A       Dbm                Gb             Bm
You remind me of a former love that I once knew
        Dm                         E
And you carry a little speech with you
A            Dbm                          Gb
We were holding hands walking through the middle of the street
                Bm          Dm                E
It's fine with me, I'm just taking in the scenery


    D              Dm               Amaj7  Gbm
You remind me of a few of my famous friends
           B                   Dm          E         
Well, that all depends what you qualify as friends
   D               Dm              Amaj7   Gb
You remind me of a few of my famous friends
           B                    Dm         E
Well, that all depends what you qualify as friends


A                       Dbm                       Gb
Take a chance, take your shoes off, dance in the rain
                  Bm               Dm                  E
And I was flashing around and the news spread all over town
A       Dbm                                     Gb           
I'm not complaining that it's raining, I'm just saying that I like it a lot
             Bm             Dm                       E
More than you think, if the sun would come out and sing with me


     D             Dm               Amaj7  Gbm
You remind me of a few of my famous friends
            B                     Dm       E
Well, that all depends what you qualify as friends
    D              Dm              Amaj7  Gbm
You remind me of a few of my famous friends
           B                     Dm         E          A
Well, that all depends what you qualify as friends

  1. I’ve been trying to learn this once since forever, and I’m proud to say that I’ve pretty-much got it now. Keep practising you lot! We’ll get there

  2. Lola_myukulele

    I can’t figure out how to play Gb. My pinky can’t reach that far. Any suggestions?

  3. dallonsdisco

    I WAS PLAYING THIS AND I WAS LIKE WAIT WHATS AT THE END AND THEN I REALIZED IT WAS NORTHERN DOWNPOUR AND NOW IM CRYNG

  4. D D-U D-U D-U

  5. ProbablyPanickingAtADiscoSomewhere

    +3 has easier chords for beginners!

  6. ProbablyPanickingAtADiscoSomewhere

    For +3, I prefer playing a C instead of Db… I feel like it just finishes the song on a better note than the Db.

  7. Pete Wentz from My Chemical Romance

    Strumming Pattern?

  8. if you want an alternative for E use 4442

  9. An alternative to Dbm is barring the fourth fret with your first finger. And with your second finger on the fifth fret of the E string and your ring finger on the sixth fret of the C string

  10. Thatweirdone

    Of course the only song I really have wanted to play on the uke is the hardest possible

  11. if yall need it, dflat minor can also be played like b minor, but two frets up. so 6444. bar the 4th fret and then put your ring finger on the g string

  12. How do people not find dbm impossible?! Does anyone have a solution??

    • myfriendisagoodsinger

      I put my thumb on the g string, then bar the other 3 strings with my ring finger. I’m probably not doing it right, but it works.

    • I’d recommend that you barre first fret with first finger and then hit the fourth fret pitches with your fourth finger if you’re not already. It is great for building barre skills and pinky strengths as a bonus. Good luck!

  13. Some of the lyrics were off….

    * Stanza 1, Line 2: “And you carry a little speech with you” should be “And you carry a little piece with you”
    * Stanza 3, Line 2: “And I was flashing around” should be “And I was splashing around”

    I also play it on +3 since my voice is higher (and it’s a lot easier IMO). Thanks!

  14. Sarah plays ukulele not tragedies

    By “First 3 strings,” do you mean G C and E?

  15. If anyone is having trouble with chords and want to find alternatives then u could download the free Ukulele app (the app has a man with a beard as the icon) and if u go there and click “Tools”, then click “Chord library”, and put in the chord u want, u can find different ways to play it by sliding u finger across the screen (slide up to go down the fret board and slide down to get closer to the top of the fret board ) and that will change the formation of the chord.

  16. What's a blurry face?

    +3 is really easy and but capo on first fret

  17. Cute potato

    Aww it has the bit from northern downpour in it too!

  18. #make Brendon's forehead a national monument

    If you’re having trouble with E, an alternative E is first 3 strings on the 4th fret, with the last string on the 2nd

  19. MushroomUkulele

    This is my favourite song im so happy
