Product Information

Cat's In the Cradle by Harry Chapin - Digital Sheet Music (Easy Piano)
Harry Chapin's career as a popular singer/songwriter was cut short by an auto accident in 1981, yet he left behind a series of recordings that his fans continue to treasure decades after his death. Chapin was never a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter. Chapin earned a devoted audience during the '70s, through his music and his charity work as a social activist. Cat's In the Cradle is perhaps his most famous, endearing and enduring chestnut.

I was asked by my pastor to actually perform this song in church. It was used as part of the message. I had always enjoyed this song. The message of this song is try to take time for your family and the important things and everything else will fall into place. So secular songs can really be used to get a meassage accross in chuerch. I grew up in the same era as the artist of this song Harry Chapin. He had many great songs, too. I enjoyed doing this song. I played my ovation 12 string acoustic guitar on this song.

My middle school guitar class loves this song and arrangement. It works very well for beginners and intermediate groups.
