These are the songs that I have in my "book," a three-ring binder where I've been stashing the words and chords to songs since about 1966. It's funny to see the ones that I typed on an old Royal portable typewriter (with erasures, manual corrections, "white out" etc.) way back when. The contrast is especially noticeable when seen next to the ones I "typed" up more recently on my PC and laser printer. I also have a lot of songs on sheet music and song books. Then there are the songs that I learned, sang, never had written down anywhere and eventually stopped singing. In short, the following list is not "all inclusive." There are probably another hundred songs that have just faded away ...

In most cases, the AUTHOR/ARTIST column indicates the artist from whose recording I learned the song. Sometimes that's also the composer, although I suspect that, more often than not, that is not the case. The vast majority of the songs I don't have any printed sheet music for - I learned them from an "album."

There are over 200 titles listed here. I can still probably play about 85% of them with the music in front of me - maybe 40% by memory. With all the other stuff bouncing around in my brain, it amazes me that I can recall that much!

There is a least one song on this list that was written in the same year I was born, but I'll leave that mystery up to you to figure out!
