This is a place for beginners to learn simple songs, with easy chords. I plan on most songs being Two to Five chords. I do not plan on adding any complicated music. I hope that this site will be an encouragement to everyone learning and everyone that wants to teach themselves to play. You can find many chord charts on the internet, so if you don't have one, they are very easy to find. Just Google ~ Free Guitar Chord Chart. Have fun!

Put On Your Old Grey Bonnet ~ A Five Chord Song
On the old farm house veranda sat old Silas and Miranda
Thinking of the days gone by
He said "Dearie, don't be weary, you were always bright and cheery
but a tear dear dims your eyes"
She said "These are tears of gladness, they're not tears of sadness,
It was 50 years today that we were wed"
And the old man's eyes they brightened and his old stern heart it lightened
as he turned to her and said
Put on your old grey bonnet, with the blue ribbon on it
and I'll hitch old Dobbin to the shay
and we'll ride to Dover through the fields of clover
on our golden wedding day
It was in that same grey bonnet with the same blue ribbon on it
in the same shay by his side
that he drove her down to Dover through the same old fields of clover
to be his happy bride
The birds were brightly singing, the old church bells were ringing
as the passed by that old church where they were wed
and at night while stars were gleaming the old couple lay there dreaming
