Verse:
C
Look at the stars,
                       G
Look how they shine for you,
                     F
And everything you do,
Yeah, they were all yellow.

C
I came along,
                  G
I wrote a song for you,
                         F
And all the things you do,
And it was called "Yellow".

C                     G
     So then I took my turn,
                            F
Oh what a thing to have done,
And it was all "Yellow."
C

Chorus:
F        Am              G
Your skin, Oh yeah your skin and bones,
F      Am            G
Turn into something beautiful,
F      Am             G          
You know, you know I love you so,
F 
      You know I love you so.

Verse:
C
I swam across,
   G 
I jumped across for you,
      F
Oh what a thing to do.
Cos you were all "Yellow",

C 
I drew a line,
 G
I drew a line for you,
      F
Oh what a thing to do,
And it was all "Yellow."
C

Chorus:
F        Am              G
Your skin, Oh yeah your skin and bones,
F      Am            G
Turn into something beautiful,
F       Am             G
you know, For you I'd bleed myself dry,
F 
      For you I'd bleed myself dry.

Interlude: C G F C
     C
It's true,
G
Look how they shine for you,
F
Look how they shine for you,
C
Look how they shine for, 
G
Look how they shine for you,
F
Look how they shine for you,
Look how they shine.

Outro:
C
Look at the stars,
       Gm
Look how they shine for you,
   F
And all the things that you do.

Dropping in a bar of C7 before the switch to the F at the start of the chorus adds a really nice segue.

For those curious and fancy trying it in “hard mode”, the original key for this song is B major.

Also not sure if this is just how it’s showing for me or for everyone, but the chord changes are out of place further you go down the song. They should mostly be at the ends of lines, but they seem to have drifted. Could just be me though…

If you tune your uke down a half step so it A#,B,D#,G# it sounds really good and for this you do not transpose it.
