Growing Wool, German folk song

This German folk song is written in 4/4 time and is harmonized with only two chords,
G Major and the D7.
It is in the key of G Major which has one sharp.
F will be sharped throughout the song.

The accompanying bass consists of an arrangement of the G triad in root position,
and the D7 in the first inversion.

Use correct fingering (the numbers between the treble and bass staves) and you will have a smooth melody.

Add a 4/4 rhythm . Begin ver-r-ry slowly .
When you can play it well slowly, then try it faster.
