Genre: Folk / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

I was thinking of composing a tune for the season and came up with a melody this week. Decided to go all the way and write some lyrics, which I've never done. I am uploading a clawhammer video which is a shorter version of this MP3 that has guitar and vocal tracks and is fingerpicked. Perry Como wasn't available for the vocals so yule (pun intended) have to endure my singing. Even after 13 years in the grave Perry's voice has to sound better than mine ever will. I'm including a page with the lyrics in the Sound Off forum post because with my singing you won't be hearing them clearly in the MP3. Anyway, hope you enjoy and have a good holiday season, whatever you may be celebrating. In Double C.
