Susan of DT Happy C/Hanukkah! (plus a song) (12) RE: Happy C/Hanukkah! (plus a song) 16 Dec 18


The chorus at my retirement community does a holiday concert and includes one Hanukkah song. The director finally found one that is actually good - the melody is right and it tells the story. I copied it and set it up for the ukulele group (I'm in both and run the ukulele group). I doubt that that the chords will paste in properly, but here it is:

Hanukkah Holiday                                                                                                                261

Dm                                         Gm                 A7
Hanukkah holiday festival of lights
Dm        Am7 A7           Dm                A7                        Dm
Lights are burning on a winterís night
Gm                                                Dm
Clap your hands and join the singing
A7                                Dm
Let the fun begin
Gm                                Dm
Spin the dreidel, tell the story
Gm                                A7
Hanukkah is here.

Dm                                                                                                                 A7
Very long ago, the people of Judea fought for life and liberty
Dm                                                                                                                                                        A7                                Dm
Lighting the menorah, singing psalms of praise they thanked God for the victory
A                 A7                Dm                                Gm                                        A
And today we still remember how the lights did shine
Dm                                                                                                                A7                                                Dm
Miracle of love and miracle of hope we celebrate with songs of joy

Dm                                        Gm                        A7         Dm        Am7        A7                Dm                A7                Dm
Hanukkah holiday festival of lights lights are burning on a winterís night
Gm                                                Dm                                A7                                Dm
Clap your hands and join the singing let the fun begin
Gm                                        Dm                        Gm                                A7        Dm
Spin the dreidel, tell the story. Hanukkah is here.
