New Star Shining

capo in 4th fret

(1st verse)
C                        G                    Am7             C  G
They didn't own a house  No crib, no toys were waiting
C                          G              Dm                         C  G
Still, they had their love for the child they were anticipating
            C                    G             Am                     C  G
He was born one winter night on a road between two towns
        Dm                        Am7                                  F
C
They wrapped Him up so warm and tight and said, "It looks like heaven's 
come
down."


(chorus)
                  F            G                  Am7      C
There was a new star shining in the sky up above
           Dm                  Am7                 Dm                      
C
G
By His light that winter night they found peace and perfect love
       F          G         Am7       C        F
If we want to find it, I know we always will
                 Dm            G                  C
'Cause that new star is shining for us still


(2nd verse)
C                           G              Am7
C  G
They worried how to feed Him.  Simple trade was all they knew
         Dm                  Am7                           Dm
C  G
It was hard enough to make ends meet when they were only two
           C                          G                     Am7
C G
But the cold, the dark, and hunger, couldn't take away their joy
              Dm                          Am7                    F
C
And they knew that they would find a way for that precious baby boy


(chorus)
                  F            G                  Am7      C
There was a new star shining in the sky up above
           Dm                  Am7                 Dm                      
C
G
By His light that winter night they found peace and perfect love
       F          G         Am7       C        F
If we want to find it, I know we always will
                 Dm            G                  C
'Cause that new star is shining for us still
       F          G         Am7       C        F
If we want to find it, I know we always will
                 Dm            G                  C
'Cause that new star is shining for us still



This song was obviously released for Christmas.  But Mr Skaggs also 
released it on an album quite some time ago.  I had this album at one time.  But
since lost track of it.  Hope you enjoy it.  I still do.
