A hit single in 1966 for Peter, Paul and Mary, The Cruel War is an achingly beautiful traditional melody that lends itself perfectly to multi-part harmony singing.

This arrangement is taken directly from the new book Great Popular Songs, a collection of leveled supplementary repertoire for the Ukulele in the Classroom series.
