Not to be confused with anything 'Riverdance' related, this is the classic christmassy hymn written in note form for flute, piccolo or other instrument. A simple but fast melody, enjoy!


D G          G  A    B  -  A
I danced in the morning

B         ^C  ^D    ^D   ^D-B
When the world was begun,

B      A A           A  A    A
And I danced in the moon

B     ^C     B       A     G    F#
And the stars and the sun,

D     D G        G       A        B -  A
And I came down from heaven

B    ^C  ^D     ^D  ^D   B
And I danced on the earth,

B   A - A - B
At Bethlehem

Dance then, wherever you may be,
