D    E    Gbm           D   E    Gbm
I’ve been watching you for some time
D     E    Gbm               A     D
Can’t stop staring at those ocean eyes
D  E    Gbm         D E    Gbm
Burning cities and napalm skies
D  E    Gbm                  A     D
Fifteen flares inside those ocean eyes
     A     D
Your ocean eyes

Chorus:
   D E Gbm  D E Gbm
No fair
           D           E       Gbm
You really know how to make me cry
                     A     D
When you gimme those ocean eyes
    D E Gbm  D E Gbm
I'm scared
           D           E          Gbm
I've never fallen from quite this high

Those ocean eyes

I've been walking through a world gone blind

Can't stop thinking of your diamond mind
D   E   Gbm            D       E    Gbm
Careful creature made friends with time
   D    E   Gbm            A       D
He left her lonely with a diamond mind
          A     D   
And those ocean eyes

  1. You can always just take out the D chord. You don’t have to Play it and it makes it 10xs easier for the beginners :)

    Dude… I figured out the strumming pattern out myself but I remember the times where I was a beginner and still needed the strumming pattern to be given to me… we’re a community trying to help each other out… dont get so butthurt, Marta

  3. Don'tBeRudeToBegginersHunty

    Not everybody is as advanced as you. They may need more help with the rythm. ESPECIALLY beginners.

  4. Jazzimine

    I have been playing the ukulele for YEARS, and I STILL need help with the strumming patterns! Just because someone asks doesn’t mean you need to beat them up over it.

  5. you can’t replace chord D which can be difficult for beginners. to anyone having trouble, shift your hand upwards so it’s easier to grasp the strings. trust me, it helps a lot!!! good luck (:

  6. I agree, I figure it out myself almost all the time and I’m self taught and have only been playing for a few weeks. It isn’t really that hard

  7. sUmOnE Is hEAtEd lmaoo. why tho.

  8. what's the strumming pattern

    Dude, I understand it’s copyright, but seriously, you don’t need to be butthurt over it.

  9. a PeRsOn WhO wAnTs The StRuMmInG pAtTeRn

    What was your intention of this comment?

  10. for the strumming pattern, i find the pattern “DD” really easy and useful

  11. Says you telling people that they can’t share a strumming patter that worked for them and are trying to help others “we’re all her to learn music and have fun” well let people have fun by helping beginners learn an easy strumming pattern

  12. Penelope Christie

    Umm, some people are just beginners and maybe need a little help with strumming patterns, not everyone is as “advanced” as you. I’ve been playing uke for years and it’s still helpful when people share strumming patterns. What do you think the comments are for?!

  13. As someone new to ukulele it just helps. That is not a bad thing

  14. To annoy you

    I’m sorry…
    WhATS ThE sTRummInG PaTTeRN?!!!!?????

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
