Hark! The Herald Banjo Rings
Christmas is Coming
Performed by Liddy Barlow on tin whistle
Words and music: English traditional
Liddy played this tune by ear the way she remembers it, after discovering that no two versions in sheet music or Internet recordings seem to be the same. Her rendition seems to be most closely influenced by the classic John Denver and the Muppets recording on the album "A Christmas Together."
Christmas is coming! The goose is getting fat.
Please put a penny in the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do;
If you haven't got a ha'penny then God bless you!
