I'm Peanut Butter and You are Jelly

April 23, 2013, 10:29 pm - James Farrer

A number of years ago my friend taught me a song that he learned from his uncle who learned it from the guy that wrote it that was in BYU Men's Chorus with him. At the time no one had heard it and we worked out our own chords and strumming to it. Since that time is has become a family favorite that gets played almost every time the guitars come out.

Also since that time Inside Out, an A Cappella group from our area, actually published it on one of their CD's. I've still never figured out who actually wrote it, but was asked for the chords and lyrics so I wrote them down as I play them. And since I have them all typed up and prettified I figured I'd share them so others can enjoy them.

Lyrics and chords are available here

Here's the YouTube video I made of the finger picking and strumming I do.

A note about the second verse, my favorite kind of jam/jelly is strawberry so I took the liberty of switching strawberry and rasberry, if you're one of those crazy misinformed people that think rasberry is best feel free to switch it back. If you have to... :-)

Enjoy!

2013-08-15 Update: I just found out that it was written by Ron Ahrens and was originally released on the album Smile by The Ahrens Band and is available on iTunes.
