Just a small town girl, living in a lonely world

Working hard to get my fill, everybody wants a thrill

Paying anything to roll the dice, just one more time


EE chord              BB chord               DbmDbm chord               AA chord         
Some will win, some will lose, some were born to sing the blues
 EE chord            BB chord                   AbmAbm chord           AA chord

  12. Hi I’m new to ukulele and I was wondering what the things are in the first bit? I don’t get it, it’s before the lyrics and actual chords

    • Niamh- this is kinda late but the thing at the top is a riff. As you can see the letters on the side (g, c, e, a) represent the strings. The numbers represent the fret. So u pluck the note on the fret it says. Sorry if this confusing it’s hard to explain. Hope that helped :)

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

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
