Verse:
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D        
I believe submarines
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G       D  
Underneath deep blue seas
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G       D  
Saw the flags: Japanese
G             C  - Cadd9 -  G       D  
No one will believe me

Chorus:
Em                     D 
Ran back to the town bar and
G
I told the people how
Em                      D
I had seen the submarine and
C
Everyone laughed aloud 

Interlude:
    G    C  Cadd9  G      D  
    G    C  Cadd9  G       D  

Verse:
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  
I did spy periscopes
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  
Dead of night on the eastern coast
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  
The police made them jokes
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  
Told me I'd seen a ghost

Chorus:
Em                   D                    G
Everyone thinks I'm a liar  No one knows the truth
Em                   D                     C
If it was a bigger fire I would be on the roof

Interlude:
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  
G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  

Verse:
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay - Let me go! -
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
No one trusts what I say - I don't know! -
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
Oh my God, no one paid  - Attention! -
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
Overnight my hair turned gray  - Oh oh oh! -

Chorus:
Em                            D                     G
In the end it boils down to credibility
Em                            D                          C
I had none, so I will die with the secrets of the sea

Outro:
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  
G            C  - Cadd9 -  Em     D  

G            C  - Cadd9 -  G      D  
- Submarine! Can't find me! Submarine! -

Submarine...
- Submarine! -

    -7 is super easy for us beginners!?

  2. Great. I found that if you swap out the Cadd9 for a Gsus4 (GCEA:0035, sorry for poor format) it sounds good on the uke

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.
