THE PESCADERO VALLEY OUTDOOR SCHOOL SONGBOOK


A Collection of Music for All Ages
Compiled and Edited by Joshua “Bobcat” Stacy
Previous edition compiled by Megan “Canyon” Phillips

With help from a lot of other people

Thanks to everyone who contributed one way or another to this amazing collection of music. Special thanks to Paul “Palm” Mazzei for his compositions, help with this songbook and setting a rockin’ tone at campfires here at San Joaquin Outdoor School, thanks to Gregory “Grey Wolf” Bahr for his encouragement during this project, and finally thanks to all of the musicians of the valley for making magic every week and creating an environment where music is an integral part of life. Music is one of the most powerful tools we have as naturalists. It lifts spirits and engages minds in a way that is uniquely captivating.

Preface and Acknowledgements from the previous edition:


Here’s a collection that will never be finished, for use with your voice, guitar, shaker, tambourine, drum, flute, and laughter. Remember that kids never love you more than when you get up and make a fool of yourself, on key or not.
Thanks to Evergreen Eric for the original songbook (1995) which this is based upon, to Solar Steve for unending musical and creative inspiration, and to all the rock stars in the Pescadero Valley and beyond. We may not see each other as often as we’d like but we’re all singin’ the same songs.

TEACHING/FOLK SONGS

A PLACE IN THE CHOIR (adapted from “All God’s Crittters” by Bill Staines)

G


Chorus: All Earth’s critters got a place in the choir

D G G7


Some sing low and some sing higher

C G

Some sing out loud on the telephone wire


D G

Some just clap their hands, or paws, or fins, or claws, or anything they got now

Listen to the bass it’s the one on the bottom

Where the bullfrog croaks and the hippopotamus

Moans and groans with a big to do,

The old cow just goes MOOOOO…


Chorus

The dogs and the cats they take up the middle

The hummingbird hums and the cricket fiddles

The donkey brays and the pony neighs

The old coyote HOWLS…

Chorus

Listen to the top where the little birdies sing

With the melodies and the high notes ringing

And the Screech Owl hollers over everything

And the Stellar’s Jay disagrees…
