This is the original sheet music. Note that it says “With Ukulele Accompaniment”
Here’s a classic ʻukulele chalangalanger.
Five Foot Two, Eyes of Blue, also known as Has Anybody Seen My Gal? is a prime example of cycling 7th chords and that old swing/tin-pan alley sound that it creates. So get out your banjo ukes and sing along!
The arrangement is pretty simple – you can add to the melody by just strumming a harmonizing chord on the 1 or the 1 and 3. There is a lot you can do to make the chords more interesting, but I always like to provide a framework that you can embellish rather than do the work for you and exclude beginner players. If it’s too easy, make it harder.

I’m an ‘ukulele artist from Honoka’a, Hawai’i, where I run this site from a little plantation house in the jungle. I’ve taught workshops internationally, made Herb Ohta Jr. laugh until he cried, and once borrowed a uke to jam with HAPA onstage in my boardshorts. More about me
