Ten Easy Guitar Campfire Sing-Along Songs
The songs I choose are popular among public and every one can recognize them as song as the guitar hit them up. It is time to roll the whole camp up. I believe once you learn these simple songs, you will be shiner than the campfire.
This old song is the most famous song in my list, the lyric is very easy to be remember. It is the most famous song of the eagles, someone say it is talking about the drug, sex and junkies. But in my opinions, it is just the story of young boys and girls in your ages who like to have party.
Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison
This has always been a favorite of mine. Probably because of my own brown eyes.And why not. It’s got an easy, breezy sensibility and a walk-in-the-sunshine vibe. “Brown Eyed Girl” was first released in May 1967 on the album Blowin’ Your Mind! It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2007. Originally titled “Brown-Skinned Girl,” Morrison changed it to “Brown Eyed Girl” when he recorded it.
Morrison remarked on the original title, “That was just a mistake. It was a kind of Jamaican song. Calypso. It just slipped my mind. I changed the title. After we’d recorded it, I looked at the tape box and didn’t even notice that I’d changed the title. I looked at the box where I’d lain it down with my guitar and it said ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ on the tape box. It’s just one of those things that happen.”
Well, I say, it’s a good mistake. But I might be a little partial.
Hurt Johnny Cash
Hurt is one of my favorite songs. The master piece can deliver the emotion of creator to audience, when I first heard this song I can’t help but the tear full of my eye. The old man’s voice will back you to 70s. You can see an old man who smoking a cigar and take a glance at calm sea from time to time. Then he hands you a cup of Tequila and give you the story of his dead wife in a slow speed. When you try to give some comfort to him he just grab the old guitar and play this song for you.

The songs I recommend to you just now are too gloomy or depressed to play in happy hours, and the lists now I show you is the song of fast flow and light beat. You can play for your crews when they reach the highest.
You can never tell Jack Rabbit Slim and Chuck Berry
The song is adopted by the movie Pulp Fiction, the fast flow and the lyric that similar to normal life is catch my heart. I love it because I can see myself in this song, a new couple start their new life but everything just not so comfortable for them, they will like you and me to have a quarrel in daily life and have to face a lot of boring problems every day. The lyric— Ces’t la via said the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell just hit me. So I give it to you as a choice.
Stir It Up – Bob Marley
“Stir It Up” is a song by Bob Marley in 1967, written for his wife Rita, and first made popular by Johnny Nash.
Nash’s recording hit the top 15 in both Britain and America in 1973.
When Bob Marley returned to Jamaica from the United States in 1967, The Wailers started their own label, ‘Wail’n Soul’m’ records, and released their first independent single “Freedom Time” backed with “Bend Down Low.”
“Nice Time,” “Hypocrites,” “Mellow Mood,” “Thank You Lord,” and “Stir It Up” are all recorded in the same year.
“Stir It Up” was Bob Marley’s first successful song outside Jamaica.
I particularly like that it opens with the chorus. The sing-along begins right off the top!
Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd
This iconic song proves you don’t have to be from the south to love southern rock. Released by Lynyrd Skynyrd, it first appeared in 1974 on their second album, Second Helping. It reached Number 8 on the US charts in 1974 and was the band’s second hit single. The back story goes that at a band practice shortly after bassist Ed King had switched to guitar, King heard fellow guitarist Gary Rossington playing a guitar riff that inspired him. In interviews, King has said that during the night following the practice session, the chords and two main guitar solos came to him in a dream, note for note. King then introduced the song to the band the next day. Also written at this session was the track that followed “Sweet Home Alabama” on the Second Helping album, “I Need You.”
So crank it up, or at least strum louder!
