3 Chord Club: Lone Star Songs

Posted on: June 1st, 2012 by dville

In honor of the Lone Star Ukulele Festival in Dallas, this week on the 3 Chord Club we’ll learn three uniquely Texas songs.

Each Friday we choose three songs from a specific artist, label or genre of music that we’ll learn by ear. All the songs will contain three chords or less (with the exception of Bonus Chord songs)! You’ll find links to the lyrics but not the chords. That’s where your ears come in. Since you know the song has only one to three chords, try to figure out the changes, or chord progression by ear while watching the YouTube video. Here’s a hint, most of the time the chords will be the I-IV & V or V7 chords. In the Key of C, that’s C-F-G or G7. Remember, the sound examples may be in various keys. As an added bonus, try to figure out the key of the recording. If you can’t figure out the original key of a song or songs refer to the Extra Credit Hints at the bottom of the post.

 

Waltz Across Texas-Ernest Tubb  (lyrics)
(Hint: I-V7-I)

 

Yellow Rose of Texas-Mitch Miller  (lyrics)
(Hint: I-V7-I)

 

Deep In The Heart of Texas-Hank Thompson 
(Hint: I-V-I)

Extra Credit Hints:
Waltz Across Texas: Key A (Chords A-E7)
Yellow Rose of Texas: Key A (Chords A-E7)
Deep In The Heart of Texas: Key D (Chords D-A)
