    Wow haven't heard that song for years! Karen had such an incredible voice, gone way too soon. Great job on this, and that special uke always sounds phenomenal to my ears.

    Thanks, luv2uke! You be careful, too! A famous comedian just passed away in Japan due to coronavirus. It's serving as a real wake-up call to people who hadn't taken the virus seriously before. The scariness level just went up a notch!

    I had a request for the chords, so I think I'll add it here:

    [intro: Am /// C /// F /// C /// D7 /// G- F- Dm7- Em7- Am /// ////

    [Am] Long ago [C] and oh so [F] far away [C]
    I fell in [D7] love with you [F] before the [E7] second show
    [Am] Your guitar, [C] it sounds so [F] sweet and clear [C]
    But you're not [D7] really here, [F] it's just the [E7] radio

    [F] Don't you remember you [Em] told me you [Dm] love me, [C] baby
    You [F] said you'd be coming [Em] back this [Dm] way again, [C] baby
    [F] Baby, baby, [Em] baby, [Dm] baby, oh [C] baby
    I [Bb] love you, [C] I really do

    Am /// C /// F /// C /// D7 /// G- F- Dm7- Em7- Am /// ////

    [Am] Loneliness [C] is such a [F] sad affair [C]
    And I can [D7] hardly wait [F] to be with [E7] you again
    [Am] What to say [C] to make you [F] come again [C]
    Come back to [D7] me again, [F] and play your [E7] sad guitar

    [F] Don't you remember you [Em] told me you [Dm] love me, [C] baby
    You [F] said you'd be coming [Em] back this [Dm] way again, [C] baby
    [F] Baby, baby, [Em] baby, [Dm] baby, oh [C] baby
    I [Bb] love you, [C] I really do [Em]

    I’ve read Kate considered herself a drummer who sang, but...
    I could and can wrap myself in the contra-alto that she had.
    So sad she left us so soon.

    Thanks for the tribute

    Thanks, Another Ukulele! It was a good move to have Karen up front as the lead singer, instead of behind everybody and the drum kit. Yes, she left us way too soon!
