3-Chord Songs, part 7: Miscellaneous Songs

To finish up our group's exploration of 3-chord songs, here are several which use either a unique or a mixed pattern which is not easily classified. As always, they are presented as titles only so that you can google lyrics, listen for the chord changes, and try them in different keys or using different chord formations. Have fun playing!
  1. Catch A Falling Star
  2. Willie and the Hand Jive
  3. It's So Easy
  4. Surfin' USA
  5. Ring of Fire
  6. Love Me Do
  7. Down On The Corner
  8. Me And Bobby McGee
  9. Layla
  10. Rivers of Babylon
  11. Three Little Birds
  12. One Love
  13. Margaritaville
For further exploration of ukulele playing using 3 chords, check out Jim d'Ville's 3 Chord Club. He has a separate section on 3-chord songs of the Beatles, and a set of tutorials on understanding the Circle of Fifths. I plan to dig into both of these myself as soon as possible.
