Lyrics and Chords: My Uke Is Gonna Get Me Through The Day

I have been asked for the chords to this song (quite flattered really) so I give the lyrics and the chords I play, in full here.
NB at the end of some lines I play G/Gsus4/G, etc as a little riff.

My Uke Is Gonna See Me Through The Day 
by John Dyhouse

refrain
[G]/ When I ‘m feeling [E7]/ low
[A7]/ Got no place to go
[D7] And no one’s ‘round to raise my sorry [G]/[Gsus4]/[G]/ mood.
[G]/ I don’t sit a [E7]/ round/
[A7]/Staring at the ground
[D7 ] I Pick up my 4-string and I start to [G] play … [D7]

verse 1
Oh my [G] uke is gonna [C] get me through the [G] day
[C] Raise my voice and [D7] strum along and [Bm7] play
[C] My spirits soon will [D7] rise, [G] soaring to the [C] skies
Oh my [G] uke is gonna [D7] get me through the [G] day [D7]

verse 2
The cheerful sound of strumming is so cool
Takes me back to days I spent in school
No cares to weigh me down, no sign of a frown
Oh my uke is gonna get me through the day

verse 3
No pills or potions do the same for me
I’ve tried them all, they fail it’s plain to see
But when I hear those chords, I’m never ever bored
Oh my uke is gonna get me through the day [no D7 chord]  [G / Gsus4  G]
