How to Play Im Yours Ukulele Lesson – Amazing Song in 5 Chords

Im Yours Ukulele Lesson in 5 Chords

Jason Mraz’s huge hit is, no doubt, probably the most covered song on ukulele over the previous few years which is pretty interesting when you think that Mraz actually wrote the track on an electric guitar. Here’s how to play the I’m Yours ukulele lesson.

Chords for This Song.

Chords that you need to learn and need to know for how to play I’m Yours ukulele lesson, an amazing song by Jason Mraz, thru the simple version of this track (there are a couple of more in the middle part which I’ve not included in this post) and they’re C, Am, F, D7, and G.

The excellent news is that’s a pretty easy set of chords and shouldn’t bother you too much in case you’ve been playing for some time.

Im Yours chords

The actual track by Jason Mraz is in the key of B but it’s simpler to play this track in the key of C so I’ve transposed the chords. If you’re wanting to play along with the recording (and even with Jason if you know him) then you’ll both have to tune down half a step or brave it in the key of B.

Strumming Pattern

This can be a nice strumming pattern and it fits so nicely with the ukuleles. It’s upbeat, enjoyable, and actually satisfying to play.

Easy Version

The strumming pattern at its heart could be very easy. It’s simply DUDUDU played just about throughout but their strums are damped and don’t ring out.

To begin with I’d recommend laying your fretting fingers across the frets and simply getting the good feel. You’re going to want to get a little bit of a swing feel to your strumming to get the relaxed feel of the track.

Notice the emphasis that I’m placing on beats 2 and 4 by strumming with a bit extra strength and purpose than the other strums.

Messing With Muting

I prefer to mute the 2nd and 4th strums (the backbeat) and let the restring out however you will get a little creative right here. This makes use of some muted/chunk strums and it’s an excellent track to really get your chunking nailed down (you’re going to be doing it so much all through).


Just about everybody that covers this track strums it in a different way and that’s nice – so long as you’re getting the good feel of the track then it doesn’t matter whether or not you’re putting an up strum in a different place. If it sounds good, go with it.

Song Structure


Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, and I’m trying to get back


Before the cool done run out I’ll be giving it my best test
And nothing’s gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some


But I won’t hesitate no more,
No more, it cannot wait I’m yours



Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We are just one big family
It’s your god forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved


So, I won’t hesitate no more,
No more, it cannot wait I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours


-d-do do you but do you, d-d-do but you want to come one
Scooch one over closer dear and I will nibble your ear
Bap bap bap woooooo ho ho ooooh


I’ve been spending’ way too long checking’ my tongue in the mirror
And bending’ over backwards just to try to see it clearer
My breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I’m a saying’s there isn’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue


But I won’t hesitate no more,
No more, it cannot wait I’m yours


Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find, that the sky is yours

So please don’t, don’t please don’t
– There’s no need to complicated –
Cause our time is short
This is, this is, this is our fate
I’m yours
