I am catching up with a hastily recorded version of "Leaving Liverpool". This has a fun sea shanty feel and a very sing-able chorus. As per usual there are lots of verses.
The chord progression for the verses is D/G/D/A/D/G/D/A/D Basically think "DG Dad" twice and you get to the end.
the chord progression for the chorus is A/G/D/A/D/G/D/A/D so if you put an "AGDA" before your "DG Dad" you will be fine. ;-)
Oh fare the well my own true love
I am sailing far far away
I am bound for California
And I don't know if I'll ever come again
So fare the well my own true love
When I return united we will be
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that's grieving me
But my darling, when I think of thee
Fare well to Lower Bedford Street
Anson Terrace and Park Lane
I am bound away for to leave you
But I don't know if I'll ever come again
I have sailed with Burgess once before
He is a man that I know quite well
If a man is a sailor he'll get along
But if not then he is sure for Hell
Oh the sun is in the harbor love
And you know that I can't remain
And I know it will be a long, long year
Before I see you again
I play a number of musical instruments. In addition to the ukulele I play the mandolin, guitar, rhythm bones, and a few other things. This page, though, is about my uke project. I recently decided to post once a week on a uke-themed topic. Most of these posts will be simple songs you can sing along to. Maybe later I will do more informational videos as well.
