Hi there and Happy Holidays:) 


Because there are different ways of singing this song I found a link to the version 
of the song that I know and how I tabbed it. It's Ann Murray singing- and other 
than a key change she does just for 2 verses in the middle- to be fancy I guess;) it's 
the same.  It will give those who think this tab is worth a 1 star rating a heads up- 

"Hey! This is tabbed to THIS version of "Away in A Manger" and it's good, lol!

Feel free to send me a link of how you know the song and I'll tab that version too;)
But this tab with that link- 5 stars ;) lol! (And never do these 'Low raters' ever 
come back to change their rating after I've explained this to them on their wall. How
bah-humbug of them!!

  G* [x55430] -a regular G can be played [320033] but I just like this subtle change.
Am/D [xx0210]

Standard Tuning w/
Capo on 3         (Because I know you didn't read it- Take 30 sec's and 
                    read the note above if you think this tab is wrong.)

 G                   G*         Am
Away in a manger, No crib for a bed,
    D           G          Am   Am7 C     D
The little Lord Jesus, Lay down His sweet head.

    G                               G*            Am
The stars in the bright sky, Looked down where He lay
    D           G       Am    Am7 Am/D  G
The little Lord Jesus, Asleep on  the   hay 

    G                      G*        Am
The cattle are lowing, the poor baby wakes
    D           G         Am Am7 C  D
But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes

  G                           G*            Am
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky
    D          G            Am  Am7 Am/D  G
And stay by my cradle, 'til morning is    nigh 

   G                      G*           Am
Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask  Thee to stay
      D        G         Am   Am7 C  D
Close by me forever, And love me  I  pray

      G                         G*         Am
Bless all the dear children, In Thy tender care
    D          G          Am   Am7  Am/D G
And take us to heaven, To live with Thee there

Have fun! And come on peeps, lets get this back up to 5 stars :)
Happy Holidays!
