    Do the songs have to be played "traditionally"? Are we allowed to interpret it anyway we'd like?

    Here is my submission (:


    :code:In the Bleak Midwinter Christina Rossetti (1872)
    Intro: F, F/C (2023), Dm, Dm+ (2215), Gm, Gm+ (0235), C, C7, 2 strums down each

    F C Dm Gm C C7
    In the bleak mid-winter, Frosty wind made moan,
    F C Dm Gm C7 F/Bb F/Bb
    Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone;
    Bb Dm F Gm C C7
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow on snow
    F C Dm Gm C7 F
    In the bleak mid-winter, Long, long ago. Turn around

    F C Dm Gm C C7
    What can I give Him, Poor as I am?
    F C Dm Gm C7 F/Bb F/Bb
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb,
    Bb Dm F Gm C C7
    If I were a wise man, I would do my part,
    F C Dm GmC7 F
    Yet what I can I give Him, Give my heart. Turn around

    Bb Dm F Gm C C7
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow on snow
    F C Dm Gm C7 F Gm C7 F
    In the bleak mid-winter, Long, long ago. Long, long ago. :code:

    Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
