Rise Again

words & chords to 1200 more songs
from Annie Patterson & Peter Blood
the creators of Rise Up Singing


The long wait is over! After many years of planning and three years of full-time work by many hands, this sequel to Rise Up Singing was published by Hal Leonard in 2015. The format is the same as the one used in Rise Up Singing but Rise Again contains 1200 additional different songs! 

See the list of songs in the new book! (You can search for songs in the new songbook by title, genre, ethnic background or chapter in our online song search area: www.riseupandsing.org/songs/search. If you want to search by composer or recording artist, enter the artist's name in the search box in upper right hand corner of each webpage.)

Learn more about the book's format, layout & illustration. You can read here Pete Seeger's preface to the new book.

Read about the history of the new book and Pete Seeger's role in the book.

Find out about the many "Rise Again" concerts that have been held celebrating the release of the new book. In many cases other artists who have songs in the new book have joined the book's creators, Annie Patterson & Peter Blood, in these concerts.

[Note for those who bought Rise Again when it first came out in 2015: As with many great books there are often errors that somehow slipped through the cracks. There were a number of errors in the title index of the first printing only in both formats of the new book. If you bought the book when it first came out, you can download corrections for the index here. The problem was corrected with books beginning in the late fall of 2015.]
