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,
My [E7]baby just wrote me a [Am]letter.

[Am]I don't care how much money I [F]gotta spend,
[Am7/C]Got to get back to my [D7]baby again
[Am]Lonely days are gone, [F]I'm a-goin' home,
My [E7]baby just wrote me a [Am]letter.

CHORUS
Well she [C]wrote me a [G]letter
Said she [F]couldn't [C]live with[G]out me no more.[G]
[C]Listen mister [G]can't you see I [f]got to get [C]back
To my [G]baby once more. [E7]Anyway....

[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,
My [E7]baby just wrote me a [Am]letter.

REPEAT CHORUS

[Am]Give me a ticket for an [F]aeroplane,

[Am]Lonely days are gone, [F]I'm a-goin' home,
My [E7]baby just wrote me a [Am]letter.
My [E7]baby just wrote me a [Am]letter.
