Thread Name: Name of this song? (Land of the Silver Birch)
Subject: RE: Name of this song? (Land of the Silver Birch)
Anyone know of a song called "In The Land of Oden"? It's an old Girl Scout/Folk song, I learned at Girl Scout Camp Hidden Falls, in Dingman's Ferry, PA, back in the 70's, when I was a camper.I was able to pick up a few chords on the guitar, and it was an easy one to play.I remember the first verse, only.

In the land of Oden
There stands a mountain,
10,000 miles in the air
Once every million years,
A little bird comes winging
Sharpens its beak
and quickly disappears
and quickly disappears.

I would love to know the rest of the verses! It was the one song I learned how to play on guitar, and now some 30 plus years later, I am going to learn to play guitar. Thanks! Kathy
