Your sweet moonbeam   the smell of you in every single dream I dream
                   C

   C
To-night The way you can't cut a rug
G                              Am
Watching you's the only drug I need
         
You're so gangster I'm so thug
           F                            C
You're the only one I'm dreaming of you see
                          G
I can be myself now final-ly
                                Am
In fact there's nothing I can't be
                            F       G
I want the world to see you be with   me

Chorus:

  1. a great strumming pattern is DDU UDU UDU UDU

  2. E=C
    B=G
    Dbm=Am
    A=F
    when i first got my ukulele a few months ago, c, g, am, and f were the first chords i learned and i started just goofin around with them and i realized that it sounded like this song. if you’re a beginner, like i am, i find it a lot easier to substitute those chords out. personally, i think it still sounds pretty good.

  3. Okay so the chorus really pisses me off but the trick is like this in case anyone is having trouble:

    “Hey soul sister ——-(d-du-udu)x2
    ain’t that mister ——-(d-du-udu)x1
    mister ———————(ddu)x1
    on the ———————(d-du)x1
    radio stereo the ——(d-du-udu)x2
    way you move ain’t -(d-du-udu)x1
    fair you ——————-(d-du)x1
    know” ———————(d-du)x1

    So basically it is (d-du-udu) twice on the first chord (A) then the next chord (B) its the same thing but once (d-du-udu) then the next chord (E) is a fast (d-du) then next (B) is also the same as the last (d-du) then its a loop back to (d-du-udu) twice again

    I hope this helps you and other people but if you don’t get something just ask me!!

  4. the chord changes in the chorus did not seem right.

  5. Somtochukwu Unigwe

    The strumming pattern is Down DOWN Up Down Up DOWN Up
    Emphasis on the capitalised downs.

  7. okay so i’ve got the verses down but i can’t figure out a good strum pattern for the chorus. is there a trick to it? or am i just crazy?
