These are ukulele tabs because I couldn't find them anywhere. Theyre not perfect (a low C is missing that the capo was in the way of)but they work and its a beautiful song and the uke is a beautiful instrument. Also THis is my first time tabbing plucking and not only chords so I’m sorry if I have other mistakes that I dont know about.
