GutBucketeer Chord Req: Sure Had A Wonderful Time Last Night (13) Chord Req: Sure Had A Wonderful Time Last Night 22 Feb 09


Someone made the request for the chords to Louis Jordan's "Sure Had A Wonderful Time Last Night" in the Ukulele Cosmos Forum. BB King has also done the song and people get confused about whose it is. Any way I've been wanting to play the song for some time too. Does anyone know the chords. I'm sure they are probably very simple to figure out, but not on my gutbucket :-)

Here are the lyrics

Sure Had A Wonderful Time
Louis Jordan

I sure had a wonderful time last night
Least wise they tell me I did

I sure had a wonderful time last night
Really blew my lid

Went to a party, I recollect that much
But after four or five, you know i lost my touch
I sure had a wonderful time last night
Least wise they tell me I did

I had a whale of good time last night
Really got myself some kicks
I sure had a wonderful time last night
Took me right back to the sticks

Between that hillbilly band and old uncle Zeke
And that new atomic beverage that they called "sneaky Pete"

I sure had a wonderful time last night
Least wise they tell me I did

Sure had a wonderful time last night
Don't know how i got to bed

Sure had a wonderful time last night
Come here, feel this lump on my head

They say i got kinda' noisy
And started to shout
Four big bouncers grabbed me
But i threw them out
I sure had a wonderful time last night
Least wise they tell me i did

Sure had a wonderful time last night
Really had myself some fun

Sure had a wonderful time last night
Didn't get home until about half past one

You know I'd like to take you with me the next time I go
But where the heck was it?
Sure would like to know
But i sure had a wonderful time last night
