Bad Moon Rising - Ukulele Chords

Another uke staple from the N'Ukes songbook and one I cannot believe I haven't put on Got A Ukulele already. Bad Moon Rising by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

We play this quite quick, and in a slightly different key than the original, but it's easy to transpose to suit. This works well for our voices and a bit of harmony in verses. I've included a soundclip at the end to help you with our pattern.
