Verse 1:
Bb                  Gm
What a perfect afternoon
   Fmaj7                      F7
to listen to my grandpop's uke
             Bb                    Gm
-you know- I never got to hear him play
            Fmaj7                 F7
but he’d be glad to see it put to use
 
Verse 2:
  Bb                        Gm
I wonder if he hears these strings
  Fmaj7                    F7
I wonder if he hears these tunes
         Bb                   Gm
you know Nan is lovely as can be
    Fmaj7                   F7
you sure know how to pick a view
         F7
oh oh oh oh

Verse 3:
Bb                      Gm
Man it’s such a perfect day
            Fmaj7             F7
he wouldn’t want it any other way
        Bb                         Gm
he’d be sipping on some sweet iced tea
             Fmaj7            F7
and probably thinking of new story
 
Verse 4:
    Bb                      Gm
The more I get to know your girl
    Fmaj7                 F7
the more I get she misses you
    Bb                         Gm
but she would never change her mind
          Fmaj7               F7
she would carry it again for you
