Add this song to your “three chords and the truth” list! Talk about a fantastic jam song for an ʻukulele circle.
This is a super simple song to play on ʻukulele, but the one to to make note of is that the strum should be in a straight feel. If you swing it it will sound goofy.
The Joshua Tree
C I have climbed highest mountain I have run through the fields F C Only to be with you, only to be with you C I have run, I have crawled I have scaled these city walls F C These city walls, only to be with you Chorus: G F C But I still haven't found what I'm looking for G F C But I still haven't found what I'm looking for C I have kissed honey lips Felt the healing in her fingertips F C It burned like fire, this burning desire C I have spoke with the tongue of angels I have held the hand of a devil F C It was warm in the night, I was cold as a stone Chorus> C I believe in the kingdom come Then all the colors will bleed into one F C Bleed into one, well yes I'm still running C You broke the bonds and you loosed the chains Carried the cross of my shame F C Of my shame, you know I believed it Chorus> x2
