Intro: D Dsus D (let ring out)

Verse:
It was not a silent(G5)night
There was blood on the ground(D Dsus D)
You could hear a woman (G5)cry 
in the alleyway that (A)night 
on the streets of David's town(D Dsus D)


And the stable was not (Bm) clean, 
and the cobblestones were (F#m) cold. 
And little Mary full of (G5) grace 
with the tears upon her (A) face 
had no mother's hand to hold (D Dsus D)

Chorus:
It was a labor of (G5) pain, 
it was cold sky a (Bm) bove. 
But for the girl on the ground in the (G5) dark 
Every beat of her beautiful (A) heart 
was A labor of Love (D Dsus D)

Verse:
Noble Joseph at her(G5)side
Callused hands and weary eyes(D Dsus D)
There were no midwives to be(G5)found
In the streets of David's(A)town
In the middle of the night(D Dsus D)

So he held her and he(Bm)prayed
Shafts of moonlight on his(F#m)face
But the baby in her womb(G5)
He was the maker of the moon(A)
He was the Author of the faith(D)
That could(Dsus)make the mountains move(A Asus A let ring out)

If you use a cut capo then it makes it real easy to play the little riffs Peterson plays. Plus, the alternate shapes for the chords gives it a much fuller and more open sound.

I know I should know this but what is a cut capo? Are you talking about using a capo only on either the low or high strings leaving the others open?
