Judy Collins chords for Cherry tree carol

Guitar chords with lyrics

This is the chord progression for Cherry Tree Carol by Judy Collins, great song to sing around Christmas.
I couldn't find any other chords on here that appeared to be correct so I've done it myself Capo is on the
5th fret and I think it sounds nice if you're playing it alone to keep your ring and pinkie fingers on the
A chord diagramE MajorE and A chord diagramBB string, third fret at all times!

Hope you enjoy, Merry Christmas!
