Bad Moon Rising – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics

John Fogerty wrote this song, performed by his group, Creedence Clearwater Revival. It reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1969 and the single sold more than 2 million copies. It was the lead single from the CCR album, “Green River.” CCR played it in the key of D, which is way too high for my voice, so I played it in the key of G in order to hit the high notes without getting a hernia.

Help Me Make it Through the Night – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics

Another one of Kris Kristofferson’s great country songs, it first became a hit in 1970 when recorded by Sammi Smith, reaching #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles chart. I recorded it in the key of C. I should probably mention that I used some suspended chords but didn’t write them in over the lyrics, partly because it was hard to fit them in but also because they’re optional and you can just omit them if you want to and stay on the regular chord. Here are the notes in case you have trouble figuring it out: For the C chord you add the 2nd string 1st fret, and for the G or G7 chord you add the 1st string 3rd fret. That’s all there is to it.

Together Again – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords & Lyrics

First released in 1964 as the B-side of Buck Owens’ #1 hit, “My Heart Skips a Beat,” this song has since been recorded by dozens of other artists and was a big hit for both Ray Charles and Emmylou Harris. I just did a simple strum with easy chords in the key of G (G, C, and D). If you feel more comfortable playing an easier D7 chord instead of D that works just as well.
