Verse:
       F        C     Dm        Am
I see trees of green, red roses too
Gm         F       A7         Dm     
I see them bloom, for me and you,
      Bb                C                F
And I think to myself, What a wonderful world.

Verse:
      F        C        Dm        Am
I see skies of blue and clouds of white,
Gm                 F        A7           Dm
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night,
      Bb                C                F
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Verse:
    C                          F
The colours of a rainbow are so pretty in the sky
C                       F
Are also on the faces of people going by
        Dm             Am          Dm         Am
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
Dm             Am     F      C
They’re really saying I love you.

Verse:
       F      C     Dm           Am
I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
Gm                 F     A7             Dm
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know,
      Bb                C               F
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

      Bb                C                F
Yes I think to myself, what a wonderful world.

I like playing this on 7+ and mashing it up with Twenty One Pilots Can’t Help Falling in Love! View Renee Dominque’s video to see what I’m talking about

Twenty One Pilots did a cover, they didn’t write the song Elvis Presley did.

I think the F on ‘I love you’ should be Gm? I can’t make the vocals fit elsewise

I fully agree that is a smart move

You’re right – it’s F on I, Gm on love, and C on you. :))

I played this with the chords c g f a7, then f c g Am, and then f g c and it worked better. The next chords are g f Am then a7 c a7 c and then a7 c g am g. Try it and it might work out better for your voice :)

Very puzzling. I’m “good enough” to gig on upright bass in four jazz groups and a couple of big bands, and have played guitar for 40 years, but I prefer playing uke to guitar.

I play both guitar and ukulele. Some songs I sing for my church group sound better on a uke, some sound better on a guitar. My dad plays the guitar so when I play with him it’s usually on the uke for a sound contrast. Although I respect the guitar I respect the ukulele too.
