Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Under The Spreading Chestnut Tree


Under the spreading chestnut tree.
There we sat just you and me.
Oh how happy we would be under the spreading chestnut tree.

(This song has hand motions for each phrase. Each time you repeat the verse,
you leave out the phrase for the hand motion and just do the motion.
Eventually, all you will do is hand motions.)

Under (make hands over head like an umbrella) the spreading (move hands out
like tree branches) chest (point to chest) nut (point to head) tree (move
hands out like tree branches again). There we sat (hug yourself) just you
(point to somebody else) and me (point to yourself). Oh how happy (smile and
point to smile) we would be (hug yourself). Under (make hands over head like
an umbrella) the spreading (move hands out like tree branches) chest (point to
chest) nut (point to head) tree (move hands out like tree branches).
