  1. This song Rocks!!!!

  2. Gowertonrules

    I love this site for ukealayle music, but it is also a good site for lyrics

  3. 4 steps down is the eaisest.

  4. -2 Is great!

  5. Gowertonrules

    I love playing it on -2 it’s really easy and it sounds right!!!

  6. I play it C G Am F, but it may not sound as good

  7. If you transpose it to -2 it’s much easier.

  8. Ch@nt363

    I Love this song thx 4 posting it it sounds gr8 on the ukulele
    1 of my favourites!!!!

    That thing you are calling Dbm doesn’t exist in the song’s key of E. It’s a C#m. In keys with sharp pitches (D major has F#) all the alterations from natural pitch are upward (sharpened). In keys with flat pitches (F has Bb) all the alterations are downward (flattened). This helps the ear keep track of how far from the home note any pitch is. One can count then by scale steps instead of half steps.

    • +1 and then some… I’ve seen a number of songs with the chords listed like this – instead of what the chord is per the key of the song. Very odd – not sure why – likely confusing to those just getting started.

    • Dude it’s the enharmonic. We get it. It really doesn’t matter unless it is written on a score as you can’t have two of the same note name in a scale. But seriously. Pick other fights

  10. hi guys i find that transposing it 2 half steps up makes it easy but it still sounds good!!

  11. In not quote sure what to play, I’ve not really played chords before so what rythym

  12. This is a really hard song to play! :(

  13. The Dbm is way easier to play if you bar the fourth fret with your first finger and put your third finger on the g(first) string, 6th fret. Also it’s tough to get used to, but E is easier if you put your first finger on the A (fourth) string, second fret and then bar the G,C, and E strings with your third finger on the fourth fret.

    • Yessss I was about to comment the same thing!!!

    • jay hargo

      To be honest, for me, it’s far easier to put my first finger on the second fret of the A (first) string; then I use my second finger to barre the fourth fret of the G (fourth) and C (third) string, and then I place my third finger on the fourth fret of the E (second) string. It’s tough to get the C string to sound clear at first, but after a while you become used to bringing your thumb down to add pressure, so all the strings ring clearly.

      I’m talking about the E chord, by the way.

    @ Jamie.. Go to transposer and press -4… It changes to the chords F G Am C

  15. THIS SITE IS AWESOME! And that I can change it to fit my voice. <3

  16. I like to transpose this 3 halfsteps UP!

  17. the best way to play is barring , cuz u can just slide up and down :)

  18. Whoops, I mean chords ;)

  19. Hi! Would there be any easier tabs for this? Thanks (:

    • Sure! up top where they introduce the chords you should see numbers like; -6 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6. Each one changes the key of the song which will make it sound a little bit different but more the less still the song. The only thing is you will also have to change the key you’re singing in (if you or someone else is) I hope this helps!

    • BreadandJam

      -2 is my personal favorite owo

    • I know you wrote this a while ago but there are very easy alternative chords for this its c,g,am,f hope this helps!

    • You can transpose it to -4 and that is a lot easier! Hope it is for you!

      • Easier way – same key – but tune your top string up a tone (tune it the same as your bottom string) – then adjust the chords accordingly. I’m probably not allowed to post a link to an video instruction that points this out. Apparently it’s how Jimmy tunes his uke/plays this song live. Fully get it as it makes the chord progressions very smooth.

    • yeah replace E with C and B with G and Dam with Am and a with F

      btw I know this comment is like years and years old

      • Ahhh this helped me so much! The chord changes are way easier! I played this for my music class and everyone loved it! Thanks :)

    • If you change the key to -4, then the song becomes way easier to play. Hope that helped ?

    • I don’t really understand this

    • Jamie, -4 in the transposer thingie is really nice.

    • itgodhimself

      no

    I simply could not depart your site prior to telling that I really loved it! I’m gonna be back regularly to check on new tabs. Thank you!
