Thread Name: Origins: & Lyr Req: 'River in my Heart'-camp song?
Subject: Origins: & Lyr Req: 'River in my Heart'
I just signed up as a member yesterday after reading through all the 'Old Girl Scout Songs' thread. All the information has been very helpful with the song research that I'm doing. I'm not a girl scout but a 1960's campfire girl from Camp Nawakwa in So. Cal. But as a campfire girl I see that we all love & sing many of the same songs.

One of my favorites that I need info on is a song I remember calling: 'River in my Heart". . .

I go down to the river in the hill,
it pools and splashes making little rills
that will flow through the years. . .

the river seems to sing within my heart,
day is quickly past and soon we all must part,
the pine tree tucks its head benith a cloud and says a loud,
this is my home. . . .

Although the river seems to rush away
I'll come o this green spot another day and I'll say
this was my home. . .

the river seems to sing within my heart,
day is quickly past and soon we all must part,
the pine tree tucks its head benith a cloud and says a loud,
this is my home. . . .

what's next????? I remember that we sang 3 verses but this is all I can come up with



I really would love it if anyone knows any other verses and/or info on where these originally come from, or author or Pub. or anything. ..

Thanks in advance
glad to be aboard!
