    Download the Lyrics and Chords

    YOU CAN PLAY IN THE SAME KEY AS THE FIRST VIDEO IN GCEA TUNING, IF YOU PUT YOUR CAPO ON THE FIRST FRET. We're going to need some clappers on the 2 & 4 beats!

    For the [G7] to [G7add5], start with your [G7] then, leaving your 1st and 3rd fingers where they are, just slide your 2nd finger from the 3rd string-2nd fret, to the 3rd string-3rd fret.

    There's also a quick run-down of chords to be aware of here:

    But it [Am] really doesn’t [Caug] matter

    Grab a [C] chair and fill your [D7] platter

    Place your 2nd finger on the 4th string-2nd fret for the [Am], then put your 1st finger on the 4th string-1st fret and your 4th finger on the 1st string-3rd fret for the [Caug], then lift just your first finger off the 4th string, which will still leave your 4th finger on the 1st string-3rd fret for the [C] chord, and then leaving your 4th finger in place on the 1st string-3rd fret, place your 1st finger across the entire 2nd fret (barre the 2nd fret) to make the [D7] chord.

    "If I Knew You Were Comin' I'd've Baked a Cake" is a popular song written by Al Hoffman, Bob Merrill, and Clem Watts and published in 1950.

    The best known version of the song was recorded by Eileen Barton in January 1950. The recording was released by National Records as catalog number 9103. When the song became too big a hit for National to handle, it arranged with Mercury Records to help with distribution. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on March 3, 1950 and lasted 15 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1.

    In 1962, Barton's recording of the song was included in a list of 101 Perennial Singles Hits compiled by Billboard – a group "For year-round programming by juke box operators and radio stations ... a catalog of standards that can provide consistent earnings for operators and a wealth of material for discussion by broadcasters."
