Campfire's Burning

This is probably the best-known campfire song of them all. Sung as either a two-part or four-part round, it is a very effective way of starting off a campfire.

Start the "parts" of the rounds off as follows :
for a two-part round use the red* asterisks
for a four-part round use the green* asterisks.

**Campfire's burning, campfire's burning,
*Draw nearer, draw nearer,
**In the gloaming, in the gloaming,
*Come sing and be merry.

Repeat as many times as you see fit - you may need to "conduct" in order to keep everyone in time at first, but it's a very simple round and they soon get the hang of it!
