Been meaning to take a pass at this one for a while, then 

Julie Johnson

 said at dinner the other night that she wants to get together to do a version with me and 

Jill Morrison

, etc... So I thought I better go over the chord changes. Need to work it up in C, though, for Miss Julie's fabulous voice.

I've loved this song since I heard the Mama Cass version as a child. It's also on Eddie Vedder's uke album and in his song book, which I've been noodling through. 

Cass sang it in C, Eddie does it in G, I played this on my new bari uke from his chart, but with the uke tuned up a half step (I'm not crazy about the strings this uke came with, not quite enough tension...) so this is in Eb. 

Crazy, right?
