Linger - The Cranberries - Ukulele Chords

Pretty song from quite a few years ago. Very straightforward on the ukulele too. Linger by The Cranberries.


As it is so basic, experiment with your strumming pattern. Hammering on the E string one fret down on the D chord helps add a bit of shape too. The strings in the intro are based around the chord sequence which is the same all the way through. As usual - video at the end to play along to.


If [D] you, if you could return, don't let it [A]burn, don't let it fade.
I'm sure I'm not being [C] rude, but it's just your attitude, 
It's tearing me a [G] part, It's ruining everything.

And I [D] swore, I swore I would be true, and honey, so did [A] you.
So why were you holding her [C] hand? Is that the way we stand?
Were you lying all the [G] time? Was it just a game to you?

But I'm in so [D] deep.
You know I'm such a [A] fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your [C] finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it [G] linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it [D] linger?

Oh, I [A] thought the world of you.
I thought [C] nothing could go wrong,
But I was [G] wrong. I was wrong.

If [D] you, if you could get by, trying not to [A] lie,
Things wouldn't be so con [C] fused and I wouldn't feel so used,
But you always really [G] knew, I just wanna be with you.

But I'm in so [D] deep.
You know I'm such a [A] fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your [C] finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it [G] linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it [D] linger?

Instrumental D, A, C, G

And I'm in so [D] deep.
You know I'm such a [A] fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your [C] finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it [G] linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
Do you have to let it [D] linger?

You know I'm such a [A] fool for you.
You got me wrapped around your [C] finger, ah, ha, ha.
Do you have to let it [G] linger?
Do you have to, do you have to,
 Do you have to let it [D] linger?

Repeat D, A, C, G to end
