Orange Blossom Special - Ukulele Chords

Another ukulele tune from the N'Ukes set list, and another that sates my desire for a bit of Johnny Cash...


Orange Blossom Special. Dead easy to play, just get a driving railroad rhythm going. Between each verse is an instrumental run of the verse chords but played with quicker chord changes. On the original (see video - which is in a different key to this) these bits are filled with horns, harmonica etc.



[C]Look a-yonder comin'
Comin' down that railroad track [C7]
[F]Hey, look a-yonder comin'
Comin' down that railroad track
It's the [G]Orange Blossom Special
Bringin' my baby [C]back

C F G7 C F G7 C

[C]Well, I'm going down to Florida
And get some sand in my shoes[C7]
Or [F]maybe California
And get some sand in my [C]shoes
I'll ride that [G]Orange Blossom Special
And lose these New York [C]blues

C F G7 C F G7 C

[C]Hey talk about a-ramblin'
She's the fastest train on the line[C7]
[F]Talk about a-travellin'
She's the fastest train on the line
It's that [G]Orange Blossom Special
Rollin' down the seaboard [C]line

C F G7 C F G7 C
