Train – Sing Together (Chords)


Train – Sing Together (Chords)

I’ve had a few requests for this ukulele song from Train’s new album already. So I thought I best get this one done before it turns into another Hey Soul Sister stand-off. Plus I like this one more than Hey Soul Sister.

If you want to play along with the original, shove a capo on the first fret or tune up half a step. But if you don’t mind playing in a different key you can just play it in standard tuning.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this pattern almost all the way through:

d – d u d u d u

Which sounds like this slowed down:


Main Strum

Do that once each time you see a chord name.

The only exception is the end of the bridge. There do d – d u for the G7 and G7sus4 and a long down strum for the G7′. Which sounds like this:


Bridge Strum

(If you prefer a chart without the chord repetitions here you go).

Twiddly Bits

If you can’t be arsed with the extra twiddles you can replace both Am’ and Am9 with the standard Am chord. And you can replace G7sus4 and G7′ with the usual G7 chord.

    Hey Soul Sister was at least catchy and somewhat tolerable. This is neither.

    Hey Soul Sister’s catchiness is one of the things that made it completely intolerable to me. Better a bad song that doesn’t get stuck in my head for the rest of my life than a bad song that does!

    Very cheesy but definitely one for a bunch of folks around a campfire. Thank you!

    I’m never big on the lyrics Train has. “You are the leaves of my family tree” – what does that have to do with the rest of it? It’s like that line about his “untrimmed chest” in Hey Soul Sister. Why do I want to hear that?
    They’re both catchy, but ..I admit I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I can play some of his songs. Ah well.

    Thanks for the chords! =)

    Thanks for the chords, I was kind of afraid to see what new ukulele song Train put out after Hey Soul Sister got overplayed to hell but I like this one, a bit more mellow (reminds me of his older stuff).

    Just a heads up, there’s an Fm in the bridge but you didn’t put the chord chart up top for it. I happen to know Fm but that may throw a few people off, just so you know!

    We are a ukulele club located in the central valley, Stockton, California. Dedicated ukulele players wanted to play, strum and learn from each other and to share knowledge with others so they may enjoy playing this super little instrument the call the “Jumping Flea”

    I don’t understand why people can’t just like a song cheesy or not. Great job Woodshed and it isn’t Mozart but you can bob your head to it. I like both those songs!
