L-O-V-E ʻUkulele Chords by Nat King Cole

Jump to chords

Here’s a cute song that most ʻukulele players have heard Julia Nunes play at least once.

It has a lot going on in it, but at the heart it’s a pretty simple song. Beyond the fanciness the chords go: F, C7, F, Bb, G7, C, G7, C7. Everything else is just decoration. So feel free to simplify. If you need a hand, an extensive collection of chords can be found here.

Tune down a half step to match Julia’s pitch.
