Intro: Gb B Ebm B

Gb
Stuck in the jet wash
      B
Bad trip I couldn't get off
            Ebm
And maybe I bit off more than I could chew
        B
And overhead of the aqua blue


               Gb
Fall to your knees bring on the rapture
                B
Blessed be the boys time can't capture
     Ebm
On film or between the sheets
                         B
I always fall from your window to the pitch black streets


              B
And with the black banners raised
        Ebm
As the crooked smiles fade
B                  Ebm
Former heroes who quit too late
B                       Ebm         Db
Just wanna fill up the trophy case again

Chorus:
            Gb                  B
And in the end, I'd do it all again
                         Ebm
I think you're my best friend
                         B
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright
         Gb                      B
I'll be yours, when it rains it pours
                     Ebm
Stay thirsty I'll be fine
                         B
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright


          Gb
I'm not passive but aggressive
       B
Take note, it's not impressive
            Ebm
Empty your sadness like you're dumping your purse
                B
On my bedroom floor, we put your curse in reVerse


          Gb
And it's our time now if you want to to be
          B
More the war like the carnival bears set free
         Ebm
And your love is anemic and I can't believe
      B
That you couldn't see it coming from me


    B                 Ebm
And I still feel that rush in my veins
    B                     Ebm
It twists my head just a bit too thin
            B                       Ebm                  Db
All those people in those old photographs I've seen are dead

Chorus:
            Gb                  B
And in the end, I'd do it all again
                         Ebm
I think you're my best friend
                         B
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright
         Gb                      B
I'll be yours, when it rains it pours
                     Ebm
Stay thirsty I'll be fine
                         B
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright


         Ebm                      Gb                      B
And sometimes I just want to sit around, and gaze at my shoes yeah
                     Ebm           Gb                 B
And let your dirty sadness fill me up, just like a balloon

Chorus:
            Gb                  B
And in the end, I'd do it all again
                         Ebm
I think you're my best friend
                         B
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright
         Gb                      B
I'll be yours, when it rains it pours
                     Ebm
Stay thirsty I'll be fine
                         B
Don't you know that the kids aren't all, kids aren't alright

    @CSProfoundDino try using the stumming pattern:

    DD UUDU UDU UDU (not fast but quickly)

  3. CSProfoundDino

    Does someone know the proper strum pattern? I use DD UUDU and it works fine, but it doesn’t sound completely right.

  4. Skeleton Clique

    my vocal chords are ripped but i enjoyed playing it anyway lmao

  5. dangounchained

    Hey just letting you guys know that it’s “Stay thirsty like before” not “Stay thirsty I’ll be fine.” (:

  6. UkeTillYouPuke

    Really easy alternative: capo the first fret, and play Bb, C, Dm, and F.

    For instance, the chorus will be:
    F Bb
    And in the end, I’d do it all again
    Dm
    I think you’re my best friend
    Bb
    Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright
    F Bb
    I’ll be yours, when it rains it pours
    Dm
    Stay thirsty I’ll be fine
    Bb
    Don’t you know that the kids aren’t all, kids aren’t alright

  7. crystalpilots

    I think it sounds best at +1 with a capo on the first fret

  8. mathiuslee

    -4

  9. -6 is easier to sing along to and play

  10. PatrickWentz

    Love this song! but much better at +1

  11. much easier at +1

  12. ukulelepunks

    for an easier version put a capo on the first fret and Bb C Dm F instead of B Db Ebm Gb

  13. panicathephan

    I used it 4 half steps down, it’s much easier like that. Also in the chorus, the lyrics are “I’m yours, when it rains it pours, stay thirsty like before”

  14. stringsqueen

    lyrics in the second verse are “Maul the world like carnival bear set free”

    these are great! thanks :D

  15. ceilingfansandidlehands

    If you’re going up a step, I like to end on G.

  16. lizzie1218

    Down a half step is much easier.

  17. sydneysface

    Go up +1 and it is much easier to play and to sing!

  18. Becca_Lipz

    Thanks so much! Been waiting for more ABAP arrangements!

  19. Shinanemone

    The correct lyrics are “And I’ll be yours.
    When it rains it pours.
    Stay thirsty like before.”, thank you for the chords :)
