Ukulele Chords - One Man Guy - Loudon Wainwright III

A great song for those learning how to play the ukulele and one of my all time favourite singer songwriters, Loudon Wainwright III. In fact I named this blog after the opening line of one of his songs - the Ukulele Song (hmmm, must get those chords on here soon). 


Anyway, this is a song of his I really like. Nice played soft on the uke or gently fingerpicked. As usual, YT video at the end to help you play along. I've simplified it very very slightly too. There is a B chord in the transition to the end of each chorus, but, you know, this is a beginners blog.... ;-)


ONE MAN GUY

[G] People will know when they see this show, the [C] kind of a [D] guy I [G]
They'll recognise just want I stand for and [C] what I just can't [D] stand
[C] They'll perceive what [D] I believe in and [C]what I know is [D] true
And they'll [G] recognise I'm a one man guy, always [C] was, through and [D] through

Cos I'm a [G] one man guy in the [C] morning
[G] same in the after [C] noon
[G] one man guy when the [C] sun goes down
I'll [G] whistle me a one man [C] tune
[G] One man guy a [C] one man guy
[G] Only kinda guy to [C] be
[Am] A one man guy, I'm a [C] one man guy, and a
[D] One maaaaaaan guy is [G] me [C]

I'm a one man [G] [C] guy [C]


[G] People meditate, hey that's just great, [C] trying to find the [D] inner [G] you
And people depend on family and friends, [C] and other folks to pull them [D] through
[C] I dont know why I'm a [D] one man guy and [C] why this is a one man [D] show
But these [G] three cubic feet of bone and blood and [C] meat are what I love and [D] know


Cos I'm a [G] one man guy in the [C] morning
[G] same in the after [C] noon
[G] one man guy when the [C] sun goes down
I'll [G] whistle me a one man [C] tune
[G] One man guy a [C] one man guy
[G] Only kinda guy to [C] be
[Am] A one man guy, I'm a [C] one man guy, and a
[D] One maaaaaaan guy is [G] me [C]

I'm a one man [G] [C] guy [C]

I'm [G] Gonna bathe and shave and dress myself and eat [C] solo [D] every [G] night
Unplug the phone and sleep alone, [C] stay way out of [D] sight
[C] Sure it's kind of [D] lonely, [C] yeah it's sort of [D] sick
Being [G] your own one and only is a [C] selfish dirty [D] trick


Cos I'm a [G] one man guy in the [C] morning
[G] same in the after [C] noon
[G] one man guy when the [C] sun goes down
I'll [G] whistle me a one man [C] tune
[G] One man guy a [C] one man guy
[G] Only kinda guy to [C] be
[Am] A one man guy, I'm a [C] one man guy, and a
[D] One maaaaaaan guy is [G] me [C]

I'm a one man [G] [C] guy [C]
