Not the chords, but I always think it's useful to post the lyrics, too. Maybe with the lyrics and recording, somebody can work out chords for you.

MELANCHOLY MARCH
(Dory Langdon Previn, as recorded by Julie London)

Melancholy March, your gloom is showing
Your winds are blowing across the sky
Melancholy March, your clouds are crying
Your trees are sighing as though they'll die

I know you’re late for winter's tale (unclear)
Too early for any spring
So we stand hand in hand
Waiting for anything

Melancholy March without a season
You have no reason or rhyme to be
Melancholy March, meet melancholy me
Melancholy March, meet melancholy me


Julie London recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h2kTzFw5ts

That's a challenging tune, PHJim. The first six notes are chromatic - no chord there. So far, if I put it in 4/4 to accommodate the beginning, subsequent chord changes come at odd places. In short, this is jazz - careful jazz with a composed accompaniment.

How would you feel about keeping the words and composing a new tune?

Leeneia, I tried to keep fairly close to the harmony and tune that Dory Previn wrote, but I did take some liberties with the chords and tune. This was a for weekly uke challenge that I take part in and this week it was to sing a song with your birth month mentioned in it. Here's what I came up with: Melancholy March ukulele challenge

Well done! That's a good rendition. I enjoyed listening, and as he passed by, the DH did a few dance steps, so he liked it too.
