Ukelele Lessons in 4th Class

We are going to learn Tom Petty’s “Learning To Fly” on the ukelele. The advanced guitar class on Thursday have started learning the song on guitar and it’s great. Only 4 chords. F. C, Am, G. We hope to have some video of some of the 4th class pupils playing and singing the song together. So check back soon!!! Here’s the lyrics for anyone who wants to try it with their class. Use the ukelele chord guide above.

 

“Learning To Fly”

Chords for guitar and ukelele: F, C, Am, G

Well I started out down a dirty road
Started out all alone
And the sun went down as I crossed the hill
And the town lit up, the world got still[Chorus:]
I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings
Coming down is the hardest thingWell the good ol’ days may not return
And the rocks might melt and the sea may burn[Chorus]Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I’ve started out for God knows where
I guess I’ll know when I get thereI’m learning to fly, around the clouds
But what goes up must come down[Chorus]
