The KKK Took My Baby Away by The Ramones

I suggested that we try to play “The KKK Took My Baby Away” by The Ramones so I have posted it here:The KKK Took My Baby Away

YouTube link:

This song was originally recorded in the key of G# minor (5 sharps) so to make it more playable on a uke I have taken it down one-half step. I hope it works.
