The fact that C, C7, G, and F are the only chords stated to be in the song, I find it rude that they unexpectedly threw in G7. Who else agrees?

I don't understand why people are praising this as a "great chord chart". As someone below already stated, G7 is unnecessary, but more importantly, the PLACEMENT of the chords is mostly off with the lyrics. Trying singing along with the chords as written, and you'll know what I mean. My uke student struggled with this yesterday and now I have to redo these chords so she can practice the correct way as she sings. Has anyone heard of "Harmonic Rhythm?"

This is a great song, often called, heartwarming, but a close look at the lyrics after the first verse shows that they're better described as “heartbreaking”.

I fingerpick using the pattern C E A G E and it sounds very nice. It was a bit weird on the F chord though, so for the F chord only I use the pattern C E A E C.

For another verse (same strum pattern) there's:

You make me giggle
You make me laugh
With all the funny things you do
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

Since this in the key of C I would be inclined to say that G7 is musicly correct chord.

Chord chart displays "G", Tab calls out "G7", which is correct?

Great tab! I'm not sure if this is a mistake but I personally like the sound better if you switch chord on "know" rather than on "dear." Other than that, I love it!

The G7 sounds fine as a G and the C7 is totally optional. Other than that its great!
