Looking for Christmas Chords?

It’s that time of year again, and we have the Christmas songs you are looking for.  Of course if you’re looking for chords or tabs on the recent Family Force 5 or MxPx Christmas albums, you’ll likely have to send them in 🙂

History of Away In a Manger

The first two verses of “Away in a Manger” were originally published in a Lutheran Sunday school book in 1885. Two years later, James R. Murray published it as “Luther’s Cradle Hymn,” thus creating the misconception that Luther had written it. Although some attribute the words to Luther, they are usually considered American anonymous. Some credit the music to Murray; others think he merely harmonized an old German folk song. the words are frequently sung to the tune of the Scottish song “Flow Gently Sweet Afton.”

  1. Merry Christmas to all,

    I see you’ve upgraded your website and I’m having to get used to it.
    There used to be an option to change the key of a song in a drop down menu.
    Is this still available or am I missing something? Please advise.

    Thanks,
    Mike
