Onwards and Upwards is a posthumously produced compilation album by the American singer/songwriter Harry Chapin, released in 2000 by The Harry Chapin Foundation. All production work was completed by Foundation board member and archivist Jason Dermer. All profits directly benefitted the Foundation's charitable work.

The eight tracks consist of alternate or live versions of previously released songs or demos. "It's You Girl" is from the pitch session of the songs Harry used for the Broadway Show The Night That Made America Famous. "Wind Coming Up" was from the "Last Protest Singer" demos.
