(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love And Understanding - Ukulele Chords

One of my favourite ever songs this one - and pretty straightforward on the ukulele. Written by Nick Lowe and performed by Brinsley Schwarz.


The trick on this is to get that [G] [D] [C] pattern rocking as it appears throughout. Hold on the G, then move from the D to C much quicker. There is a video at the end you can play along with in the same key.

(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace Love And Understanding - Ukulele Chords

[G] [D] [C] x 4

As I [G] walk [D] [C] this wicked [G] world [D] [C]
Searchin' for [Em] light in the [A] darkness of insane [D] ity, oh [C] yeah
I ask my [G] self [D] [C] is all hope [G] lost? [D] [C]
Is there only [Em] pain and [A] hatred, a mis [D]ery, oh [C] yeah

'Cause each [G] time I feel like [D] this inside, there's [G7] one thing I wanna [C] know

Oh... [G] What's so funny 'bout [D] peace love and under [Em] standing [A] - Ahhhhhh
[G]What's so funny 'bout [D] peace love and under [Em] standing? [D] [D] [D] [D] [D] [D]

[G] [D] [C] x4

And as I walk [G] on [D] [C], through troubled [G] times [D] [C]
My spirit gets [Em] so down [A] hearted, some [D] times, some [C] times
So where are the [G] strong? [D] [C] And who are the [G] trusted? [D] [C]
And where is the [Em] Har...[A]...mo[D]ny, sweet harm [C] ony?

'Cause each [G] time I feel it [D] slipping away, it [G7] just makes me wanna [C] cry

Oh... [G] What's so funny 'bout [D] peace love and under [Em] standing [A] - Ahhhhhh
[G]What's so funny 'bout a [D] little bit of peace and love yeah yeah [Em] yeah.. [D] [D] [D] [D] [D] [D]

[G] [D] [C] We must have peace...
[G] [D] [C] More peace than love...
[G] [D] [C] Just for the children...
[G] [D] [C] Of the new generation...

[G] [D] [C] x2
[Em] [A] [D] [C]  (LEAD SOLO)


So where are the [G] strong? [D] [C] And who are the [G] trusted? [D] [C]
And where is the [Em] Har...[A]...mo[D]ny, sweet harm [C] ony?

'Cause each [G] time I feel it [D] slipping away, it [G7] just makes me wanna [C] cry

  1. I find a G-5sus4add9 (drop the D & B notes in the G chord to open C and A) (thanks "NutChords") sounds good to replace the D to C
    bit... Drop them, hammer them on and repeat.

    I hope this makes sense, it's easier than it is to type out!

  2. Thanks so much for this chord sheet! This is one of my all time favorite songs, and I'm learning to rock out on it. Once I got the basic chords and rhythm I started playing a D-du-uDD with the capital Ds (downstrokes) on the chord changes in the GDC pattern .

  3. In my opinion - one of the greatest songs ever written!
