If I were in New Orleans today for Fat Tuesday, I’d be running the streets with my uke in hand — and a Sazerac and gumbo in my belly! But instead, I’m at the office with a black tea in hand and working on the Summer issue of Ukulele.


Luckily, YouTube user zen times ten posted this cover of the Steve Goodman-penned, Arlo Guthrie-popularized song “City of New Orleans,” which is giving me life today. Check out the the chords at DoctorUke.com.
