Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


So Long Its Been Good To Know You


So long its been good to know you.
So long its been good to know you.
So long its been good to know you.
I haven't been home in such a long time
And I got to be drifting along.
I've sung this song but I'll sing it again

Of the people I've met
And the places I've been
Some of the troubles that bothered my mind
And a lot of good people that I left behind

Chorus:

The sweethearts they sat in the dark and they sparked
They hugged and they kissed in that dusty old dark
They sighed and they cried and they hugged and they kissed
But instead of marriage they talked like this

Chorus:

I went to your family and asked them for you
And they said take her oh take her please do
She can't cook or sew and she won't scrub your floors
So I put on my coat and tiptoed to the door saying

Chorus:

I walked down the street to the grocery store
It was crowded with people both rich and both poor
I asked the man how his butter was sold
He said one pound of butter for two pounds of gold. I said

Chorus:

My telephone rang it jumped off the wall
That was the preacher a making a call
He said we're waiting to tie the knot you're getting married
Believe it or not the church it was jammed
the church it was packed The pews were all crowded
from the front to the back A thousand friends waited
to kiss the new bride But I was so nervous
I rushed her outside saying

Chorus:
