I found that it was difficult to play the bridge in the Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’ from the guitar tabs, so I converted it to ukulele tabs.  The following is from the ukulele chord finder (click on “PLAY ALONG SONGS GO”).  The bridge tablature is converted from Andrew Rogers’ version at ultimate-guitar.com.  If either of these sites have a problem with this being up, I’m glad to take this down, but I hope that you will at least, then, add my ukulele tablature to your pages.

The tabs for the bridge are in two sections: the first accurately transposes the notes over from guitar, while the second is easier to play (it’s based on ukulele chords) and sounds just as good.

[A] God only knows [E] what I'd be with[F#m7]out you

[D] If you should [Bm6] ever leave me
[F#m] Though [A] life would still [F#m6] go on believe me
[E] The world could show [Cdim] nothing to me
[E] So what good would [A#m7-5] living do me
[A] God only knows [E] what I'd be with[F#m7]out you
