A fairly easy play here with this arrangement from Anne Murray but you could play a song like this in any four chord combo but be aware the picking arrangement would change obviously.
This song starts in C with a little riff which appears again elsewhere throughout the song and then you start singing.
Here are the chords I'm using for this version:
The rhythm in this song is a combo of arpeggio and rhythm. If you're going to play just straight rhythm just use a root down up down up, root down up down up pattern. But you'll notice in the second verse I play an arpeggio / rhythm combo by playing 1-2-3 up down up 1-2-3 up down up. The 1-2-3 is just the top three notes in each chord as you reach them.
I've put a short melody line break in here just to break up the song somewhat but that is totally optional.
Thanks for visiting this Away In A Manger chords page. I hope you found what you were looking for and found this info helpful.
