Malvina Reynolds – Little Boxes chords

Chords
Transpose:
This is a correct, easy to play version of the song. It was originally written in the
key of F, but I transposed it to E.

The song is written in 3/4, so I like to play it picking the root note and then the
bottom strings twice to emphasize the whimsical nature of the melody. I also tried to place
the chords above the right syllable, didn't have a lot of luck struggling with the 
formatting though. Just remember
