Okay, one last Christmas song before I leave Ohio and get back to the real world.
I love good uke songbooks, especially ones full of Christmas songs, especially ones full of good Christmas songs hand picked with love, and I love finding cool new songs to add to my songbook. Christmas For Cowboys is just such a song.
If I remember correctly, I found it when I was looking for something different to sing at the Uke Club Christmas open mic and I just searched for “ukulele christmas cowboy”. That led me to Uke Hunt (so you know it’s good) and that led me to Ballard C. Boyd (a uke guy I’d never heard of but he’s got tuns of Christmas gold).
It’s a great song, a little cheesy but I can be a sucker for the cheese and if I tune down a half step it fits pretty well in upper range of my voice. I sang it at uke club and it went about as well as can be expected. I even did a yodel verse or two.
Here’s my chord sheet, video coming soon.
