breezy Origins: Chesapeake and Shannon (17) RE: Chord Req: Chesapeake and Shannon 14 May 13


I hadnt realised but now you come to mention it the first 2 lines are similar

In my daily express songbook its in G

top note being E above mid C

if thats too high capo 3rd fret and play D ir lower until you can hit the top note of the song

1st 2 lines stay on the main/tonic/1st chord whatever you call it lets say D

at the line of the 2nd line chord changes to A on handy-O

G On 'The People of the ...

D on 'Out to see...

G on music

A on yankee

D on dan G dy D O


refrain you ready ?

follows the same pattern , listen and anticipate the chord changes as you sing and good luck

I was singing this song 25 years ago and met an ex US naval officer here in England who had gone into teaching and he gave me an insight to the battle.

i still see him though he is now retired from teaching too

Its always interesting who one meets through song

hello Keith , whats on in Hertford these days?
