Away In A Manager ~ Three Chord Song



D                   G          D
Away in a manger no crib for a bed
    A7                     D
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
                            G             D
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
    G           D       A7          D
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay
 
    D                     G         D
The cattle are lowing the poor baby wakes
    A7                   D
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes
                             G             D
I love Thee Lord Jesus  look down from the sky
     G         D           A7         D
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh
 
                          G         D
The cattle are lowing the poor baby wakes
    A7                   D
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes
                             G             D
I love Thee Lord Jesus  look down from the sky
     G         D           A7         D
And stay by my cradle till morning is nigh


This is my favorite Christmas song,
but did you know that it was not written as a Christmas Carol.

It was written as a lullaby.
