G  C  Em  D x2

G          C        Em           D
If you are falling, then I would catch you
G          C      Em         D
You need a light, I'd find a match
C       D        G                Em
Cause I love the way you say good morning
C        D                 G
and you, take me the way I am

G  C  Em  D

G          C       Em           D
If you are chilly, here take my sweater
G            C       Em           D
Your head is aching, I'll make it better
C       D        G               Em
Cause I love the way you call me baby
C       D                 G
and you take me the way I am

G  C  Em  D x2

G            C        Em             D
I'll buy you rogaine, when you start losing all your hair
G      C        Em         D
Sew on patches, to all you tear
C       D                    G          Em
Cause I love you more then I could ever promise
C       D                 G
and you take me the way I am.

C   D                 Em  A7
You take me the way I am
C   D                 G
You take me the way I am

  1. instead of doing d for the melody i used c and this is on the -2 one

  2. Personally, I like the sound of -2 better, even though the Bb chord is kinda hard to play. I am fairly new to the ukulele though so I bet the more I practice the easier it’ll be to play it. :)

      same! less common chords, but you really don’t have to move your fingers around too much, and much easier to sing along (for me) without having to overuse head voice.

  3. Maya Chemical Romance

    SO glad I found this! Ingrid Michaelson is my childhood!


    something is wrong with me. help.

  5. Love this so much. Me and my dad are rocking out to it 24/7!

  6. Hello! I noticed that, in the -2 version, it says to play C at the end of the set of chords between the second and third verse. Also, “cause I love you more then I could ever promise”, it should be than, not then. Cheers!

  7. I like it

  8. I suggest plucking instead of strumming it’s sounds great, but it’s really personal preference.
