A Christmas carol we all sang as children translated into easy letter notes for beginners on any instrument. There are many different versions of the lyrics, so if you don't recognise the ones below, rest assured the melody is the same :)


D-G    G  AB   G-G
Away in a manger

BC  ^(D  D  E   C)
No crib for a bed

AB    C-C    D        B-B
The little Lord Jesus

GB      A       E       G         F#
Lay down His sweet head


D        G      G  AB    G        G
The stars in the bright sky

BC      ^(D        D        E    C)
Look down where He lay

AB   C-C      D       B-B
The little Lord Jesus

GB-A     E    F#    G
Asleep on the hay
