The chords to an ukulele song are a key part of the music. Chords provide harmony to the sound, and when paired with a strum, you can convincingly play many of your favorite songs easily.
Here you will find the lyrics and chords for songs from many popular artists. These sheets focus on the words, chords, and basic song structure as is easily played on the uke.
You can get each as a printable PDF file or view the songs in your browser.
Below you will find songs spanning 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.
If you’re just starting to play the ukulele, check out these pages for beginner songs that filter out the more difficult options.

How to Find More Ukulele Songs
There are so many mainstream songs out there that it would be impossible to put a dent in posting all of them here, so I’ll recommend a couple good places to find chords to your favorite tunes (the chords for guitar are the same as for ukulele).
- Stewart Greenhill – A solid list of popular songs presented with an interactive play-along format with chord diagrams
Google is also your friend for finding ANYTHING ukulele-related. Try a search like: “[song name] chords”. Add the band name if you results are muddy: [song name] by [band name] chords. You don’t need to include “ukulele” because, like I said above, uke chords are the same as guitar chords.
