Are you hunting for the words to songs you love?
Maybe a scrap of a song is floating through your brain, threatening to drive you mad unless you find the complete lyrics.
Maybe you are planning a family camping trip, and you want to be able to sing around the campfire.
Maybe you sing your children to sleep, but are getting tired of singing the same old lullabies.
You could do an internet search, and find thousands of possibilities - but if you’re like me, you prefer an actual songbook that you can hold in your hands, with an easy-to-use index that will let you find your favorites easily.
Even better would be a songbook that reminds you of songs you didn’t even know you know!
I have the perfect songbook for you. It’s called Rise Up Singing, and it has the words for 1200 classic songs.
No problem! If you are looking for words to songs to sing right now, visit this page of campfire songs. But if you want a collection of songs that will keep you singing for years to come, you need Rise Up Singing!

Can you remember only the title or the first line of a song?
No problem! Look it up in the main index.
You can remember that it's a Scottish song? Check out the "Cultures" index.
You know it's from "The Wizard of Oz"? Look in the "Musicals" index.
You're pretty sure that it was written by Arlo Guthrie? Try the "Artists" index.
Even if you know only a few chords, strum along while you sing. A guitar makes a simple singsong into something special.
It's just the right size and weight so that you can hold it comfortably.
The sturdy coil-bound cover holds the pages securely.
I've had my copy for many years, and it's still in great shape.
Singing in a group - especially with your family, around the campfire - is a wonderful way to create warm happy memories. I wish you many joyful hours, singing together!
