The Sonics – Have Love, Will Travel

The Sonics Have Love Will Travel ukulele tab
Have Love, Will Travel midi

This song was originally written by Richard Berry who also came up with Louie, Louie. It has been covered many times by the likes of The Blues Brothers, Bruce Springsteen and, most recently, The Black Keys.

I’ve cheated a note in this tab so that it will fit on the uke in the original key of C.

    Hi Woodshed, I am addicted to this site, my boyfriend bought me a uke and love it, although have difficulty with my timing so practicing on that. But just wanted to say really appreciate this site and your work! Thanks.

    I was also just wondering if you have the rest of the song, as would really like to learn how to play this, or am i being completely stupid as to repeating the same line..?

    Thanks for your help!
