‘Ukulele Song Sheets

Here you will find the lyrics and chords for ‘ukulele songs from your favorite artists. These sheets focus on the words, harmony, and basic song structure as opposed to tabs.

If you are looking for ‘ukulele tabs, they can be found on a separate page. To go there, click on the button:

‘Ukulele Tabs

Below you will find song sheets encompassing several genres. Many popular songs are already available elsewhere on the web so I try to focus on songs that really benefit from an ‘ukulele-specific sheet.

They are marked by level for easier navigation.

Three or four basic chords
3-6 medium chords
Many and/or difficult chords

There are so many mainstream songs out there that it would be impossible to put a dent in posting all of them, so here are some good places to look for chords to your favorite mainstream songs (the chords for guitar are the same as for ‘ukulele).

  • Chordie
  • Ultimate-Guitar
  • Google: “[song name] chords”. Add the band name if you results are muddy: [song name] by [band name] chords.

Confused with the chords for a song? Try taking a look at the ukulele chord charts or How to Make Songs Easier page.

‘Ukulele Songbooks:


He Mele Aloha:

Hands down, the best Hawaiian songbook is He Mele Aloha . It’s very well presented – clear font, different colored chord names, chord diagrams, and a ton of great songs. One of the distinguishing features of this collection is the Hawaiian language aspect. Many times the focus of a songbook is on the chords, but in this case the Hawaiian lyrics received just as much detail. I’ve never heard a complaint from anybody about the lyrics being incorrect.
