Blue Suede Shoes - Ukulele Chords

Another easy song for ukulele that most people already know the tune to very well. It's a fairly standard rock and roll blues pattern in the key of C. Learn some blues patterns like this and you have the essence of 90% of popular music!



BLUE SUEDE SHOES


1.Well, it's [C]one for the money, two for the show,
Three to get ready, now [C7]go cat go!

CHORUS

But [F7]don't you step on my blue suede [C]shoes.
You can [G7]do anything, but lay [F7]off of my blue suede [C]shoes. [G7]


2. Well, you can [C]knock me down, step in my face
Slander my name all over the place
Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh, honey, [C7]lay off of my shoes...

REPEAT CHORUS


3. Well, you can [C]burn my house, steal my car,
Drink my liquor from my old fruit jar
Do anything that you want to do
But uh-uh, honey, [C7]lay off of my shoes.

REPEAT CHORUS

[C]Blue, blue, blue suede shoes, blue, blue, [C7]blue suede shoes
[F7]Blue, blue, blue suede shoes, [C]blue, blue, blue suede shoes
Well you can [G7]do anything, but lay [F7]off of my blue suede [C]shoes. [F7]  [C]

Great blog! Any ukelele fans ever listen to Barton Hartshorn? He has a very similar sound. Worth checking out!
