Rise Up Singing is a popular folk music fake book containing chords, lyrics, and sources to 1200 songs. It does not include notation of the songs' melodies (with the exception of the two sections on rounds) and assumes that a user will know the tune to many of the songs. It was first published in 1988 by Sing Out!. It is edited by Peter Blood and Annie Patterson. The book has 35 different categories of songs arranged in alphabetical order, plus an artist index, subject index, and title index. Since the book includes only lyrics and chords without notation, it is relatively compact in size and also relatively inexpensive. Recordings of the songs (now available on CD) have been made for each section of the book to be used as a learning tool. Only enough of the song is included to learn the tune, not all verses are sung. The book is very popular having sold over a million copies. In the United States there are monthly singalongs where groups gather to sing selections from Rise Up Singing....
