Gilly Gilly Good Morning

This happy little morning song would be a great storytime opener, and my thanks to Jbrary for introducing me to it. Gilly Gilly Good Morning is cited as a traditional American tune in the sources I’ve found, but if you come across a credit for it, please let me know.

I prefer singing this song G/D, but it works with C/G7 or D/A7 too. If you’d like to play a slightly richer sound, Dany Rosevear at Singing Games for Children has a three chord version for you.
