On My Honor

D                   G

On my honor, I will try

    A                             D
There’s a duty to be done, and I say “aye”

    Bm                     Em
There’s a reason here for a reason above

       A                                 D
My honor is to try and my duty is to love

People don’t need to know my name
If I’ve done any harm, then I’m to blame.
If I’ve helped another, then I’ve helped me,
If I open up my eyes to see.

I’ve tucked away a song or two,
If you’re feeling low, there’s one for you.
If you need a friend then I will come,
And there’s many, many more where I come from.


Come with me where the fire burns bright,
We can see even better by the candle’s light.
We can find more meaning in a campfire’s glow
Than we’d ever learn in a year or so.

We made a promise to always keep,
And we sing “Softly Falls” before we sleep.
We’ll be Girl Scouts together, and when we’re gone
We’ll still be a-tryin’ and a-singin’ this song.
