Here's the first phrase, straight down strum -- Kumbaya, my Lord ... Kumbaya (strumming). Now, the second phrase -- Kumbaya, my Lord -- (strumming) Kumbaya (strumming). Let's go to the third phrase same as the first phrase. Kumbaya, oh but it does stay on A7 for the first two notes. Kumbaya, my Lord. Kumbaya ... and then the fourth phrase to G. Kuuummm, Kumbaya...Kuuuum, Kumbaya...

Okay, let's do it again. You follow along, I'll go slow and I'll do without stopping. We will start from the beginning. The first two notes are actually called a pick up but that does not mean it's a full measure and the first full measure is actually starting with Ya. Here we go.

I'll start the strum two notes before we come in, two strums -- 1, 2 Kumbaya, my Lord ... Kumbaya (strumming), Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya (strumming) Kumbaya, my Lord (Kumbaya) Ohhh Lord, Kumbaya...Ohhh Lord, Kumbaya (strumming). Very good!
