We all love the VOC Songbook, but it's not perfect.  The purpose of this wiki page to to track proposed changes to the VOC Songbook so that a future printing of the songbook can be as good as possible.  Each song should have it's own page that contains the lyrics and Guitar chords for that song only.  This way, corrections can be managed on a song by song basis.  Please make use of the discussion feature on these wiki pages to discuss the proposed changes.
The VOC Songbook is a time-honored tradition of members singing fun songs outdoors (with varying degrees of success). The current edition is the [[VOC Songbook 2015]] which you can come and grab a copy for $5 during [[Gear Hours]] in the [[Clubroom]].
