Legendary Lore
Tune: Did You Ever See A Lassie?
Simon Kenton Council

Did you ever see a horse fly,
A horse fly?
Did you ever see a horse fly,
A horse fly, fly, fly?

Did you ever see an ear drum
An ear drum, an ear drum?
Did you ever see an ear drum
An ear drum, drum, drum?

Let the boys continue with their choice of verses - eye drop, board walk, tooth pick, shoe lace, neck tie, yard stick, shoe box, star fish, etc.

American Legends
(Tune: Davy Crockett)
Simon Kenton Council

Born on a mountaintop in Tennessee,
Greenest State in the land of the free.
Raised in the woods where he knew every tree
Killed him a bear, when he was only three!
Davy, Davy Crockett,
King of the wild frontier.

Walked across the country with a sack on his back,
Saved Ohio settlers from Indian attack.
Shared all he had with anyone who lacked,
Apple trees now mark the path where he walked.
Johnny, Johnny Appleseed,
King of the farming man.

Made his living laying railroad rails,
The strongest man who could hammer those nails,
Then he was challenged to the race of his life,
Outworked a steam drill, but didn't live through the night.
Big John, Big John Henry,
King of the railroad man.

Raised by coyotes and schooled by a bear,
His horse was a Widowmaker to those who dared,
Roped every varmint that flew threw the sky,
Even a cyclone 'cross the prairie he'd ride.
Pecos, Pecos Bill
King of the wild, wild west.
