Harry Belafonte - Jump In The Line Guitar Chords

Harry Belafonte

adult standards, brill building pop, calypso, christmas

Chords: D, G, A
Fairly straight forward song, this is my interpretation of it. The song uses the same 3 chords throughout,
however the sequence does change a little between the verse/chorus. You'll see what I mean.

Chords have been placed as specifically as possible so you know what syllable to play them on - the only
place they're not so precise are the spoken parts in the later pre-choruses these are a bit more difficult
to pinpoint.

Capo on 3rd fret, transpose +3 if you don't have a capo.

Chords used:

D - 000232
G - 320033
