Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Light and Night was a wonderful little song that Tally Hall wrote and recorded with Nellie McKay for Kate 
DiCamillo's novel "The Magician's Elephant". It is based around an oom-pa oom-pa pattern and it's very very
easy to get. If you're not sure exactly how to pluck it, just play along with the song, it's very natural
and straightforward.

NOTE: all of these chords should be played barred, otherwise you'll have the wrong inversion and it'll 
sound weird.

INTRO: Cm

   Cm                                 (Eb)      Fm
We ought to leave a light on, leave a light on, underneath the moon.
Bb                                  Cm
Sitting in the sight of every eye.  I believe in you.
Ab                     Eb
Open your window, look out and see me.
Bbm                Ab         G
Slow I am coming a long way to be.


   Cm                          (Eb)   Fm
An accidental light on. Such as I am. By the lonely sun.

Cold but I'm outside and waiting to see.
Bbm                     Ab        G
Blowing the snow coming closer to me.

Tonight I'm arriving alive and alight.

Tonight all the black and the gray and the white.

And I want to be like you are the one light. I want to see your eyes looking back and into mine.



Cm                                 (Eb)       Fm
Better when the light comes in the night time opening the door.
Bb                                            Cm
Hoping to be right, it's open every night. So whatcha waiting for?
Ab                    Eb
Open your window look out and see me.
