Darlene Love – Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)(Chords)

I’m a sucker for a depressing Christmas song. And this is one of the best.

The original version was in the uke-tricky key of Eb. So I’ve written up the version she’s been singing in recent years which is in the easy key of C.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this strum almost all the way through:

d – d – d u d u

Do that twice for every chord.

The exceptions:

– You can do just one down strum per chord in the bridges.
– Play the pattern five times on the “PLEASE!”s at the end of verse three.
– Just strum up and down on the big-ass finish until you run out of breath.

    It’s really weird. To my mind this is the best Christmas song, ever. Yet my experience is, try approaching any UK ukulele group with the suggestion it should be included in their Christmas songlist and all you’ll get is blank stares. No- in the UK seems to have heard of it. So thanks, Al, for bumping it up.

    Paul: Really? That is weird. It makes a nice change from Slade and Wizzard.
