((I learned to play this song on the ukulele, I chose these chord positions based on how I also choose to play the ukulele. I've also tried out the song on the guitar in these chord positions, and it sounds dandy! It makes the key change visually apparent, and allows for quick, fluid movement along the fret board. If you feel like changing the chord positions, feel free! These made the most sense to me.)) It's in 3/4 timing, a waltz. Bb7 Eb Bb7 Eb
