I’ve spent a lot of time over the last several years studying what makes a great campfire song. I’ve concluded that there are two types of campfire songs: 1. old-time, traditional songs that most people learnt as children, and 2. songs that we grew up listening to as teens, young adults, and even older adults.
The majority of this website is dedicated to the first category: songs that are simple to learn and sing. I’d want to concentrate on the second group: modern campfire tunes. By “current,” I mean songs written and sung between the 1950s(ish) and the present.
I’m thinking about John Denver, James Taylor, Jack Johnson, and Jim Croce. It’s usually a song performed by an acoustic performer; something that sounds well with only a guitar and vocals. Of course, it doesn’t have to be a guitar; it may be a banjo, ukulele, autoharp, or other accompanying instrument.
I’ve indicated before on this site that these kind of campfire tunes aren’t generally appropriate for a singalong. They are, nonetheless, excellent for amusement. A campfire gathering need entertainment from time to time, and who knows, maybe some of the individuals in your company remember the lyrics to “Banana Pancakes” or “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
I’ve included a collection of modern campfire tunes below. This is an ongoing project. You may get the guitar chords and lyrics by clicking on the song.
