remember keys
       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.

      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

    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.

       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.

  1. For strumming, I pluck G and C at the same time and then DU UDU

  2. man something about that album covers always creeped me out

  3. Ukulele_girl_island

    For the strumming pattern you can do DDU UDU

  4. For the strumming pattern, I usually just use DDU in a slow manner for each chord… it gives a pretty peaceful vibe. That’s just what I use :)

    • Thanks, Im a beginner, kind of advance for a beginner though, I was wondering does it matter that not all chords are in standered tuning?

  5. instead of Bb, it should be Db

  6. I love the song, my favorite. I’m a beginner at ukelele and this will be my masterpiece.

  7. What a wonderful song!

  8. 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

  9. I really love this song. As for the strumming, I just find a Vedio of it on YouTube and go from there. There are many deferent ways to do this. Just do what feels right to you.
