Christmas Ukulele: You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch (Chords)

You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch (Chords)(PDF)

I always use this song as the soundtrack to my pre-Christmas chores: stealing presents, setting light to trees and punching reindeer. So I’ve written up the chords for Jonathan K Miller’s excellent ukulele version.

    Despite it being a three-year-old post, I just discovered this. A tip: if you can’t play the Cm6 with 1222 (my middle finger can’t bar at that angle) try 3444. I think that’s what Miller’s doing anyway.

    is the strumming just D U D U?

  15. Woodshed September 28th, 2012 10:30 am

    kian: Yep, that should get you through it.

    It would be super nice if the other 3 verses were on here. It is difficult to memorize this song with all the moving parts while trying to read the next three verse. Just a thought, but honestly this is the best version I’ve ever heard
