C    Em  Am       F     C    G
Wise men say only fools rush in
    F  G     Am   F         C    G7   C
But I can't help falling in love with you
C     Em   Am            F  C  G
Shall  I  stay? Would it be a sin  
   F  G     Am   F          C    G7   C
If I can't help falling in love with you


Em            B7     Em           B7
Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Em             B7     Em7         A7               Dm7  G7
Darling, so it goes, some things      are meant to be
C    Em  Am            F     C     G
Take my hand, take my whole life, too
      F   G    Am   F          C    G7   C
Cause I can't help falling in love with you

  1. The Pentatonix and Elvis versions are in different keys than this one. If you want to sing the Elvis version, transpose 1+! Love all of the versions, though. No hate! :)

  2. Does anyone know where I can get the sheet music for this? Like the ones with the treble clef because I need it for an exam

  3. OwO,what'sthis?

    I’m only just starting to play ukulele and this song is pretty easy so it’s really good for me! The only thing I’m struggling with at the minute is changing notes and the B7 chord.

  4. I love this song so much, but can any other chords just replace the harder chords to make it easier. But since, I LOVED PLAYING IT.

    I use a basic island pattern and switch between a single strum for every non chorus

  6. There is a strumming pattern that I use and it is very useful. The time signature can be three fourths so use your thumb to pluck the C string then after on beats 2 and 3 pluck the E and A string at the same time with your second and third finger. So your left hand is playing the chords while your right-hand does that strumming pattern. So if a chord has a note on the top G string, it doesn’t have to be played. It also sounds good with any three-fourths time signature lullaby.

  7. I do a down strum and then pluck the middle two strings for each chord, but the last chord for every verse I do a down strum and pluck the middle two strings as well as the one to the right. It gives it a light feel for me.

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.
