Hi, I'm new to the group so be gentle!

My daughter(6) absolutely loves Arlo's version of Ukulele Lady. I have searched high and low for the chords that Arlo used, and have found nothing. I have found several sites with the original chords, and even found the song in a ukulele book. but it doesn't sound right! I want Arlo's Chords!!! If anyone could help (arlo, are you listening?) I would really apreciate it. I'll be playing this tune on the Mandolin. I think it will really bring a smile to her face next time I see her! Thanks in advance

Did you hit this site:
http://www.theuke.com/forum_viewtopic.php?7.69

has a couple chord variations and if they don't work you could post there maybe someone in the Uke world might be able to help.

*Ukulele Lady

F C7 F
I saw the splendor of the moonlight on Honolulu Bay
F C7 F
There's something tender in the moonlight on Honolulu Bay
Dm Am
And all the beaches are filled with peaches who bring their ukes along
F G7 C7
And in the glimmer of the moonlight they love to sing this song


F Am Dm C7 F Am Dm
If you like Ukulele Lady, Ukulele Lady like a'you
Gm C7 Gm C7 Gm C7 F
If you like to linger where it's shady, Ukulele Lady linger too
F Am Dm C7 F Am Dm
If you kiss Ukulele Lady, while you promise ever to be true
Gm C7 Gm C7 Gm C7 F
And she sees another Ukulele Lady foolin' 'round with you


Bb
Maybe she'll sigh (an awful lot)
F
Maybe she'll cry (and maybe not)
G7
Maybe she'll find somebody else
C C7
By and by

F Am Dm C7 F Am Dm
To sing to when it's cool and shady, where the tricky wicky wacky woo
Gm C7 Gm C7 Gm C7 F
If you like Ukulele Lady, Ukulele Lady like a'you


F C7 F
She used to sing to me by moonlight, on Honolulu Bay
F C7 F
Fond memories cling to me by moonlight, although I'm far away
Dm Am
Some day I'm going, where eyes are glowing, and lips are made to kiss
F G7 C7
To see somebody in the moonlight, and hear the song I miss

* guitar chords

I think Arlo plays it in the key of E. Guitarwise it's good to use a capo on the fourth fret. There's some ascending fingerpicking :roll: in the "If you like to linger where it's shady" bit. But I can't transcribe tablature here. I just wrote the "walking" bassline. :?
There's another problem. The chords jump to the beginning of the line like sheep when I preview what I wrote. :( :x They don't stay on top of the correct words. Silly chords.
Have fun!

To get tabs to stay in place use the Code button on top to get a fixed font, leave my-spaces-alone place to type.
