Once in royal David's city, stood a lowly cattle shed Where a mother laid her Baby, In a manger for His bed Mary was that maiden mild Jesus Christ her little child. That was Once in Royal David's City. One of the few Christmas carol that refers to Jesus' birthplace as David's city. I find that interesting. This song could be broken down to really just F, C and B flat. And those chords look like this. In the left hand we have F, C and B flat. Pretty simple. So, since it's so simple, we add in a little scale half way through it. This is starting at Mary was that maiden mild. Starting with your pinkie on the B flat, just walk on up until you get to your thumb and you've run out of fingers. At that point roll over so that your three finger or your middle finger presses down on the G. And then we finish out all the notes. And that scale is repeated also for Jesus Christ her little child. Jesus Christ her little child. "
