With all my heart and soul, I love this song.  I think it is one of the best songs ever written.  This illustration by Eric Puybaret is incredibly beautiful and wonderfully includes the seldom heard introduction that Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg wrote for it.

Addendum 9/1/2015

A lovely comment to this blog reminded of Ella Fitzgerald’s version of OVER THE RAINBOW, which also includes the song introduction.  As with everything Ella Fitgerald did, it is just so good:

The Big Bell and the Little Bell
Words and Music by Martin Kalmanoff
Illustrated by Alastair Graham

A wonderful book with a relevant message, “Those who make the biggest noise aren’t always as important as they think,” in this time of horrible loud mouth politicians honking about their reviling drivel.  Some might dismiss a song in a picture book, but it has something important to say.

YANKEE DOODLE, AN ILLUSTRATED SONG
https://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2013/01/30/little-house-songs-yankee-doodle/

**********************

This is Yankee Doodle for Sing Books with Emily. No offense to the original, but I think EVERYONE should be handy, so I adapted some chords to play it on my guitar and slightly altered the words at the end and finished it off w a musical AAA-AAA-MEN.

Yankee Doodle for SBWE
Yankee Doodle for Sing Books with Emily (first draft)
Traditional Words and Tune
Words Slightly Adapted by ELEG for SBWE

I’m planning to add the 1776 text, too, to complete a nice groovy little song.  The full text would be the following (played with chords in the photo:

YANKEE DOODLE FOR SING BOOKS WITH EMILY
Traditional Words and Tune
Words Slightly Adapted by ELEG for SBWE
Chords by ELEG for SBWE

Yankee Doodle keep it up
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Mind the music and the step
And let us all be handy

In Seventeen-hundred Seventy-six
On the Fourth Day of July
Our Independence we declared
In the fight for liberty

Yankee Doodle keep it up
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Mind the music and the step
And let us all be handy
