Help: Unable to get this chord progression: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jLB2cFMBiT4

Little Green Valley

It's not hard to see just what's wrong me all th time
When I tell ya I'm homesick, lonesome an' sad
There's a deep regret I can never get off of my mind
Cause I went t' roamin' left the only home I ever had
I hear a mockin' bird down in th little green valley
He's singin' out his heart to welcome me
Someone waits by th garden gate down in th little green valley
When I get home again how happy I will be
Down by a little babbling brook, once more I'll wander
And in a shady nook, I'll dream the hours away
That's where I'll leave all my cares behind
Go where I know I'll find sunshine
Back to that little ole green valley, far away

All night long in my dreams I see a spot far away
Nestled in those hills in th land that I love
Stormy weather may come, but whether th sky is blue or gray
I keep dreamin' of sunlight, streamin from heaven above
I see a candlelight down in th little green valley
Where morning-glory vines are twinin' round th door
How, I wish I were there tonight, down in th little green valley
For then my homesick heart would trouble me no more
There is only one thought ever gives me consolation
An' that's th dream that I'll be goin' back someday
Now, ever night down upon my knees I pray th Lord'll please take me
Back to that little ole green valley, far away

Thanks in advance for any help: Jim

Refresh: Actually would be happy to have a workable chord progression of any type for this song and/or information where I might get sheet music for it.   Only referred to youTube as a source for the melody.

The same song was recorded by Marty Robbins. Might be easier to find his, Hi_Ho.

That's what Fretkillr (may he remain blessed) is playing.

The second verse uses exactly the same chords.

Marty's version is a bit different with a simpler progression. Cowpie shows it like this:

Lyrics submitted to Cowpie by Allen Tucker
Key of C (1=C, 4=F, 5=G)

1                   4                                    
I see a candlelight down in the little green valley

Oh, how I wish I were there again

back to that little old green valley far away.

I hear a mockingbird down in the little green valley.
He's singing out a song of welcome just for me.
And someone waits by the garden gate
down in the little green valley.
When I get back again
how happy she will be.

And by a little babbling brook once more we'll wander
and in a shady nook we'll dream the hours away
and I will leave all my cares behind,
go where I know I'll find sunshine,
back to that little old green valley far away.

When you want to put chord symbols (letters) directly above a given word or syllable in a set of lyrics, you need to use a monospaced or "typewriter" font, such as Courier. Every character (including punctuation marks and spaces as well as letters and numerals) is the same width, so you can predict how letters will line up vertically.

What's especially problematic and confusing about trying to do this in a Mudact post is that your post is displayed in monospaced Courier when you are tryping it in, but whtn it's posted, it is converted to non-monospaced Times Roman (or equivalent.) So a passage that looks right to you as you enter it will fail to line up correctly once you've posted it.

Oops! I wasn't fininshed & posted accidentally.

The HTML code to "start typewriter" is [open-bracket]tt[close-bracket], and of course to "end typewriter" is [open-bracket]/tt[close-bracket].

For example: what we see above as:

1                   4                                    
I see a candlelight down in the little green valley
             5                               1
where Morning Glory vines are twining round my door.
1
Oh, how I wish I were there again
4                        1
down in the little green valley.
                5                                 1
That's where my homesick heart will trouble me no more.

...was originally typed, and was meant to look, like this:

1                   4                                    
I see a candlelight down in the little green valley
             5                               1
where Morning Glory vines are twining round my door.
1
Oh, how I wish I were there again
4                        1
down in the little green valley.
                5                                 1
That's where my homesick heart will trouble me no more.

See? I copied a single passage and pasted it twice, once without and then once with the "tt" commands. Makes a big difference. In the Timnes Roman version, all the letters are different widths and the blank spaces ("word spaces") are much narrower than any letter, so the mostly-blank lines with the chord letters run shorter than they are meant to.

HiHo, now that you know that FK is playing in C ~ well, actually in D, since he's capoed at the second fret and playing key-of-C chord shapes ~ you should be able to learn a few new licks by watching him.

Actually, while he doesn't "give lessons" as explicitly as his fellow-headless-wonder DeltaBluesTips, Fretkillr's showing us exactly how he plays his songs. Not everyone will learn as quickly as others, and our singing abnilities may vary, but if you want to learn to play exactly what he's playing, he's giving us all the info required. Some plausing and rewinding will probably be required, but it's all there plain to see.

Note that he (like many of us) plays the G chord with left pinky on the high E string, so the changes from C to F to G/G7 require minimum movement and really facilitate those walking-bass runs from one chord to the next. (I'm assuming that anyone who wasn't able to recognize the chords in the video is not real familiar with intermediate/advanced playing in the key of C, and might not be wise to that fingering for the G major chord.)

Very nice song, by the way ~ I was not familiar with it before.

Murray's transcription (above) is correct, by the way.

One "minor" exception: I think that FK may be playing Dm7 rather than D7 the one brief moment that chord appears in each verse; but maybe it's the minor 7th only for the second verse. First time through, I don't hear the minor third so clearly ~ but not the major third, either...

Poppagator is quite right, FK is indeed playing a Dm at 2.45 rather than a D7 .

At 0.47 however, I think he is playing a D7, although as Poppagator says, you don't hear the major third that clearly.

Both chords work for the song. If I were playing it , my instinct would be to play the D7 each time, YMMV.

    The first was a copy & paste from Cowpie so it didn't work. I copied it into Word and re-pasted it but the same problem still existed.
