Israelites Ukulele Chords

I love this Desmond Dekker track, and it's really easy to play on ukulele. Just play the opening couple of lines very slow, then get into a chunky reggae rhythm with the rest!



[A] Get up in the morning slaving for bread sir
So that every [A7] mouth can be fed [D]
Poooor [E7]
Me [A] Israelites [F] [G]

[A] Get up in the morning slaving for bread sir
So that every [A7] mouth can be fed [D]
Poooor [E7]
Me[A] Israelites [C] [D]

[A] My wife and my kids they pack up and a leave me
Darling she said I was [A7] yours to receive [D]
Poooor [E7]
Me[A] Israelites [C]

[A] Shirt dem a-tear up trousers are go
I don't want to end up like [A7] Bonnie and Clyde [D]
Pooooor [E7]
Me [A] Israelites [F] [G]

[A] After a storm there must be a calm
[A] Catch me in your palm you [A7] sound your alarm [D]
Poooor [E7]
Me [A] Israelites [F] [G]

Middle instrum[A] [F] [G] [A] [D] [A] [F] [G] [A] [E7]

Repeat verses through again and end with

 [D] Poor [E7]
Me [A] Israelites
[D] Poor [E7]
Me [A] Israelites

Repeat those lines to end
