Away In A Manger Chords 
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

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:

  • G
  • C
  •  D
  • D7

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.

And fit us for heaven to live with thee there

Away in a manger, no crib for his bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the ha
