Love this one.


Works brilliantly on a ukulele - and I mean, come on - it even has a kazoo solo!!

When I'm Dead And Gone by McGuinness Flint


Intro - [D] [G]

[D] Oh I love you baby, I [G] love you night and day
[D] When I leave you baby, don't [G] cry the night away
[D] When I die don't you write no [G] words upon my tomb
[D] I don't believe I want to leave no [G] epitaph of doom

CHORUS
[D] Oh, oh [A] oh, [Bm] when I'm dead and [G] gone
I want to [D] leave some happy [A] woman living [D] on [G] [A]
[D] Oh, oh [A] oh, [Bm] when I'm dead and [G] gone
Don't [D] want nobody to [A] mourn beside my [G] grave [D]

[D] Oh mama Linda, she's [G] out to get my hide
[D] She's got a shotgun and her [G] daughter by her side
[D] Hey there ladies, [G] Johnson's free
[D] Who's got the love, who's got enough to [G] keep a man like me?


CHORUS
[D] Oh, oh [A] oh, [Bm] when I'm dead and [G] gone
I want to [D] leave some happy [A] woman living [D] on [G] [A]
[D] Oh, oh [A] oh, [Bm] when I'm dead and [G] gone
Don't [D] want nobody to [A] mourn beside my [G] grave [D]

Instrumental kazoo verse - strum chords to first verse [D] [G]

CHORUS

[D] Oh, oh [A] oh, [Bm] when I'm dead and [G] gone
Don't [D] want nobody to [A] mourn beside my [D] grave [G] [A]
[D] Oh, oh [A] oh, [Bm] when I'm dead and [G] gone
Don't [D] want nobody to [A] mourn beside my [G] grave [D]


Fade out with [D]/// [G] [A] singing Oooh la la la Oooh la la la's
