Scout who Never Returned Song
This Song is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
The Tune: (Charlie on the MTA)
Let me tell you of a story of a Scout named [name] ,
On that tragic and fateful day;
Put his Scout knife in his pocket;
Kissed his dog and family;
When to hike in the woods far away.
Well, did he ever return?
No, he never returned.
And his fate is still unlearned:
He may roam forever in the woods and mountains,
He's the Scout who never returned.
Now you citizens of [town name],
Don't you think it's a scandal
How ol' [name] got lost that day?
Take the right equipment; TAKE ALONG A BUDDY,
When you hike in the hills that way.
Or else you'll never return,
No, you'll never return.
And your fate will be unlearned, just like [name]
You may roam forever in the woods and mountains,
Like the Scout who never returned.
