Getting Ready to Get Down by Josh Ritter Ukulele Chords


G C/G G D throughout except for Em C/G G D in the bridge.

Mama got a look at you and got a little worried
[C/G]Papa got a look at you and got a little worried
The pastor got a look and said, y’all had better hurry
Send her off to a little bible college in Missouri

And now you come back, saying you know a little bit about
[C/G]Every little thing they ever hoped you’d never figure out
Eve ate the apple ’cause the apple was sweet
What kinda' god would ever keep a girl from getting what she needs?

And I’m
Getting ready to [C/G]get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

Now, people cross the street when you walk in their direction
[C/G]Talk between their teeth throwin’ epithets
And the doctor thinks the devil must’ve got you by your senses
But to live the way you please doesn’t sound like possession

It’s four long years studying the bible
[C/G]Infidels, Jezebels, Salomes and Delilahs
Back off the bus in your own hometown
Say you didn’t like me then you probably won’t like me now

And I’m
Getting ready to [C/G]get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

All the men of the country club, the ladies of ‘xiliary
[C/G]Talk about love like its apple pie and liberty
To really be a saint, you gotta really be a virgin
Dry as a page of the king james version

No ooh la-las, no oh, hell yeses
No I[C/G] can’t waits I gotta see you againses
Turn the other cheek, take no chances
Jesus hates your high school dances

G C G D x2

Said your soul needed savin’ so they sent you off to bible school
You [C/G]learned a little more than they had heard was in the golden rule
Be good to everybody, be a strength to the weak
Be a joy to the joyful, be the laughter in the grief

And give your love freely to whoever that you please
Don’t [C/G]let nobody tell you ’bout the who you ought to be
And when you get damned in the popular opinion
It’s just another damn of the damns you’re not giving

And I’m
Getting ready to [C/G]get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

Mama got a look at you and got a little worried
Papa got a look at you and got a little worried
The pastor got a look and said, y’all had better hurry
Send her off to a little bible college in Missouri

And now, you come back, saying you know a little bit about
Every little thing they ever hoped you’d never figure out
The Red Sea, the Dead Sea, the Sermon on the Mount
If you wanna’ see a miracle, watch me get down

And I’m
Getting ready to [C/G]get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

I am
Getting ready to [C/G]get down
Getting ready to get down
Getting ready to get down

[C/G]
