“Everlong” By The Foo Fighters ‘Ukulele Chords

A seriously cool tune from one of my favorite rockbands. Dave Grohl’s straight-ahead style mixed with haunting songwriting makes for a piece that is fun to cover on the ‘ukulele, but will also teach you much if you work to figure it out.

Here’s a video tutorial I put together to explain the interesting chord fingerings and riff. You’ll need a low-G string on your ‘ukulele. Chord sheet included below.

Hello, I've waited here for you ...everlong
Dmaj7     Bsus2            Gsus2           Bsus2
Tonight I throw myself into and out of the red, out of her head she sang

Dmaj7         Bsus2               Gsus2    Bsus2
Come down and waste away with me, down with me
Dmaj7        Bsus2           Gsus2           Bsus2
Slow how you wanted it to be I'm over my head, out of her head she sang

And I wonder
            [Riff]
When I sing along with you

Chorus:
Bm                       G                 D
If everything could ever feel this real forever
Bm                     G             D
If anything could ever be this good again
Bm                       G             D     
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
                             A               G
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

...She sang

Breathe out so I can breathe you in, hold you in
Dmaj7      Bsus2                  Gsus2        Bsus2              
And now, I know you've always been out of your head, out of my head I sang
