Loundon Wainwright III – Suddenly It’s Christmas (Chords)

Loudon Wainwright III – Suddenly it’s Christmas (Chords) Loudon has a great line in exasperated Christmas songs and Suddenly it’s Christmas is my favourite. The track first appeared on the Career Moves album. But I’ve written up the ukulele version released as a single a few years ago. The song is in the not so […]

Friday Links

But the song itself is a country song first released by Gene Autry. So you have this sweet, major key country melody rubbing up against […]
