  • Mr_Swag says:

    Actually it sounds better if you know how to chuck . So its down chuck up up chuck . And you change chords according to the beat of the song .

  • Sir_panda says:

    If you guys know how to chuck, I went with:

    D-CU-UCU.

    Play this twice for each chord.

    Cheers :)

  • Margaux says:

  • Aussierex says:

    I love the song and its so easy to learn

  • Emily says:

    Hi. I love this song and thanks so much for uploading. But PLEASE write the chords on all lyrics. Thanks!:)

  • DylPickle says:

    Yah, I absolutely love the song, but it, for me, is really hard to play because you have to memorize the chords on the other lyrics. So please write the chords on all the lyrics. Thanks! It is still really good though!
    :)

  • Minty says:

    What is some good chords for this last bit
    “You can count on me ‘cos I can count on you!”
    :D

  • laylay says:

    hey can u please put the chords throughout the whole song cause its hard to memorize exactly when they change and stuff. also what chords are you supposed to use for the very last line?

  • MabelPines says:

    I love this song!!!! Thank you for putting it up!!!

  • hahameowmix says:

    I definitely agree that it’s difficult to track the strumming of the final verse and chorus without scrolling back up, please put the chords the rest of the way through! Thanks!

  • Mary Claire says:

    I would also love it if you put all the chords in! And I love your profile pic hahameowmix DAVID TENNAT! Sorry fangirl moment y’all

  • Emma says:

    Oh and For the shorter chords I just did D-DU-DU

  • Doctor Who says:

    for the end “You can count on me ‘cos I can count on you! I did F, Em, C

  • Jeramiah says:

    I think for the end it’s F, G, and then C

  • ninasig says:

    Please put the chords throughout the whole song! :) Thanks

  • pucca.6 says:

    For each chord you could try plucking the C string and then the the G & A strings together and repeating this. It sounds really good! :D

  • tips:-) says:

    The vary last line would be the same as the last ooooh. Also there is a pattern for those who did not notice. Its, c,em,am,g,f twice then its dm,em,f,g once.then start over. The last line with the ooh. Would be c,em,am,g,f….,.
    Am. G. F(one strum)
    You can count on me cause I can count on you

  • zigzag4000 says:

    finally got the hang of it!

  • thehawhdson says:

    for the last little bit you can just hold that F until at the end finish with a quick C

  • Matt smith the doctor says:

    It is really hard to catch on and could you please put the cords in the song and not above because I couldn’t see when to change cords. Other than that I think is good but defenitly not for beginners!!;)

  • Hunger Games Fan!!! says:

    It is pretty hard to memorise the chords for the last bit and you can’t really keep so scrolling up and down so could you put the chords through out the whole song!!! Thanks anyway though, its really easy to learn and a great song!!!

  • new uke player says:

    this was great! i really like plucking the c string then the 2 outside strings!!!!!!!!!! it sounds amazing! i do wish there were chords thru the whole song but i learned it really fast and memorized it pretty much. thx @pucca.6 for plucking advice!

  • I Kant spell gud says:

    Hey minty try GFC for the last part

  • ChelsieBrownie says:

    I love this song and I really thought the pattern would match best for D DU UD. I also really love this song and it’s easy to play and I can easily memorize this. Whoever made this did an amazing job. Thanks! :-)

  • MJCatUker says:

    Fantastic song! I love the layout; the people that need chords for every note are right, but not for me I think it’s fine. Some peeps have a gift of memory! :D lol great job though

  • Kay says:

  • littlelady230 says:

    I think for the last line, F G C (Power chord) works quite well

  • KitKatty says:

    i have been playing ukulele for SIX DAYS and i can play this song really easily!

    my little sister keeps on requesting me to play it ;D

    but it kinda’ hard to play fluently without ALL the chords

    THANX I <3 THIS SONG ITS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • griffinpuff says:

    I did this song for a fourth grade production, and it brings back so many memories. I love this song so much! Thank you for doing it. I’m very critical about lyrics to songs I know well, but I didn’t see anything worth noting. The only thing I would ask for is chords throughout the whole song. I absolutely SUCK at memorizing chords; I do better with numbers. As for the last line, I can’t get the chords right (I’m very new to ukulele) so if someone could tell me them???

  • slitherclaw says:

    I think the chords for the last line are F, G, C (on the words count, I, you). I saw that someone said they are C, G, and F, but F isn’t a good chord to end on, so I just switched F and C. If anyone else has better chords PLEASE tell me.

    (P.S. I like your name griffinpuff)

  • Señor Q! says:

    Love the song- thanks for submitting the chords!!
    Don’t change a thing!!!
    The work is perfect!

    Q!

  • Skye says:

    For some easy chords at the end you can just play F, G, C but I’ve heard there’s some alternatives. Also, could you add in all the chords please? Thanks :D

  • daantjie_2000 says:

    For the “you can count on me cause i can count on you, i did one strum for each chord and i did a C the “you” and then a G on the “count” an AM for the “on me”, an F for the “cause I” and then G for “can count” and finally a C ending on “you”

  • QTpie0011 says:

    @Minty I think this works:

    F. G. -C- let ring
    You can count on me ’cause I can count on you

  • QTpie0011 says:

    2 strums each except past chord

  • Yu Xuan says:

  • YX32 says:

    Thank you

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

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
