Verse:
   A                   D
My ship went down in a sea of sound
       Gbm     E         D
When I woke up alone I had everything
  A                    D
A handful of moments I wished I could change
      Gbm           E            D
And a tongue like a nightmare that cut like a blade
     A                   D
In a city of fools I was careful and cool
         Gbm      E          D
But they tore me apart like a hurricane
  A
A handful of moments 
  D                              Gbm E   D
I wish I could change but I was carried away

Chorus:
         A
Give me therapy
      E            Gbm
I'm a walking travesty
        D
But I'm smiling at everything
A                 E                 Gbm
Therapy, you were never a friend to me
            D
And you can keep all your misery.


          A                  D             Gbm       E            D

Verse 2:
   A
My lungs gave out
     D
As i faced the crowd
             Gbm          E           D               
I think that keeping this up could be dangerous
    A
I'm flesh and bone
       D
I'm a rolling stone
        Gbm     E         D
and the experts say I'm delirious

Chorus:
         A
Give me therapy
      E            Gbm
I'm a walking travesty
        D
But I'm smiling at everything
A                 E                 Gbm
Therapy, you were never a friend to me
            D
And you can take back your misery

Bridge:
Bm                     A
Arrogant boy, love yourself so no one has to
        E
They're better off without you
         Esus4             E
- They're better off without you -
Bm                    A
Arrogant boy, cause a scene like you're supposed to
        Gbm
They'll fall asleep without you
       D                       A
You're lucky if your memory remains

Chorus:
         A
Give me therapy
      E            Gbm
I'm a walking travesty
        D
But I'm smiling at everything

A                 E                 Gbm
Therapy, you were never a friend to me
            D
And you can take back your misery
A
Therapy
      E            Gbm
I'm a walking travesty
        D
But I'm smiling at everything
A                 E                 Gbm
Therapy, you were never a friend to me
            D
And you can choke on your misery.

Outro:
          A                  D             Gbm       E    D

  1. I like -2 the best. it’s easy to switch chords quickly and it’s all in the same area.

  2. what is the strumming pattern? I think for the 1st verse it’s good if you play DDUUDP but then makes no sense for the 2nd verse

  3. The hand picking was a little confusing for me bc the second fret on the g string sounds a lot like the open a string. Is it the same note or do I have a bad ear? Bc I think it would be easier to just play the open A. Also don’t judge me I just started learning ukulele.

  4. Great chords! Sounds great if you play it with another person!

  5. easiest on +3

  6. The chords are easier at -2 half steps. :)

  7. So your tab goes like this: 1st line, A (or 1st) string
    2nd line, E (2nd) string
    3rd line, C (3rd) string
    4th line, G (4th) string
    The little numbers along the lines that look like this |—5—| correspond to the fret numbers. So for that you would hold down the A string, fifth fret. If you see this: |—4h5—-| the little h means hold. So instead of plucking the 4 then 5′ you pluck the 4, slide quickly to the 5 while the note is still ringing, and the note changes without you having to pluck a second time. I hope this explains it ok, feel free to ask if you have anymore questions! :D

    • This really helped me thank you! I’m really new to the ukulele community so I didn’t know what the h meant

  8. i keep looking everywhere for something about how to understand tab and i cant figure this one out…….
