Traditional American Folk Song

Originally Performed by Norman Luboff Choir

The Colorado Trail

The Colorado Trail

The Colorado Trail is an American cowboy song and it is a real trail stretching from Denver, through the Rocky Mountains, and ending near the town of Durango. If you travel this trail from beginning to end it requires strength and perseverance and the travelers will be weary by the time they reach the end. All of these conditions are reflected in the beautiful word painting of this arrangement.

Lynn Brinckmeyer : Wander The USA With Warm-ups

Keeping singers in our ensembles excited and energized during the warm-up process is a consistent hurdle for educators across the nation. By using songs that are indigenous to different parts of our country, teachers in choral classrooms can help students prepare their minds, bodies and voices while sharing a bit of our culture and history from different areas of the United States. All of the songs can be used with both inexperienced beginners and advanced singers. The lesson suggestions introduced with each song are intended to be a springboard for teachers to modify and adapt to their own students' needs and skill levels. Each melody includes strategies that are accessible for those who are just learning how to use their voices, and also for those more sophisticated singers who enjoy a good challenge.

Songlist: Wayfaring Stranger, Goodbye, Old Paint, Rocky Mountain High, Let Me Fly, My Home's In Montana, Chatter With The Angels, Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen, I've Been Working On The Railroad, Battle Hymn Of The Republic, You're A Grand Old Flag, Whoopee Ti-Yi-Yo, Git Along, How Can I Keep From Singing, The Colorado Trail, Ulili E (The Sandpiper), The Erie Canal, Every Night When The Sun Goes Down, Johnny Has Gone For A Soldier, Weevily Wheat, Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me, (Oh My Darling) Clementine, Jolly Miller, The Lone Star Trail, My Country 'Tis Of Thee (America), The Old Chisholm Trail, On The Banks Of The Sacramento, The Shanty-Boys In The Pine, Sweet Betsy From Pike, Oh, California, Chuhwuht, Inkpataya

Various Arrangers : Songs for the Cowgirls

Here's some songs for the cowgirls. A fun theme for a set. "Cowboy Take Me Away" - A young girl dreams of romance and adventure in this heartfelt song by the Dixie Chicks that soared to the top of the country and pop charts! "I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart" - Originally recorded by Patsy Montana in 1935, this was the first country song by a female artist to sell more than one million records. Subsequently covered by Suzy Bogguss, the Dixie Chicks and LeAnn Rimes, it's a sweet and sassy novelty song that will showcase your SSA choirs. "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky" - This 1961 hit captures all the mystery and excitement of a spectral stampede. This western classic will be tremendously fun to perform! "The Colorado Trail" - This gentle setting of a traditional cowboy song starts with one part and slowly builds to three-part harmony. Weep all ye little rains, wail, winds wail, all along...the Colorado trail. "Home on the Range" - Considered the anthem of the American West, this a cappella arrangement will show off your choirs tuning and blend, with unison lines blossoming into full harmonies for an accessible and impressive choral showcase. "The Streets of Laredo" - This novel treatment of the classic cowboy song is anything but the original. Completely reharmonized with extended phrases and a minor mode for the third verse will make it perfect for that concert or festival while still motivating with its contemporary harmonies.
