traditional. American childrens folksong

recorded after miss eugenie's anger management class this morning. :wallbash:

this is an awesome song to play for a group of kids. You can sing it through once yourself, then leave the last word of each line blank, leaving a space for the children to respond with the name of the thing the angry man jumped into!!! Lots of fun!

thanks for watching. hope it makes you smile. :)

I really like that one too!

Where did you find the chords for it? I did some searching but couldn't find anything.

Thanks!

sure Gavin, that was it. 3 chord songs. My favorite!!! Jim, I don't have any sheet music for the song. I just have a gorgeous old record of Pete Seeger who has an arrangement of it recorded. I just worked out the progression by listening to it and then put it in the best key that suits me to sing it. Glad you liked it fellas!

There (F)was a man and (Bb)he was (F)mad, (Bb)he jumped (C)into the (F)pudding bag
the (F)pudding bag it (Bb)was so (F)fine, (Bb)he jumped (C)into a (F)bottle of wine etc etc... :)
