There are hundreds of songs suitable for camps and campfires, and although my songbook runs to over 80 pages, there are probably many that you know that are not there as well. I have mostly only included ones I know, as this was basically created as a personal resource, so many songs local to your country will not appear if you are not living DownUnder. Guitar Chords are included for nearly all songs.
Of course I am updating my master copy with a lot of other songs that I want, a lot of which are just good for those times I feel like getting out the guitar, so feel free to convert this to suit your own requirements and add/delete as you see fit. For now this is the version that will remain on my site.
