Evil Ways - Santana - Ukulele Chords

This is a song that has started to appear in my set list, Evil Ways by Santana


It's pretty straightforward, in that there are only two chords in most of the progression. The trick though is to get the strumming in a driving groove. There is a video at the end to assist. On the change to the D7 chord, you kind of want to hammer that with a repeated strum, then cut the playing dead during the start of the next line.

And, if you find that Gm7 a little tricky, a standard Gm will work too.

Oh, and cowbell, percussion shakers and Hammond organ are compulsory!



Intro: [Gm7] [C7] [Gm7] [C7]

[Gm7]You've got to [C7] change your evil [Gm7] ways [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaby [C7]
[Gm7] Before [C7] I stop [Gm7] loving [C7] you
You've got to [Gm7] change [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaaby [C7]
And [Gm7] every [C7] word that I [Gm7] say is [C7] true

You got me [Gm7] running and [C7] hiding [Gm7] all over [C7] town
You got me [Gm7] sneaking and [C7] peeping and [Gm7] running you [C7] down
This can't go [D7] onnnnn.....
[NC] Lord knows you got to [Gm7] change [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaby [C7]
[Gm7] baaaby [C7]

When I come [Gm7] home [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaaby [C7]
[Gm7] My  house is [C7] dark and my [Gm7] pots are [C7] cold
You hang a[Gm7]round [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaby [C7]
With [Gm7] Jean and [C7] Joan and [Gm7] who knows [C7] who

I'm getting [Gm7] tired of [C7] waiting and [Gm7] fooling a[C7]round
I'll find [Gm7] somebody who won't [C7] make me [Gm7] feel like a [C7] clown
This can't go [D7] onnnn.....
[NC] Lord knows you got to [Gm7] change [C7]

[Gm7] [C7]
[Gm7] [C7] (repeat - space for lead keyboard solo)

When I come [Gm7] home [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaby [C7]
My [Gm7] house is [C7] dark and my [Gm7] pots are [C7] cold
You hang a[Gm7]round [C7]
[Gm7] baaaaby [C7]
With [Gm7] Jean and [C7] Joan and [Gm7] who knows [C7] who

I'm getting [Gm7] tired of [C7] waiting and [Gm7] fooling a[C7]round
I'll find [Gm7] somebody who won't [C7] make me [Gm7] feel like a [C7] clown
This can't go [D7] onnnn....

[NC]Yeah Yeah Yeah! [Gm7]

(Rock out to the end with [Gm7] [C7]! )
