Chocolate Box Baby

Music and lyrics by Paulette Sheard

Paulette Sheard, autoharp, acoustic bass, vocals, harmony. Five Oak Green, England. I want to thank my daughter, Lydia, for helping me in the recording and production process; as a technophobe, I couldn't have done it without her!

I wrote this song three years ago when I was particularly struck by the sometimes sugary image that the Nativity conjures up; I wanted to convey what I believe to be perhaps a more realistic view of that special day. The autoharp used in this song is a D'Aigle Cascade G/D diatonic.
