Stop The Cavalry - Jona Lewie - Ukulele Chords

Dead easy this one and another Christmas song that I like - hard to go wrong with this on the ukulele!

Video at the end to play along with - the chords are simple enough, but it's about getting the right marching rhythm for the song.

Stop The Cavalry - Jona Lewie


[A] Hey Mister Churchill [E7] comes over here
[A] To say we're doing [E7] splendidly,
[A] But it's very cold [E7] out here in the snow
[A] Marching to and from the [E7] enemy.
[A] Oh I say it's tough, [E7] I have had enough
[A] Can you stop the [E7] cavalry?

[A] Dadadadada,[E7] dadadadada,
[A] dadadadada,[E7] dadadaaa
[A] Dadadadada,[E7] dadadadada
[A] Da da da da [E7] daa da [A] daaa

[A] I have had to fight [E7] almost every night
[A] Down throughout the [E7] centuries,
[A] That is when I say [E7] oh yes, yet again,
[A] Can you stop the [E7] cavalry? [A]

[E7] Mary proudly [A] waits at home
[E7] In the nuclear [A] fallout zone
[E7] Wish I could be [A] dancing now,
[E7] In the arms of the [A] girl I love.

[E7] Du bu du bu dum dum, du bu du bu dum
Dubu[A] dumdumdubudumdubudubudum
[E7] Du bu du bu dum dum, du bu du bu dum
Dubu[A] dumdumdubudumdubudubudum
[G] Wish I was at home for [D] Christmas...
[A][D][A][D][A][D][A]

[E7] Wish I could be [A] dancing now,
[E7] In the arms of the [A] girl I love.
[E7] Mary proudly [A] waits at home
[E7] She‟s been waiting [A] two years long

[E7] Du bu du bu dum dum, du bu du bu dum
Dubu[A] dumdumdubudumdubudubudum
[E7] Du bu du bu dum dum, du bu du bu dum
Dubu[A] dumdumdubudumdubudubudum
[G] Wish I was at home for [D] Christmas...
[A][D][A][D] [E7] [A]

as a beginner i would find it very helpful if you were able to suggest a strum pattern to the songs
its hard enough trying to learn as it is by the way love the site

Sorry, I don't believe strum patterns are good for beginners. Better to concentrate on basic beat and go from there. The song wasn't written for ukulele so any pattern is only an interpretation anyway.
