I consulted my memory and the internet and came up with this short list of songs for Thanksgiving.
1. Over the River and Through the Woods
This song was originally a poem called “The New-England Boy’s Song About Thanksgiving Day,” written in 1844 by Lydia Maria Child. It was later set to a tune by a person or persons unknown. There are actually twelve verses of the poem that you can mix and match, but I like this version of the song that I found on YouTube.
2. Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep
This song was sung by Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney in the holiday movie White Christmas.
3. Thanksgiving Prayer
Johnny Cash performed this song on an episode of the television show Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.
4. Thanksgiving Song
This is a contemporary song performed by Mary Chapin Carpenter, a country/folk/rock singer-songwriter.
5. We Gather Together
This is a traditional hymn of Dutch origin. This version is performed by the group Celtic Woman.
This song was written and composed by John Bucchino and sung by Brian Stokes Mitchell.
7. Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
This is my favorite harvest time and Thanksgiving hymn. This version is sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It is an English hymn written in 1844 by Henry Alford.
