You Belong to Me

| Comments

I started playing the ukulele because of this song. I googled all over for a satisfactory tab, but none of them seemed to be exactly right.

I pieced this tab together from the tabs I found and from watching a couple of videos on YouTube.


"Tonight You Belong to Me" as played by
Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters in "The Jerk".
Tab by Andrew Otto

Notes:

While playing the bridge, he varies between Cm 
and Gmaj7 by sliding the Cm bar down one fret 
then back up.  When changing from G to E7, he does 
a fancy walk down with the G chord.  The last two 
down/up strums at the end of that measure slide down
to F# and then F before changing to E7.  It's
kinda tricky, and the song will sound fine
without it if it is too hard.
