Subject: Origins: Walk With Me (Kanga's Song)
From: GUEST,cosmos42

Another song origins question, for another Girl Scout Camp Song. The lyrics I learned are below. The people I learned from called it "Walk with Me", but as I've been looking around for its sources, many songbooks call it "Kanga's Song"

(I couldn't find any videos of it being sung, nor could I find the chords, so maybe I'll get over my dislike of my own voice and toss a version up on YouTube soon)

Thanks!


Chorus:
Walk with me and talk with me
And say you'll be my friend
And together we'll have harmony
On a road that will never end.

Although our roads are different
Just watch as they converge
We've got a job to do together
Our song, it must be heard.

(Chorus)

Sisters for the summer
That's what the children say
Little do they know when they go away
That our friendship will never fade.

(Chorus)

And when you're down I'll build you up
And when you're up I'll laugh with you
And together we'll find the peace of mind
That only two friends can find.

(Chorus)

I did not find "Walk with Me" or "Kanga's Song" in our Scout Songbook Indexing thread, which indexes lots and lots of scout songbooks.


I did find a version of the song that's almost the same as yours in the Girl Scout Camp Grove Point Songbbok,

KANGA'S SONG

CHORUS
Walk with me and talk with me
And say you'll be my friend
And together we'll work out a harmony
On a road that will never end

Although our roads are different
Just watch as they converge
We've got a job to do together
Our song, it must be heard
CHORUS

Sisters for the summer
That's what the children say
But little do they know when we go
away
Our friendships will never fade
CHORUS

So when you're down I'll build you up
And when you're up I'll laugh with you
And together we'll find our peace of mind
That only true friends can find

So walk with me and talk with me
And say you'll be my friend
And together we'll work out a harmony
On a road that will never end
On a road that will never end



...and I found a version exactly the same as yours here:

I don't mind helping a guy out, but if it involves listening to that again all bets are off.

Maybe that's why that song never made it into the official Girl Scout songbooks, #.

Oh, and after that, YouTube played this for me:

Joe, you got the short end of the stick on that one :-)

But it leads to a neat notion for cosmos: maybe his book could list aka's. That might prevent some confusions down the road.

Thanks, all. I definitely scoured Mudcat before posting, and will be making good use of the Scout Songbook thread.

Eek, that is a painful version of the song.

Then again, had I recorded one, I couldn't guarantee that it'd be much better...

I'm definitely going to include AKAs - and alternate versions, and so on. Some of these songs are known by so many names...


Also, it's not really relevant, but I'm female.

This isn't important to the original question, but I can't help wondering: "Kanga's Song", as in Kanga, Roo's Mother from the Winnie the Pooh stories?
