Boys Don't Cry - Ukulele Chords - The Cure

Been noodling with this one on ukulele today - Boys Don't Cry by The Cure.


Now, when you glance down at the chords you may think, woah! hang on - this aint a beginners song! But actually its a pretty simple progression that doesn't require a lot of finger movement.

The C#m in this is played by sliding the shape for the Bm up to the fourth fret (to 6444), and then on to the Dmaj just slide up again to the fifth fret and add an extra note on the C string so its 7655. The progression is really just a case of going up the neck then back down again quickly. Video at the end to assist and a Soundcloud too.

INTRO

A Bm C#m Dmaj     Dmaj C#m Bm A (x2)

[A] I would say I'm [Bm] sorry if I [C#m] thought that is would [Dmaj] change your mind
[A] But I know that [Bm] this time I have [C#m] said to much been [Dmaj] too unkind

[A] I tried to [Bm] laugh about it
[A] cover it all up with [Bm] lies
[A] I tried to [Bm] laugh about it
[A] hiding the tears in my [Bm] eyes

Cos [A] boys don't cry [Bm] [C#m] [Dmaj]  [Dmaj] [C#m] [Bm] [A]
[A] Boys [Bm] don't [C#m] cry [Dmaj]  [Dmaj] [C#m] [Bm] [A]


[A] I would break down [Bm] at your feet and [C#m] beg forgiveness [Dmaj] plead with you
[A] but I know that [Bm] it's too late and [C#m] now there's nothing [Dmaj] I can do


[A] I tried to [Bm] laugh about it
[A] cover it all up with [Bm] lies
[A] I tried to [Bm] laugh about it
[A] hiding the tears in my [Bm] eyes

Cos [A] boys don't cry [Bm] [C#m] [Dmaj]  [Dmaj] [C#m] [Bm] [A]
[A] Boys [Bm] don't [C#m] cry [Dmaj]  [Dmaj] [C#m] [Bm] [A]


[A] I would tell you [Bm] that I loved you [C#m] If I thought that [Dmaj] you would stay
[A] but I know that [Bm] it's no use and [C#m] you've already [Dmaj] gone away

(BRIDGE)

[E] misjudged your [F#m] limits
[E] pushed you to [F#m] far
[E] took you for [F#m] granted
[D] thought that you needed me [E] more more more now

[A] I would do most [Bm] anything to [C#m] get you back by my [Dmaj] side
[A] But I just [Bm] keep on laughing [C#m] hiding the tears in my [Dmaj] eyes

Cos [A] boys don't cry [Bm] [C#m] [Dmaj]  [Dmaj] [C#m] [Bm] [A]
[A] Boys [Bm] don't [C#m] cry [Dmaj]  [Dmaj] [C#m] [Bm] [A]

REPEAT TO END
