Should I Stay Or Should I Go - The Clash - Ukulele Chords

Considering the fact that Joe Strummer was a ukulele player, this one seemed appropriate. Should I Stay Or Should I Go by The Clash.


Now,  my readers will know that I am not a big fan of prescriptive strumming patterns, but on this song it's kind of important. For the verses, the strums follow the vocal line and each consist of eight down strums, played very clearly. I have listed the chords after each line. (In the second part of the song, where the spanish lyrics come in, they are sung over the strums).

The Chorus uses the same chord patterns, but in more of a swingy style. See video at the end for something to play along with.

( D D D  G G G G  D ) x 2

Darling you got to let me know ( D D D G G G G D )
