Very difficult to play in the same key with a ukulele as the whole song is based on open chords Anyway let's give it a try

note D is in fact a Dadd11 at the guitar but the uke doesn't have the range to play it correctly

About this song

"Iris" is a song by American alternative rock band the Goo Goo Dolls. Originally written for the soundtrack of 1998 film 'City of Angels', staring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan, the song was later included on the band's sixth album Dizzy Up the Girl. The acoustic guitar in the song gives a distinctive sound as it is in an odd tuning, with 5 of the 6 strings tuned to D. This gives a ringing effect similar to a 12-string guitar.
