Sophie Madeleine – I Just Can’t Stop Myself (Writing Love Songs About You) (Chords)

Sophie Madeleine – I Just Can’t Stop Myself (Chords)

The biggest surprise that came from my stats-trawl is that, after Hey, Soul Sister, this song is the second most searched-for-but-not-found on the site. And this one is much more of pleasure to put up.

The song doesn’t feature any uke and is in the uke-unfriendly key of Ab. So capo 1st fret (or sing it down half a step).

Suggested Strumming

For most of the chords you can use this two bar pattern:

d – d u – u d u
– u d u – u d –

The only exception is the final line in each verse, just use the first part of the strum once for each chord except the final G (which is back to the original pattern). In the final verse, the C in the last line also uses the two bar pattern.

Buy it on BandCamp.

    Fantastic! May not have physically searched for it, but definitely one of the ones I’ve been on the look-out for. Thanks very much!

    The guitar player in my band wrote out the notation (not tab) for One Kiss Too Many for me if you ever want to tackle that on uke…

    Thank you, Woodshed. I love Sophie Madeleine – and I think I’ve asked for this tab before… I hope to see more from Ms. Sophie at the Uke Hunt!

    Best Regards!
