Thread Name: Lyr Req: Spider's Web (Girl Scout song)
Subject: RE: Req: Help! a Girl Scout folk song?-Spider's Web
I can remember singing the "Spider's Wed" when I was a Girl Scout. It was back in the early 1970s at a resident camp called Camp Hilaka, someplace in Summit County, Ohio. I can remember one of the counselors telling us girls that the song Spider's Web" had its origins from from the heyday of the California missions.

I had learn these lyrics:

There's a web like a spider's web
made of silk and light and shadow
spun by the moon in my room at night
it's a web made to catch a dream
hold it tight till i awaken
as if to tell me, my dream is all right

down in the valley
there is a mission
by the old oak tree
down by mission
there is a fountain
where my love told me (chorus)
