Topic: Song- Oh What A Night !

Probably not what you were thinking smile
I heard that line in a movie last night and it stuck in my head.
This morning having coffee I just started writing the lines -this is how it came out.

Oh, What A Night ! by Jim Kenyon


Verse 1


.


[C] Oh what a night that must have been


For the Virgin Mary in Bethle[G]hem


Oh what a [C]night that must have [F]been


As the Shepherds[C] heard those angels,[G] crying out to [C]them


.


Verse 2


.


[C]Oh what a night that must have been


To celebrate the newborn [G]king


Oh what a [C]night that must have [F]been


To see that [C]little baby, and [G] hear those angels [C]sing


.


Chorus


.


[C] Oh those [F]angels flew so beautiful, up [C]in the shining stars


[F]sang the prince of peace is here, as [C]wise men came from far


[F]voices ringing through the night, sang his [C] name again and again


he's the [G]chosen one, born to save the world, and to [F]that they sang [C]Amen


[G] let me hear you [F]sing [C]Amen


[G] Allelujah, let us [F]all sing [G]Amen


.





Verse 3


[C] Oh what a night that must have been


To know he is the way, he is the [G]light


Oh what a [C]night that must have [F]been


Savior of the [C] world born [G]on that holy [C]night




.


Chorus


.




[C] Oh those [F] flew so beautiful, up [C]in the shining stars


[F]sang the prince of peace is here, as [C]wise men came from far


[F]voices ringing through the night, sang his [C] name again and again


he's the [G]chosen one, born to save the world, and to [F]that they sang [C]Amen


[G] let me hear you [F]sing [C]Amen


[G] Allelujah, let us [F]all sing [G]Amen


.


[G] the chosen one, born to save the world, and [F]to that they sang [C]Amen


[G] the chosen one, born to save the world, and [F]to that they sang [C]Amen


[G] let me hear you [F]sing [C]Amen


[G] Allelujah, let us [F]all sing [G]Amen


[G] Allelujah, let us [F]all sing [G]Amen

Re: Song- Oh What A Night !

There must have been something extra in that coffee to come up with those lyrics. That's a keeper Jim.     

I want to read my own water, choose my own path, write my own songs

Re: Song- Oh What A Night !

That is a magic Christmas carol you have written Jim.
Merry Christmas to you and your family also to all of those here on Chordie.

Jeff, Ken, Peatle

Thank you for the kind words.
I like it, hoping I won't kill it by recording it.
It sounds good inside my head, its when I actually sing it all tends to go south.  smile

Thanks again fellas

Happy Holidays to you all and your families. May you all stay safe and enjoy the Christmas season.

Re: Song- Oh What A Night !

I made some changes in lyrics and chords-( i don't know if you can see them or not)
I feel pretty comfortable playing it now.
I'm going to try to get a recording up soon.

Re: Song- Oh What A Night !

Jim your song would sound great sung with a church choir. Perfect lyrics.     

Re: Song- Oh What A Night !

Peatle
Thanks my friend

It's funny - once I got into finalizing it, that's exactly how I had it framed and pictured in my mind - a song that would be sung by a church choir or congregation.
I'm still looking for time to record it.
Thanks for the kind words Peatle.

Happy Holidays to you and Maree
