Hi, people. Having difficulty finding the chords for this song. There's a song with a similar title that he performed, but the one I'm searching for is in this video:

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.

Sorry can't help looked but looks like Elvis jogged all the responses. But someone with such fine taste in music deserves to get their answer. I wonder can you take it with a standard blues progression

Sorry that was meant to be hogged, you know auto-correct can be your worst enema.

It's a standard 12 bar blues in G. This is the form. Works for countless other songs too. Find some other songs that use it!

This song is what I call "uptown blues" which uses 9th chords etc.. In order to get that sound on a uke in G I would recommend playing Dm for the G7 Gm for the C7 and DAmm for the D7 as they compose the upper extensions of said 9ths.
