I wish I could do better by you 'cause that's what you deserve,

You sacrifice so much of your life in order for this to work.

While I'm out chasin' my own dreams,
Sailin' around the world,

be lost.

G                               G/F# 
You don't ask for no diamond rings,
No delicate string of pearls,

That's why I wrote this song to sing, my beautiful girl.
Em C D G G/F#

This tab is a freaking waste of everyone's time. It's a copy of the first submitted tab and is only transposed 5 steps. On top of that the chords above should be labelled as G, G/F#,... not C, C/B... because you normally state chords relative to the capo and at capo 3 the G is not a C anyway. Capo 5 puts a guitar at Ukulele tuning, but since the original is at capo 3 the only way you could play C on the ukulele to accompany a guitar (playing a G-shape with capo 3) would be to use a capo on the uke at 3. I've never seen a capo on a uke tho it could certainly be done.

(I hope this isn't some automated conversion by Ultimate Guitar to cater to the growing popularity of the Ukulele.)

Lack of accuracy.

I find that you can just play the same chords as the guitar tab that I saw on this website. It sounds almost better to me. There is no reason to have this special tab for the uke.
