10 Ukulele Oh So EASY 3 & 4 chord tunes

10 Oh So Easy Ukulele 3 & 4 Chord Tunes

Published by Michael James at Shakespir

Copyright 2017 Michael James

The Ukulele is…

 

Oh so easy to learn – just 3 or 4 chords will open up hundreds of tunes.

cheap to buy – go to the toy store and buy a cheap child’s ukulele for not a lot of cash.

fun to play – and a great party piece for a great singalong.

 

Plus, even you play it badly “…it’s still good enough for jazz”

 

A deceptively easy instrument, so long as you’re not planning on being a rock-star.

 

Copy the 4 chords you will need from the cover of this book for these and many other songs.

 

Too much emphasis is placed upon knowing the basics.

How to hold the instrument.
Which way is up. Which way is down.
How to read sheet music.
The “circle of fifths”?
Tablatures?
etc etc.

You don’t need any of that.

Let’s just get jammin’ and have a great time.

 

 

You will enjoy!

Michael James

 

 

1: U2 – Still Have Found (What I’m Looking For)

 

 

C

I have climbed highest mountain

 

I have run through the fields

F C

Only to be with you, only to be with you

 

C

I have run, I have crawled

 

I have scaled these city walls

F C

These city walls, only to be with you

 

Chorus:

G F C

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

G F C

But I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

 

C

I have kissed honey lips

 

Felt the healing in her fingertips

F C

It burned like fire, this burning desire

 

C

I have spoke with the tongue of angels

 

I have held the hand of a devil

F C

It was warm in the night, I was cold as a stone

 

Chorus>

 

C

I believe in the kingdom come

 

Then all the colors will bleed into one

F C

Bleed into one, well yes I’m still running

 

C

You broke the bonds and you loosed the chains

 

Carried the cross of my shame

F C

Of my shame, you know I believed it

 

Chorus> x2

Sayin’, Let’s get together and feel all right

 

C Am F C

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One love)

Am G F G

There must be some way out of here

Said the joker to the thief

There’s too much confusion,

Am G F G

I can’t get no relief.

Am G F G

Businessmen, they drink my wine,

Am G F G

Plowmen dig my earth

Am G F G

None of them along the line

Am G F G

Know what any of it is worth.

Am G F G

No reason to get excited,

Am G F G

The thief, he kindly spoke

Am G F G

There are many here among us

Am G F G

Who feel that life is but a joke.

But you and I, we’ve been through that

And this is not our fate,

So let us not talk falsely now

The hour is getting late.

All along the watchtower

The princess kept the view

Am G F G

While all the women came and went

Am G F G

Barefoot servants, too

Am G F G

Outside in the cold distance

Am G F G

A wildcat did growl

Am G F G

Two riders were approaching

Am G F G

And the wind began to howl

5: Neil Young – Love Is A Rose

 

 

C F C

Love is a rose but you better not pick it;

G C

it only grows when it’s on the vine.

F C

Handful of thorns and you’ll know you missed it;

G C

you lose your love when you say the word “mine”.

 

F C

I wanna see what’s never been seen,

G C

I wanna live that age old dream.

F C

Come on, lads, we can go together;

G C

let’s take the best right now,

(no chords)

take the best right now.

I wanna go to an old hoedown

long ago in a western town.

Pick me up cause my feet are draggin’;

give me a lift and I’ll hay your wagon.

Love is a rose but you better not pick it;

it only grows when it’s on the vine.

Handful of thorns and you’ll know you missed it;

you lose your love when you say the word “mine”.

 

C F C G C

Love is a rose, love is a rose.

C F C G C

Love is a rose, love is a rose.
