Joe Cocker – You Can Leave Your Hat On Ukulele Chords

Voice Range: GG (1 octave + 1 half tone) – how to use this?

This will sound way better on a low G string ukulele, but it will also work on a high G.

Better way to grab some of the chords:

   C   C7
A|-3---3--|
E|-3---6--|
C|-4---3--|
G|-5---2--|
