I Know a Place"

I know a place where no one ever goes
There's peace and quiet, beauty, and repose
It's hidden in a valley beside a mountain stream
And lying there beside that stream I find that I can dream
Only of things of beauty to the eye
Snow peaked mountains tow'ring in the sky

Well, I'm a 42 year old former girl scout, so let me put my brain to it.

There's one that goes

LITTLE GREEN VALLEY
I saw a little green valley
with a carpet of corn for a floor
and I heard a voice within me whisper
This is worth living for.

I saw a little log cabin
With a river that runs by its door
And I heard a voice within me whisper
This is worth living for.

Didn't I build that cabin?
Didn't I plant that corn?
Didn't my fathers before me?
Fight for this country before I was born

I gathered my loved ones around me
And I gazed at each face I adored
And I heard a voice within me thunder
This is worth living for.


There's also "Fire by the stream," also known as the Region 8 song. But cabin by a stream has me a little stuck. Can she remember anything else about it?

Here's the rest of "I know a place".

One can imagine
himself as in a dream.
Climbing a mountain
Or down a small ravine.
The magic of this peace and quiet evermore shall stay
To make this place a haven, each and every day.
Oh how I wish I'd never have to leave,
And all my life, such beauty to receive.
Now I know that God has made this place for me.


At Flying G Ranch in Colorado, there was supposed to be a place where you could look out and see Pike's Peak, which, according to camplore, was the inspiration for the song.

CD/rabbitrunning! Welcome to the Mudcat! My sister used to be a counselor over near Colorado Springs, oh shoot can't remember the name of it, but she sang I Know A Place in HearMe not too long ago, which is the virtual song circles we have here at the Mudcat.

My mom had four girls, all girl scouts. I was the youngest and the funny thing about that song is that up until a year ago, my little child memory thought my sister had written it after she was so inspired by a special place she'd found at GS camp in Colorado where we grew up! That's what I thought I heard when I was little and we just never talked about it much, until last year when one of us happened to mention it.

If you have any qestions or need any help, please holler. You, too, Sheba.

Thanks,

kat

I _loved_ "Suitors". And "Father Father Goodbye", too.

One of the reason I signed up is because I have all these fading dittosheets and handwritten notes of Girl Scout songs and I'm going to inundate you poor defenseless people with them.

And Kat, I, too, am the youngest girl of four girls (with a tagalong boy behind me) and we were all scouts. My mother used to threaten us with Frank Sinatra on the radio, so we sang a lot on car trips. And they almost never let _me_ sing the descants! *outraged look* Mitch Miller didn't mind!

No descants? I can relate, rabbitrunner. Three out of the five of us used to sing a lot and I, as the youngest ALWAYS got stuck singing the HORN verse of the "Orchestra Song!" I haven't let them forget about that either!

(fortunately, "The Orchestra Song" was the subject of another thread, so I don't have to ask the dumb question after all...)

I always thought that the best thing about camp was singing songs that made harmony. Like "Swing Low Sweet Chariot". It just never sounded the same with only four of us to sing it. And we could only do four parts instead of eight for "Warsaw the Forty Second". But I still remember all those car trips with great fondness. Better than my sisters do, I think!

The tune my neighbor was looking for was "The Little Green Valley." Thanks! It was so neat to bring the lyrics to this friend and also have her daughter learn the song (who has just returned from her first girl scout camp). Then...when my neighbor read the name of rabbitrunning, she almost fell off of her chair. She had learned "The Little Green Valley" from a counselor named Rabbit from Rockhill (I think I have that right). Is it a small world or a coincidence.

Now who has or is making field recordings of these great girl scouts of the past and present. My neighbor friends entertained me for a good while with tunes and stories. Did Alan Lomax forget the girl scouts?

Good question! Hey, I remember the name of the camp my sister was counselor at in Colorado, it was Sky High and she was known as "Cinders." Any of you ever go there?

Were any of you in Job's Daughter's, too?

This is really fun!

No, I was at Flying G Ranch, which is Mile Hi Council, and I think that Sky High is the Colorado Springs Council. Not that Flying G wasn't fairly close to Pikes Peak, mind you.

I worked as "packout" (general kitchen aid and lord high admiral of all the pantries) one year, but my nickname was "Scratch".

I wish someone _did_ make a recording of all the girl scout stuff. Some of our versions were downright purty.

What's Job's Daughters? I went to church camp, but it was co-ed.

I went to scout camp in NY state, too, but it was Camp Hoover, in Tully. The scouts knew from the first campfire that I was musically "challenged", and they'd make me "sing" the part that went "boom-da boom-da boom-da boom-da.........." while they sang "sarasponda sarasponda sarasponda ret-set-set.." What a downer! Though it was better than music teachers who would have me sing softly, or mouth the words!!! I think my favorite was "The Ashgrove".

I was wondering if the song about the cabin was
Little cabin in the wood,
Little deer by the window stood,
Saw a rabbit hopping by,
Knocking at my door
"Help me, Help me, Help!" he cried
"Or the hunter shoot me dead!"
Little rabbit, come inside
Safely here abide
This was all done to a complex pantomime, and then repeated about 8 times, each time omitting one more verse from the singing-just doing the hand motions for it.

Boy, I'm sorry I'm so late getting to this thread. There is a tape/CD or of some of the GS songs. i haven't seen it, just know there is one. I wonder if the 'good songs' are on it? I'll see if I can get more info tomorrow. It sounds like I know older songs than most of you, but I think they are the same. I'm push the dirt up, almost. It was itnterting to read the Flying G is taking credit for I Know a Place. When I worked at Sky High we were told that it was written there. I don't remember who wrote it and I guesss it really doesn't matter it's a great song. Gee Kat, you thought I wrote it? Hey we had a cousin theat worked a Flying G i don't know her came name put Mary Louise worked there one summer. I spent many..6-7-8 years working atvarious jobs a Sky Hi or Sacajawea in Wyo.

I don't know if Flying G was "officially" taking credit for it. I just know that there was a place (walking up to Prospector I think) where you could see Pikes' and one time when I was walking there with a bunch of campers, someone told us that it was the inspiration point for "I know a place". Not a counselor, I think.

Did you sing "Counselor Blues", too? It was one of my fondest memories of that tail end of camp when we we're cleaning up and tucking everything away for the next year.

"I know a Place" was written for Flying "G" and copyrighted as well in the mid '60's I think. Mile High Council has the information and it's published in the council songbook. On a sad note, Mile Hi has decided to sell Flying "G" this summer. It is currently listed at 2.5 million. Anybody have a spare million or two that needs a home?

Back in my girlscout days...around 1963....at Camp Pottowatami, in Indiana, we learned a song from Smokey and Trees called:

Green Valley   
                  I saw a little green valley,
                with a carpet of corn for a floor,
                and I heard a voice within me whisper
                This is worth living for.

                I saw a little log cabin
                with a river that runs by it's door,
                  and I heard a voice within me whisper
                   this is worth living for
Didn't I build that cabin,
didn't I plant that corn
didn't my fathers, before me
fight for this country before I was born
                I gathered my loved ones around me
                and I gazed at each face I adored
                and I heard a voice within me thunder
                this is worth living for.

What a hoot....I have been trying to remember the words for nearly 30 years, I was going to ask if anyone remembered this one, and as I typed, the words just came to me. :)

"I Know a Place" was written by Nancy Child, a camper at Flying G, some time in the early 1960s. She should get credit for this long-standing favorite. In my mind, she captured Wigwam Creek at Flying G, its two meadows, and the mountains around. Thanks, Nancy, if you're out there.

Warsaw the 42nd might be what I learned as Wall saw the 42nd:

Wall saw the 42nd, Wall saw them goin' to war
Wall saw the 42nd marching through the bramble braw.

Zumdeba wore boots and stockings, Zumdeba wore none at all
Zumdeba wore boots and stockings, marching through the bramble braw.

I was told that "wall saw" meant we all saw, and "Zumdeba" meant some of them.   ???

I was in the Girl Scouts in the 1950's, so it is a surprise the way some of these songs are still in memory.

I'm glad to finally know the history of "I know a place". I sang it from '76 to'78 at Pine Creek Girl Scout Camp in Shoup, Idaho. My mom Pat was our troop leader and another lady named Debbie taught us the song. Funny to think it had been around for nearly 20 years before I ever heard it and it fit Pine Creek so perfectly. We were some lucky girls to have such a beautiful place to camp. Thanks for reminding me of the second verse too. I remember that I learned what a "ravine" was from that song. I was only 6!!!

Oh, now I have that song on my mind!

I was at girls' camp starting in 1976 (at Brighton, at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon just east of Salt Lake City) and learned I Know a Place then. I've been singing it to my boys at night since they were very young. In fact, most of the songs are familiar.

After every meal was finished, and before the singing started, the groups at each table would pound three times and then shout some tidbit of information in unison. For example, one table might shout, "Sprig's group is ready to hike!" and another group would shout, "We'll beat you to the top of Mount Majestic!" That pounding and shouting was what we called Horse and Goggles.

Wonderful memories!

English version again:

Saw a rabbit running by
Knocking at the door.
"Help me, help me, help me" he said
"All those guns will shoot me dead",
"Come little rabbit, come to me,
Happy we shall be"

As Marymac90 said, we did it omitting one line of words each time, and substituting them with mime, until the whole song was in mime.

RE. Warsaw the 42nd -- here's how I remember it from my GS days in the 60s:

Warsaw the 42nd
Warsaw has gone to war
Warsaw the 42nd
Marching through the brambles raw.

Zum de dem have boots and stockings
Zum de dem have nigh at all
Zum de dem have boots and stockings
Marching through the brambles raw.
