Playing at a Christening tomorrow and the version of the song I'm playing has been changed. Need uke chords for the Seekers version of This Little Light of Mine. The parts I'm doing are:


little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

Monday gave me the gift of love,
Tuesday peace came from above,
Wednesday told me to have more faith,
Thursday gave me a little more grace,
Friday told me to watch and pray,
Saturday told me just what to say,
Sunday gave me the power divine
To let my little light shine.

ttle light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

That's all I'm doing but it's different from the version I had. I've got the guitar chords but the guitar chords for the other version I had were different from the uke chords so it's probably the same case for this too! Please, any help would save my life!...

What key are you going to play it in ? Or do you just need " I, IV, V " type of changes ?

Do you have a link to the song so I can hear it? I'll figure it out for you if you do.

I don't have a link to this version of it, no. I don't know about the key either, I think the other version was in C? It went:

C C7
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine;

F G7 C
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.

C E7 A7
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,

A7 D7 G7 C F C
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

So I imagine that bit's the same but can I just repeat that for the verse?

No, the verse is different. You can't just repeat those chords.

If you're doing The Seekers' version:

Are you absolutely positive you're doing it in C? Because The Seekers' version is in G. If you're doing it in C, then you have to transpose.

Wow, that was quick! Whats the G+ chord?

G+ means G augmented. You can play it like this: 0332.

So are you positive you're playing it in C?

I'm not sure? I don't think it matters, I'm just playing it in church while everyone sings over it. That version is in G right? I'll just use that one...
