It’s been a while since my last blog post, but I plan on making a handful of posts in the near future to update the internet on the progress I’ve made with my DIY home automation. However, in the mean time, I figured I’d make this blog post with lyrics and chords to Raffi’s ‘Going On A Picnic’ from the album ‘Corner Grocery Store’. When my older son asked me to play this song on guitar, I searched the internet and wasn’t able to find the chords. So, I listened to Raffi play the song a few times on banjo and wrote out the chords. They’re pretty simple:

G    Em     C  D  C

G                  Em       C                     D
Going on a picnic, leaving right away
G                   Em             C     D    G
If it doesn’t rain, we’ll stay all day
G                              C       D
Did you bring the sandwiches?
G                                   C        D
(Yes I’ve brought the sandwiches)
G                              C     D

G                                   C     D
(Yes I’ve brought the salad)
G                  Em      C      D    G
Ready for a picnic here we go
