    A great song. I play it as a medley with Bill Monroe's Kentucky Waltz.

    I love the changes. I play it in G.

    The version of Tennessee Waltz i have from uku-tabs opens the first 3 bars with G, G7maj, G7 respectively. As I am tuned in dGBE this makes a nice walk down on the first 3 bars.

    La Vie en Rose is a slow little gem. I'm learning that now. Quite easy.

    Thanks Davoravo. That sounds cool. I think I'll add that to my version.

    A lovely song. Canuck Bob Bossin sings these words. He is an Anglo trying to sound French.

    I misread the title as "Shower Songs..." and am now trying to figure out "Rubber Ducky". It's actually pretty fun to play!

    Brilliant! I'm home with a cold today, so now I've got my homework.

    Thanks so much for this - I laughed so hard, my dog thought I was hurt and got all concerned.
