Little Lion Man - Mumford and Sons - Ukulele Chords

Not personally much of a fan of Mumford and Sons, but this song does work very well on the ukulele. Little Lion Man.


It's pretty straightforward, but to get it right is all about the fast driving rhythm. See the video at the end of the words for something to play along to. I also see this a lot in Am, but it's in Dm. Works great with a low G and some hammering on and off the strings on the Dm to F change throughout. The chorus line is played with single sustaining strums.



INTRO [Dm] [F] x4

[Dm] Weep for yourself my man
You'll never be what is in your [F] heart
[Dm] Weep little lion man
You're not as brave as you were at the [F] start

[C] Rate yourself and rape yourself
[Bb] take all the courage you have [F] left
[C] Wasted on the fixing all the
[Bb] problems that you made in your own [F] head

CHORUS

But it was [Dm] not your [Bb] fault but [F] mine
And it was [Dm] your heart [Bb] on the [F] line
I really [Dm] fucked it [Bb] up this [F] time
Didn't I my [C] dear?

[Dm] [F] x2

[Dm] Tremble for yourself my man
You know that you have seen this all [F] before
[Dm] Tremble little lion man
You'll never settle any of your [F] scores

[C] Your grace is wasted in your face
your [Bb] boldness stands alone among the [F] wreck
[C] Learn from your mother else
[Bb] spend the days biting your own [F] neck


But it was [Dm] not your [Bb] fault but [F] mine
And it was [Dm] your heart [Bb] on the [F] line
I really [Dm] fucked it [Bb] up this [F] time
Didn't I my [C] dear?
Didn't I my [F] dear..

[Dm] [F]
[Dm] [F]

[C]/// [F]/// [Bb]/// [Bb]///
[C]/// [F]/// [Bb]/// [Bb]///
[C] Ahhh [F] Ahhh [Bb] ahhh (repeat to suit song)


But it was [Dm] not your [Bb] fault but [F] mine
And it was [Dm] your heart [Bb] on the [F] line
I really [Dm] fucked it [Bb] up this [F] time
Didn't I my [C] dear?
Didn't I my [F] dear..

Repeat chorus with no chords.

So I had trouble with the Bb chord in this song, it didn't sound right to me and for some reason my fingers kept going to G as the replacement. It sounds fine with a G in place of the B to me though. So I think I'll keep it that way

Its definitely Bb, but if the G works for you then thats cool
