There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This song is recorded in the key of Bb, so you must capo on the third fret to use these
and match the recorded pitch. The song is played very briskly and is a good exercise in
chord changes!

Noel: "I wrote 'Early In The Morning' in about one hour in my apartment on East fifth
It turned out to be such a great up tempo gospel piece that Peter and I were inspired to
"Very Last Day" as a sort of sequel. Though it seldom gets the credit it's due, gospel
is responsible for a lot of what has become part of the folk music tradition. As Mary
pointed out in her introductions from stage, much of the music of the faith community
wound its way through the labor movement of the '30s and '40s and the civil rights
of the '50s and '60s. So many times it speaks of an ideal society; a 'heaven' if you 
a hope for a better, more just life."




                         G C G                       G C G
Well early in the morning,     about the break of day,
              Bm                        Am - D7
I ask the Lord,   "Help me find the way!"
                 G C G        C            G C G
Help me find the way   to the promised     land
            Em                   A7
This lonely body needs a helping hand
          G   Em          Bm  D7          G C G C G C G
I ask the Lord to help me please find the way.
                     G C G             C       G
When the new day's a dawning, I bow my head in prayer.
              Bm                       Am - D7
I pray to the Lord, "Won't you lead me there?"
                   G C G         C      G C G
Won't you guide me safely to the Golden Stair?
                   Em               A7
Won't you let this body your burden share?
              G   Em                   Bm  D7       C  G C G C G C G C G C G C G
I pray to the Lord, "Won't you lead me please, lead me there?"
                  G C G                      G C G
When the judgment comes to find the world in shame
                 Bm                      Am - D7
When the trumpet blows won't you call my name?
                 G C G                 G C G
When the thunder rolls and the heavens rain
                   Em                 A7
When the sun turns black, never shine again
                 G   Em                   Bm  D7          G C G C G C G
When the trumpet blows, won't you call me please, call my name!

I think you can use G and Cadd9 instead G + C

G (320033)
Cadd9 (x32033)
