Put A Little Love ʻUkulele Chords by Natural Vibrations

Jump to chords

allnaturalThis is one of my favorite Jawaiian songs. It has a bridge! (But that’s not the only reason I like it.) Dial up a little bit of envelope filter and go to town.

The picking for Put a Little Love is pretty straightforward with only a few hammer-ons to watch for. Play the second two lines of tab with your index finger plectrum-style or by alternating thumb/index. That’s going to make it easiest to play the fast open notes.

To play the intro just like the record, hit two punches on the first three chords in the progression and then one each for the last two. So it will be like:

C// G// Am// F/ G/

The riffs after each chord go like this:

For C: -3-5-3- on the E string
For G: -2-4-2- on the C string
For Am: -5\- on the G string (low G)

C           G       Am          F     G
Well I remember when we were in love
C       G          Am              F    G
Inseparable my baby like a hand in glove
C               G          Am                F    G
But things have changed and you're no longer there
C             G               Am                  F    G
And all you have to know girl is that I will take care so…

Chorus:
C            G              Am             F    G
Put a little lovin’ in your heart (In your heart)
C		    G                 Am                  F    G	
Cause that’s where love will have to start (Will have to start)
C	     G              Am 	   F    G
Put a little faith in your mind (In your mind)
C	   	    G                  Am   F   G7
Cause every little thing will be just fine

C         G          Am       F     G
And I remember when we’d hold hands
C              G                 Am                        F   G
We take a walk on the beach girl and write our name in the sand
C               G       Am                   F    G
But things have changed and you're no longer there
C           G                 Am                  F    G
And all you have to know girl is that I will take care so…

Chorus>

Bridge:
Em                 F
You didn't have to leave me without a say and
Em                    F                   G
Now I’m left here all alone and I’m still praying
