Ian Dury – Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll

I really should have included this one in one of my Guitar Riffs for Ukulele seasons, but it took hearing it on the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s album to make me get round to tabbing it.

If you’re playing along with the Dury version, this tab is for D-tuning. For the UOGB version, use C tuning.
