Joe Richman Origins: Were You There (spiritual) (26) Chord Req: opinion wanted; Chords to Were YouThere 07 Mar 04

I have several gospel songbooks, and all of them seem to have different sets of chords for this song. Even transposing them into the same key has vastly different results. They seem to break down into two categories: Those with only one minor chord (fairly simple) and those with a whole lot of minor chords. I tend to favor the former over the latter, but I'd like some opinions. By the way, my instrument is 5 string banjo played clawhammer style. I think that the fewer minors sounds more "hillbilly". In G the minor is A minor. The other chords in the "simple" arrangement are D, D7 and C.
