The Letter - Box Tops - Ukulele Chords

A great tune this which one or two of the N'Ukes have played through at our jam sessions once or twice. I think it works rather well on ukulele.



The odd chord in this is the Am7/C - there are a few fudges to play that on the uke, and actually and Am7 will work also though the fingering is a bit of a bind( 2433). You can play a C chord as 5430 and get a similar chord sound, or also an Am/C chord which is 2003.

Enjoy!


The Letter - The Box Tops


[Am]Give me a ticket for an [F]aeroplane,
[Am7/C]Ain't got time to take the [D7]fast train
[Am]Lonely days are gone, [F]I'm a-goin' home,
