In the Misty Moonlight – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords and Lyrics

“In the Misty Moonlight” was written by Cindy Walker and became a hit for Jerry Wallace in 1964 (#19 on the Billboard Top 100). Dean Martin’s single in 1967 went to #1 on the Easy Listening chart and #46 on the Hot 100. It’s been recorded by many other artists as well, and one of my favorites was the Skeeter Davis and Bobby Bare duet.

 

Songwriter Cindy Walker (1918-2006) had Top 10 hits that spanned five decades, and she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1997. More than 500 of her songs have been recorded by country and pop artists, and her songs have made the Top 40 charts more than 400 times.

Why Me Lord – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics

Kris Kristofferson has written and recorded some amazing songs in his career, but none has been as popular as “Why Me” (or “Why Me Lord”), his country gospel song that hit #1 on the country chart in 1973 and peaked at #16 on the Hot 100 chart, staying on the Hot 100 for 38 weeks that year. It’s been recorded by dozens of artists since, including Elvis Presley, George Jones, and Willie Nelson.

 

It’s in 3/4 time and I recorded it as a simple strum-along in the key of G.
