There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is one of my favourite swing dancing songs, it's dirty as hell if you
know '20s slang and it's super simple. I play this on the guitar and on the
ukelele - you only have to remember the chord patterns for each.


The key is to down-strum on all the even beats of the 8-counted bar
(ie. 2, 4, 6, 8) so in the first line & bar that'd be the word "like",
the pause after "pie", the word "like", the pause after "cake" and so on.
These guys leave off the very first strum of the whole song and hit the
second Db for effect, but you get the idea.

The chord progression is the same throughout the song:

Db Db7 F# (F#)
Db Bb7 Eb7 Ab/Eb
Db Db7 F# (F#)
Db Ab/Eb Db

           Db     Db7     (Db7)   F#   (F#)   (F#)   (F#)
I like pie,    I like cake,    I like anything you make

   Db                Bb7           Eb7           Ab/Eb
I like your crackers too, crumbled up in chicken stew

    Db           Db7             F#
When I see your jelly rolls, then I loose my self control

       Db              Ab/Eb                Db
But of all these things I like you best the most.

That's it! If you listen to the clip above in YouTube you'll hear the
chords are actually a little more complex (there's some variation
to keep the song interesting) but these are root chords and will get
you through in tune!

I think the correct lyrics are "I like anything you bake" and "but of all these things, I like you best of all"
