    And here's a thread with a list of songs that fit:

    I'd suggest the FUN song from Spongebob

    C..............................F
    "F" is for friends who do stuff together

    C........................G7
    "U" is for you and me

    C.................................F
    "N" is for anywhere and anytime at all

    C.......................G7............C
    Down here in the deep blue sea


    Verse 2:

    F is for frolic through all the flowers
    U is for ukulele (see, it's the perfect ukulele song!)
    N is for nose-picking, chewing gum, and sand licking
    Here with my best buddy

    Do you have a link for the Three Chord Workbook that is mentioned in the Two Chord Workbook?

    If you know C, G, Am and F there's a ton of songs you can play. Am is a one-finger chord....ring finger on the second fret of the G string.

    If the chords are C G Am F you'll find a lot of later pop tunes that fit. If they're C Am F G you'll find a lot of fifties/early sixties rock songs that work. I'd hazard to guess there are hundreds of songs you could play with just those four chords....
    Things get better with age. I'm approaching magnificent....

    Kala KA-SC :: Sapele /ebony soprano, handmade :: Kiwaya K-Wave Tele Uke :: Big Island KTO-TR :: Lanikai LU-8EK :: Eastman concert prototype :: vintage banjolele :: Mainland gloss mahogany concert

    Your post refers to 62 2-chord songs, but I'm not seeing how to get the list - Thanks for your help!

    Whoops.

    a tisket a tasket
    ain't gonna rain no more
    bell bottom trousers
    billy boy
    buffalo gals
    clementine
    chop sticks
    day-o
    deep in the heart of texas
    did you ever see a lassie
    doggie in the window
    don't sit under the apple tree
    down in the valley
    eh cumpari
    found a peanut
    go tell aunt rhody
    mulberry bush
    whole world in his hands
    sat on the steps ans smoked a cigar
    hokey pokey
    irish jig
    itsy bitsy spider
    jambalaya
    la cucaracha
    little red caboose
    london bridge
    long long ago
    mary had a little lamb
    maryann
    merrily we roll along
    my youth is all spent
    mexican hat dance
    oh dear what can the matter be
    oh where has my little dog gone
    polly wolly doodle
    rock of ages
    row your boat
    shortening bread
    simple melody
    singin in the rain
    skip to my lou
    streets of laredo
    sweet betsy from pike
    sweet surender
    sweet violets
    ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay
    ten little indians
    farmer in the dell
    more we get together
    hot time in the old town tonight
    old lsdy who swallowed a fly
    the way we wash our cloths
    tom dooley
    whos afraid of the big bad wolf
    UWC; only those who have not been can rationalize not going.

    Doctor Uke's site has many of the songs you're looking for, and has MP3 files that allow you to play along while you learn the chords and changes. There is a special section for beginner songs.

    Not the best way to learn your chords, but if you are not playing with others, you can play many 3 chord songs using C, F, G7, even if song calls for 3 other chords.
    Ok to have fun while you are learning chords using Uncle Rod's Ukulele Boot camp or some other method.
