My Get Up and Go – #Ukulele Strum-Along with Chords and Lyrics

“My Get Up and Go” was popularized in folk music circles by Pete Seeger. Pete didn’t write it but performed it regularly in concert. According to Pete Seeger’s autobiography, the actual author was a “newspaper man,” and when Pete contacted him to offer him royalties for the song, the author refused and said he’d rather remain anonymous, so Pete claimed to be the only one who knew the author’s true identity, and he never revealed that info.

I played it in the key of C as a ukulele strum-along in 3/4 time.
