Hi anyone know the chords to this lovely song. I have a recording by Barleycorn but can’t seem to get the lovely finger picking . All help appreciated

Tell ya what: you put the lyrics here and I'll put the chords on them. You'll also have to tell me what key you want it done in. Because this is the second thread with the same request, I expect a mod will join the two. That said, the chording is fairly straight forward. The opening chords on the video I watched are C#, C#maj7. It would be easier if you chose a key that isn't # or b.

Oops. Make that D# and D#maj7. The rest still stands. (Just instilling a little confidence for ya there.)

Thanks in advance, first first and chorus should suffice thanks, i usually sing in G

Strolling down l’amour avenue
Looking to find my someone
Every time I see something new
I know there’s only one of them

She’s got this store where everything’s fine
You don’t need no money
You may be broke but then she don’t mind
As long as your her honey

Chorus
Ginny I love the way that you love
Everything that you do to me
I never knew I could love to be in love
Ginny that’s what you do me

Intro is G, Gmaj7 (repeated lots)

(Ascending run from D chord)(G)Strolling (Gmaj7)down (G)l’amour (Gmaj7)avenue
(G)Looking to (Gmaj7)find my (D)someone
(C)(D7)Every time I (C)see something (D)new
(C)I know there’s (D)only (G)one of them

The second stanza uses the same chords as the first

Chorus

(C)Ginny I (D)love the (G)way that you (Em)love
(C)Every(D)thing that you (G)do to me
(C)I never (D)knew I could (G)love to be in (EM)love
(C)Ginny (D)that’s what you do (G)to me


NB I have not notated the ascending/descending runs because I don't know how. Also, where I've used the D chord: sometimes it's more like a D7. That said, the D will work until you do your own variations. If I have screwed up somewhere, please accept my apologies. Best wishes with it.

Well, it'll come. Just takes a bit of getting used to. From curiosity, what kind of guitar do you play?
