Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


So Long It's Been Good To Know Yuh


I've sung this song, but I'll sing it again
Of the people I've met and the places I've been
Of some of the troubles that bothered my mind
And a lot of good people that I've left behind

So it's so long it's been good to know yuh
So long it's been good to know yuh
So long it's been good to know yuh
What a long time since I've been home
And I gotta be drifting along

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, Honey, So long ... etc

I went to your family and asked them for you
They all said take her, oh, take her, please do
She can't cook or sew and she won't scrub your floor
So I put on my hat and tiptoed out the door
Saying: so long ... etc

I walked down the street to the grocery store
It was crouded with people both rich and poor
I asked the man, how is butter sold, he said
One pound of butter for two pounds of gold
I said, so long ... etc

My telephone rang and it jumped off the wall
That was a preacher a making a call, he said
We're getting ready to tie the knot
We're getting married, believe it or not
So long ... etc
