This is a very good site to check out...

http://www.doctoruke.com/songs.html

Here's a song I worked on a few months, with a few of my own chord variations in the middle:

( Mainland Mango Concert that is, with Martin fluorocarbon strings. )

Another good song from Doc Uke's collection is "If I Had You." I've posted Ben Mealer's version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBO_WoZP5RY) before, but it is always worth listening to.

The good thing is most the songs have sound clips. "Tonight You Belong To Me" is a good one as well. I haven't got the hang of "Witchcraft" or "Summer Wind" yet though.

I've shared this site before too: http://www.scorpexuke.com/songlist.html

All different kinds of songs. I can see some working better than others, but the variety is very cool.

I agree!

Doctoruke.com is not only a great site, he's a great guy!

I marvel at his chord arrangements... and love them :)

I've borrowed (read unabashedly stolen) many of his arrangements!

keep uke'in',

Kanaka has complied a large and growing list of ukulele sites that offer song sheets. Check 'em out:

That is a great collection!

Two more, even though more guitar oriented, might be good to mention:
http://www.theguitarguy.com/songs.htm
http://www.ralphpatt.com/Song.html

The first one (Guitar Guy) is where I got inspiration to try a different chord progression for "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," which I posted in the tabs and chords section a few months ago (also made a video more recently.)

The second site might be useful if you know the basic melody of a song and just want to riff on some jazz chords.

After having lots of fun with one of Dr. Uke's charts, I had to search to see if people here have given him some love.

The Dr. Uke site is great. And for me, it's so great to see the love for baritone ukes. He has Many baritone charts.
I'm playing All My Loving by the Beatles from one of his charts. Tons of fun.
