The Bird Sings Oral Tradition Song Library

Online Song Library

Welcome to the beginnings of what is slowly growing into a collection of more than 400 oral tradition songs I know and share in my classes and workshops. You can search for songs using the search bar on the right, by category if you scroll down or the A-Z index.

This library is built and maintained by me as a labor of love. Right now there are no scores available for these songs. You can help support this project, including investing in the expansion of available scores and other resources, by becoming a Patreon patron. Thank you so much!

Search for songs by typing titles or lyrics in the search box or by the categories & keywords listed to the right.


Here is an A-Z Index.

For more songs:

And many more songs may be found on my old website here:

    To Lisa.
    I so enjoyed my first time hearing your wonderful voices last night at Carmel Valley. I was overjoyed, and I love your closing saying that hearing this wonderful music, that cancer cells would just dissolve. I am hoping that is true, as I have been taking chemo for two months. Devastating. I opted to quit that Xeloda.
    I felt renewed from the energy in that hall last night. Thank you so very much.
    Sincerely, Ruth

I extend a deep bow of gratitude and respect. Lisa, you are the best!

  • Johanna Risse

    Awesome! This will feed my hunger for beautiful songs, thank you so much !

  • Janette Moody

    Just a suggestion…I find it hard to find songs by categories…tried to find Doin’ the Impossible for “After the Storm” show with Michael and when I write it in, it doesn’t come up. Would it be hard to do an alphabetical index?

    • Lisa G.

      Thanks Janette! That’s a good idea and I’ll try to add that in. I did try typing that song in and it came right up for me. One tip: Try typing just one word of the title, or the composter. If you type it a little differently than I have it listed the search may not find it.
