Julia Nunes & Wade Johnson – Cold Outside (Chords)

Julia Nunes and Wade Johnson – Cold Outside (Chords)

It really must be the season of good will to all.

I have some trouble picturing Wade Johnson seducing Julia Nunes. He seems far too nice. Nowhere near oleagenous enough to sing this song. But it’s a nice simple version for the uke. The only tricky part is that you have to tune down half a step if you want to play along with the video (to f# B D# G# ).

Suggested Strumming

For the D chord: u d u –
For the G7M chord: u – u –
For Em: u d u –
For A7: u – u –

For the rest of the chords all down strums should see you through.

    Nice is in the eye of the beholder.

    Thanks for linking to that Tom Jones version! I’d never seen it before. Love Tom Jones. Especially singing the line “Ooh, your lips are delicious” to her crotch. There is no topping that video.

    Jodi: That’s my favourite version too. I think that’s the only Tom Jones cover I can say that about.

    Thanks Al. :) Found out today that next week’s music meet is Christmas themed (who’da thunk it?), so this’ll do nicely.

    byjimini: Quite a stroke of luck that I was posting Christmas music at the same time as your Christmas themed shindig.

    I think my shindigs and your content go hand-in-hand. :)

    This: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HKzE5T_mIo is the indisputable best version of this song.
