Junior Leader Training -- White Stag Leadership Development

Suggested Songs

Why start out with "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad" again? Because it's lively, tuneful, popular, and runs by itself. But, maybe you'd like to be known as a good song leader instead of just a good song leader. Then choose songs appropriate to the occasion and the mood you want to create. Here are a few suggestions from the Scout Songbook, No. 3224. There are lots more there-but try the new as well as the old.


  • Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here
  • Hello! Hello!
  • We're All Together Again, We're Here


  • I Points to Mineself
  • If You're Happy (and You Know It)
  • Three Jolly Fishermen
  • Let's Go On a Bear Hunt!


  • The Paddle Song
  • Row, Row, Row Your Boat
  • Down by the Station


  • Pack Up Your Troubles
  • The Happy Wanderer
  • Be Prepared


  • I've Got That White Stag Spirit
  • The Horses Run Around
  • The Quartermaster's Store
  • When the Saints Go Marching In

Write a "program" of appropriate song titles on a 3" x 5" card for each campfire or meeting where you will be responsible for the song leading. Write big enough to see in dim light. See Leading Songs for a few tips on using singing effectively.
