D
She's got a smile that it seems to me
Cadd9
Reminds me of childhood memories
       G                                         D
Where everything was as fresh as a bright blue sky
D
Now and then when i see her face 
    Cadd9
She takes me away to that special place 
           G                                        D
And if i stay too long I'd probably break down and cry 


A    C                   D
Oooooh Sweet Child of Mine
A    C                  D
Oooooh Sweet Love of Mine

D
She's got eyes of the bluest sky
Cadd9
And if they thought of rain 
G                                     D
I'd hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain
D
Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place
      Cadd9
Where as a child i'd hide
     G                                      D
And prey for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by 


A    C                  D
Oooooh Sweet Child of Mine
A    C                  D
Oooooh Sweet Love of Mine

If you want to play the song in the default chords, I think I may have figured out the beginning of an appropriate riff. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

do -2 to match the chords with the riff, works better for singing :)

I found -7 works best for me. I am waiting to hear which fits best with my partner’s voice. We are learning to play.

Try to watch the ukulele teacher’s tutorial of this on YouTube, it’s way easier. He used the chords C-Bb-F-C for the verses and G-Bb-C for the chorus. Also, the strumming pattern he used was DDUUD 2x for each chord (for the verse) but for the chorus the chord C will only be the one repeated twice.

Hey guys! Instead of using Cadd9, you could use EM. They sound very similar, (not the same!), but similar. Hope this helps you! :)

Playing Am instead of Cadd9 is easier and sounds similar!
