Aloha,

I'm looking for some songs that I can just sit in my garden and play, on a sunny day. Just chillin' and strummin' :)

I want to push myself, but I don't want real hard songs, just intermediate kind of level...

I'm getting bored of hearing myself play the same old things haha


Thanks
Joe

No better time for Daydream than July!

C / / / A7 / / / Dm7 / / / G7 / / /
What a day for a daydream
What a day for a daydreamin' boy
And I'm lost in a daydream
Dreamin' 'bout my bundle of joy

F / F#dim7 / C / A7 /(3 times) Dm7 / G7 /
And even if time ain't really on my side
It's one of those days for taking a walk outside
I'm blowing the day to take a walk in the sun
And fall on my face on somebody's new-mown lawn

C / / / A7 / / / Dm7 / / / G7 / / /
I've been having a sweet dream
I been dreaming since I woke up today
It's starring me and my sweet thing
'Cause she's the one makes me feel this way

F / F#dim7 / C / A7 /(3 times) Dm7 / G7 /
And even if time is passing me by a lot
I couldn't care less about the dues you say I got
Tomorrow I'll pay the dues for dropping my load
A pie in the face for being a sleepy bull toad

C / / / A7 / / / Dm7 / / / G7 / / /
{Whistle}

F / F#dim7 / C / A7 /(3 times) Dm7 / G7 /
And you can be sure that if you're feeling right
A daydream will last long into the night
Tomorrow at breakfast you may prick up your ears
Or you may be daydreaming for a thousand years

C / / / A7 / / / Dm7 / / / G7 / / /
What a day for a daydream
Custom made for a daydreaming boy
And now I'm lost in a daydream
Dreaming 'bout my bundle of joy

Check out UU's Ukulele Resource Thread (http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?15464-Ukulele-Resources-%28Updated%29). There are a number of links to songbooks available for downloading. You may just find something there. Another valuable resource is Richard G's Ukulele Songbook (http://www.scorpex.net/Uke/).

Dream a Little Dream, Mamas & the Papas
Beyond the Sea, Bobby Darin
I'll Be Seeing You, Frank Sinatra

The chords for all of those are pretty easy to find, especially if you don't need a ukulele chord chart in the song itself.

"Devil and the deep blue sea" is great little tune and Uke Hunt has a good version tabbed out.

I know you said you were looking for things to strum, but if you want to challenge yourself a bit, you might look into some fingerpicking tunes. :p
