Going Camping
John Denver

1 I got my gear in my pack

I got my pack on my back

Today's the day I'm going camping

Just got the goahead sign

the weather's gonna be fine

Today's the day I'm going camping

I'm gonna pitch me a tent

Won't have to pay any rent

It looks like ev'rything is A O.K.

As far as I can see

I think it's gonna be a perfect camping day

2 The trees and animals

and clear blue skies

A waterfall comes tumbling right before my eyes

Birds that fly

above a mountain stream

It's absolutely perfect better than a dream

Peace and quiet

where the Good Lord smiled

Fields and fields of flowers growing wild

This is

just where I belong I'm a mother Nature's child

3 It's time to hit the trail

To hit the hill and dale

Oh, I love hiking in the mountains

It's great to reach the snow

And see the world below

Oh, I love hiking in the mountains

Each time we stop to eat

We get to rest our feet

And we'll make it if we take slow

'Cause the best way to climb

Is one step at a time and hicking is the only way to go

I got my gear in my pack

The trees and animals

It's time to hit the trail

I got my pack on my back

and clear blue skies

To hit the hill and dale

Today's the day I'm going camping

A waterfall comes tumbling right before my eyes

Oh, I love hiking in the mountains

Just got the goahead sign

Birds that fly

It's great to reach the snow

the weather's gonna be fine

above a moun-tain stream

And see the world below

Today's the day I'm goin' camping

It's absolutely perfect better than a dream

Oh, I love hiking in the mountains

I'm gonna pitch me a tent Won't

Peace and quiet

Each time we stop to eat

have to pay any rent

where the Good Lord smiled

We get to rest our feet

It looks like ev'rything is AO. K.

Fields and fields of flowers growing wild

And we'll make it if we take it slow

As far as I can see

This is

'Cause the best way to climb

I think it's gonna be

just where I belong

Is one step at a time

a perfect camping day

I'm a mother Nature's child

and hiking is the only way to go
