    Ah-- could be. Someday I'm going to learn to think of that first. Thanks.

    I can't help, but y'all made me remember how much I love the Leon Redbone version!

    I love the song forum because every once in awhile I find a really cool song that I'm not familiar with. I hadn't heard Lazy Bones before & I love it. I found it on Jim's Ukulele Songbook in C, D, and G. To me C sounds best, but I can't sing it in C. G fits my feeble voice the best. I added a couple chord (Ddim in the verse, Em6 in the chorus) & a G to G7 walk down to Jim's version. The walk down is G, slide the G down a fret (can't find a chord name on Uke Buddy) then G7. Sounds good to me.

    I’m playing 0121, not 0222. I’m taking my G shape 0232 and sliding it down one fret. When I put that in Uke Buddy chord maker it has no chord name.

    Thanks. I think I’ll put F#b9 on my songsheet & draw a chord diagram to remember what I did for that walk down.
