Van Morrison – Keep It Simple (Chords)

Van Morrison picking up the ukulele for his latest album isn’t quite as incongruous as the likes of Portishead and Panic at the Disco using the uke, but it’s certainly an unexpected development.

True to the title, Van keeps this song simple. Lyrically, it’s the same old, “Walking down the street, Waaaa-hoor-hoor-king dooooown the street, ba-dap-dum-dee-dup,” he’s always been doing, and musically, the chorder is very simple. For the most part it’s just switching between F and Bb.

For the introduction, this little part is picked out (and repeated with various slight variations):
