the ceiling, the pink champagne on ice, And she said, We are all just prisoners here of our own device And in the masters chambers, They gathered for the feast. They stab it with their steely knives, But they just cant kill the beast. Last thing I remember, I was running for the door. I had to find the passage back to the place I was before.

HORSE WITH NO NAME -- America


On the first part of the journey, I was looking at all the life. There were plants and birds and rocks and things There was sand and hills and rain Em E something (until the messiah comes) The first thing I met was a fly with no buzz And the sky with no clouds The air was hot and the heat was dry But the air was full of sound Chorus: Well Ive been through the desert On a horse with no name It felt good to be out of the rain In the desert, you can remember your name, Cause there aint no one for to give you no pain La la, la, la ... After two days in the desert sun, My skin began to turn red After three days in the desert sun, I was looking at a river bed And the story it told of a river that flowed made me sad to think it was dead Chorus After nine days, I let the horse run free Because the desert had turned to sea There were plants and birds and rocks and things There was sand and hills and rain

Its a pretty good crowd for a Saturday, And the manager gives me a smile Cause he knows that its me theyve been coming to see To forget about life for awhile And the piano sounds like a carnival And the microphone smells like a beer And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar, And say Man, what are you doing here? Chorus

PUFF, THE KOSHER DRAGON


Puff the kosher dragon, lived in Palestine And frolicked in the synagogue And drank Shaperos wine Little Rabbi Goldberg loved that kosher Puff, And fed him lox and matzoh balls And other kosher stuff Chorus: Oh! Puff the kosher dragon, lived in Palestine And frolicked in the synagogue And drank Shaperos wine (2x) Now Puff became Bar Mitzvah, Wore Tefillin every day Wrapped up in his Tallit, oh thats the way he prayed Made brochos before eating And he benched at every meal Imagine how religious it made that dragon feel. Oh! Now there were some people who did things out of spite They cursed Jews and attacked them Just to get into a fight. When Puff the dragon heard this He roared a mighty roar. Now those wicked people arent with us anymore. Now Puff that kosher dragon, found himself a bride Now little kosher dragons Are his source of joy and pride. They all grew up doing Mitzvos, Learning Torah, and Davening too. And Rabbi Goldberg teaching them What kosher dragons do. Now you who may be listening May think were making fun. But deep down in this story Theres a moral for everyone. If a dragon can wear a kippah, Keep Shabbat and kosher too. Then you can learn like Puff did h How to be a real good Jew, Oh!

PIANO MAN -- Billy Joel


Its 9:00 on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffles in Theres an old man sitting next to me Making love to his tonic and gin He says Son can you play me a memory, Im not really sure how it goes, But its sad and its sweet and I knew it complete When I wore a younger mans clothes Crun Frun / Crun F G C Chorus: La, di da, diddi da, ...

And hes quick with a joke, or to light up your smoke But theres someplace that hed rather be He says Bill, I believe this is killing me As the smile ran away from his face Well, Im sure that I could be a movie star, If I could get out of this place Chorus Now Paul is a real-estate novelist Who never had time for a wife And hes talking with Davy, whos still in the navy And probably will be for life And the waitress is practicing politics As the businessmen slowly get stoned Well theyre sharing a drink they call loneliness But its better than drinking alone

PUFF, THE MAGIC DRAGON --Peter Yarrow and Leonard Lipton

Chorus A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys Painted wings and giants rings Make way for other toys One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more And Puff that mighty dragon, He ceased his fearless roar His head was bent in sorrow, Green scales fell like rain Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave So, Puff that mighty dragon, sadly slipped into his cave, oh... Chorus

on the Bayou, Lord. And them Delta women think the world of me

SHELTER FROM THE STORM -- Bob Dylan


Twas in another life time, one of toil and blood. When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud. I came in from the wilderness, A creature void of form. Come in she said, Ill give you, Shelter from the storm. D-GD/--G-/D-G-/DAGD And if I pass this way again, You can rest assured, Ill always do my best for her, On that I give my word. In a world of steel eyed death and men

JCC Ranch Camp Songbook Who are fighting to be warm, Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. Not a word was spoke between us. There was little risk involved. everything up to that point, had been left unresolved. Try imagining a place where its always safe and warm. Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. I was burned out from exhaustion I was buried in the hail. Poisoned in the bushes an blown out on the trail Hunted like a crocodile, ravaged in the corn Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. Suddenly I turned around and she was standing there With silver bracelets on her wrists And flowers in her hair. She walked up to me so gracefully And took my crown of thorns Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. Now theres a wall between us Something has been lost. I took too much for granted I got my signals crossed Just to think that all began on an uneventful morn Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. Well the deputy walks on hard nails And the preacher rides a mount But nothing really matters, its doom alone that counts And the one-eyed undertaker, he blows a futile horn Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. Ive heard newborn babies wailin Like a mornin dove And old men with broken teeth stranded without love. Do I understand your question, man Is it hopeless and forlorn. Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. In a little hill top village I gambled for my clothes I bargained for salvation And they gave me a lethal dose. I offered up my innocence and got repaid with scorn Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. Well Im livin in a foreign country But Im bound to cross the line. Beauty walk a razors edge, someday Ill make it mine. If I could only turn the clock back To when God and her were born Come in she said, Ill give you shelter from the storm. It was sad when that great ship went down. D-GD/--A-/D-GD/DADChorus: Oh it was sad (so sad!), it was sad (too bad!)

Oh they sailed out from England and were almost to the shore When the rich refused to associate with the poor So they put them down below where they were the first to go It was sad when the great ship went down. The boat was full of sin and the sides about to burst When the captain shouted,Women and children first! Oh, the captain tried to wire but the lines were all on fire It was sad when the great ship went down. Well, they swung the lifeboats out oer the deep and raging sea And the band struck up with Nearer My God To Thee Little children wept and cried as the waves swept oer the sides Oh it was sad when the great ship went down Now, The moral of this story, as you can plainly see Is to wear a life preserver when youre traveling on the sea The ship Titanics now just a note in history It was sad when the great ship went down

Neath the halo of a street lamp I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light, that split the night And touched the sounds of silence And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs, that voices never shared, no one dares Disturb the sounds of silence Fools, said I, You do not know Silence like a cancer grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you But my words, like silent raindrops fell And echoed in the well of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god theyd made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls & tenement halls And whispered in the sounds of silence

THE SCOTSMAN -- Mike Cross


Well, a Scotsman, dressed in kilt, Left a bar one evening fair, And one could tell by how he walked That hed drunk more than his share.

They crept upon that sleeping Scotsman, Quiet as could be And lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see, And there-behold-for them to view Beneath his Scottish skirt Was nothing more than God had graced him with upon his birth. They marveled for a moment, then one said, We must be gone.

TOMS DINER -- Suzanne Vega


Intro: Da da dada da da dada, I am sitting in the morning at the diner on the corner I am waiting at the counter for the man to pour the coffee And he fills it only halfway and before I even argue He is looking out the window at somebody coming in Am - G - // C - F - / C Am Dm E it is always nice to see you Says the man behind the counter To the woman who has come in She is shaking her umbrella And I look the other way As they are kissing their hellos Im pretending not to see them And instead I pour the milk I open up the paper theres a story of an actor Who had died while he was drinking It was no one I had heard of And Im turning to the horoscope And looking for the funnies When Im feeling someone watching me And so I raise my head Theres a woman on the outside looking inside Does she see me? No she does not really see me Cause she sees her own reflection. And Im trying not to notice That shes hitching up her skirt And while shes straightening her stockings Her hair is getting wet Oh, this rain it will continue Through the morning as Im listening To the bells of the cathedral I am thinking of your voice And of the midnight picnic Once upon a time before the rain began I finish up my coffee and its time to catch the train

And dont it feel good? (2x) (G) A G / 3x) D G A G I used to think maybe you loved me, Now I know that its true And I dont want to spend my whole life just a waiting for you. I dont want you back for the weekend, Not back for a day. Oh baby I just want you back and I want you to stay.

WHEN IM SIXTY-FOUR -- Lennon/McCartney

Send me a postcard drop me a line Stating point of view Indicate precisely what you mean to say yours sincerely wasting away Give me an answer fill in a form mine forever more Will you still need me will you still feed me when Im sixty-four

Well youve cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air, But will you keep on building higher, Till theres no more room up there? Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry? Will you tell us when to live, Will you tell us when to die?
