Sweet Child Of Mine - Ukulele Chords

This is a nice one, and falls in that category of 'songs you don't expect a ukulele player to cover'.

We have introduced this to our set, but in a different style - inspired by Thea Gilmore's version (video at the end of the chords of Thea and Nigel Stonier performing it. They both live in Nantwich where we are so double bonus!)

If you want to be adventurous, try picking the melody of the song, but as a beginners blog, this is just the chords!


INTRO (Picked) A A Em Em D D A A (x2)

[A] She's got a smile that seems to me re[G] minds me of childhood memories
Where [D] everything was as fresh as the bright blue [A] sky

[A] Now and then when I see her face it [G] takes me away to that special place
And If I [D] stare too long, I'd probably break down and [A] cry

[E]Woah  oh [D] oh, Sweet child o' [A] mine
[E] Woah oh oh [G] oh, Sweet love of [A] mine

SOLO - A A G G D D A A x2

[A] She's got eyes of the bluest skies, as [G] if they thought of rain
I [D] hate to look into those eyes and [A] see an ounce of pain

[A] Her hair reminds me of a warm safe place, where [G] as a child I'd hide
And [D] pray for the thunder and the rain, to [A] quietly pass me by

[E]Woah  oh [D] oh, Sweet child o' [A] mine
[E] Woah oh oh [G] oh, Sweet love of [A] mine




  1. One of the first songs I learned on the Uke, but I played it C-F-Dm-F, then G-F-C-C for wooing.
