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


Em            B7     Em           B7
Like a river flows, surely to the sea

    One thing that I noticed while playing around with the chords is that if you play a G starting on the second fret on the left side, it kinda sounds like B7 (for my fellow uke cheaters :)) Also, if you want to, you can avoid playing Em by playing C. Hope this helped

  2. Hamilton is Life

    Lucky for you, you can actually sing!
    I sound like a cat drowning and giving birth at the same time

  3. I find a good replacement for B7 is Bbm, Em7 is Em, and Dm7 is D

  4. Idontknowhowbuttylerfoundme

    If you can’t play Dm7, Dm works just as well. That’s what I did in the beginning. This was my first song I ever played on the uke. For B7, that just takes a lot of practice. If this is your first tiime ever playing, you play it by baring the chord, meaning 1 finger layed down on all strings. It makes your hand cramp at first but you’ll get used to it. the first time you play it will buzz mostlikely, that just means you aren’t pressing hard enough. Keep at it, you’ll get there eventually. It took me 3 hours to get it right the first time, it just takes patience. Once you can bar a chord you can do anything. I suggest practicing by only holding 2 strings down, then 3, then 4. I hope this helps!

    I’ve only been playing my ukulele since Christmas and I just learned this today. I can actually sing and play with this song. I love it.

  7. Weeeeell, im a beginner and the chord most hard is Dm7, B7 is so easy :0

    (I speak spanish, sorry)

    IM NOT YOUR FRIEND ;)

    You guys, this is not a song for beginners. This was like the third song I learned on ukulele, and still 1 year later it’s still hard. No hate but ifYOU CANT PLAY THE B7 CHORD DONT PLAY THE SONG. Tyler is a mastermind and the boy the best of the best can match his amazing ness. Love y’all though❤️

    • Weeeeell, im a beginner and the chord most hard is Dm7, B7 is so easy :0

      (I speak spanish, sorry)

      • Dm7 is not the worst. It may be hard to shift to in this song, but it is easier than most barre chords, including B7. Sorry sister.

      • Alternate B7 fingering: same hand shape as Em, just move all fingers up 1 string. It leaves the A string open instead of the G string, puts the 7th on the open A string, and it’s the exact same voicing as the barre chord.

    • oh haha I know an easier way to play B7 actually, you just need to put your middle finger flat on the second row (cover all) and your ring finger in the third-row third string (counting from the right). It might sound weird at first but just keep trying, and you also need to press on the strings really hard in order to get the sound right!! Hope it works for you!

    • lol Tyler didn’t write this song??

    • lemons0cks

      i think anyone can play this song if they want to. this is the first song i learned to play on my ukulele when i got it for christmas and it really wasn’t hard to play, i don’t think you should say that “this is not a song for beginners” or that if “you can’t play the B7 chord you shouldn’t play it.”

    • you know, it’s kinda an opinion with some chords. Like I know I can play Bm chord very easily as a beginner/ intermediate player, but some others can’t. You don’t know how hard a chord is for someone to play. So it may be very easy for them, but not easy for some others. It doesn’t matter the chord “level”. You shouldn’t be commenting on how easy it is for someone else to play a chord. This isn’t meant to be rude or hateful, just wanted to speak my opinion. :)

    • Idk I got my uke a few days ago and I found this really easy to learn, after enough practice I now have almost no issue with transitioning to B7. Idk wym when you say it’s not for beginners, anyone can start with anything as long as they have determination.

  10. I personally use a normal g chord over the g7 but it sounds pretty either way so like who can complain?

  11. DDUUDU is the strumming pattern i used

  12. What is the strum pattern?

    • MichaelInTheBathroom

      I use the Island Strum (DDU UDU) for this song, but Tyler uses D UDUD… I think. Hope this helps… it probably won’t but whatever lol.

  13. Figgy Wiggy Woo

    This song is very close to my heart, and it was easy for me to learn it thanks to this tab!

  14. I liked it better using the strumming pattern D D U U D U better than single strums. It adds more rhythm. I’ve been playing ukelele for a little bit over a year, and I’m not the best, but I play for fun. Good luck guys❤️❤️

  15. Supernatural1967

    All I can think of when I hear or play this song is Twist and Shout. The Supernatural fandom knows what I’m talking about.

  16. You can replace all of the E chords and A chords by just playing C, G, C, F, C, G, at the beginning.
