Marijohn Wilkin wrote a number of hit songs including “Long Black Veil” and Stonewall Jackson’s big hit, “Waterloo,” but later in life she began writing only Christian songs, and in 1975 her song “One Day at a Time,” won a Dove award as Song of the Year. She recorded several gospel albums on Word Records in the 1970s and this is one of my favorites. It’s in 3/4 time, and I played it in the key of C.
This is a gospel song written by Marijohn Wilkin back in the 1960s (or maybe the early 1970s). It fits the clawhammer style for the ukulele perfectly but you can strum it normally if you prefer. I recorded it in the key of F and the chord progression is really simple (not even a Bb chord to deal with). If you need help with the clawhammer strum be sure to watch my clawhammer tutorial series.
