C 		 F
I don't know my name
Am 		     G
I don't play by the rules of the game
       C 	     F
So you say I'm just trying
     Am G
Just trying


     C        	       F
So I heard you are my sister's friend
    Am              G
You get along quite nicely
    C            F
You ask me why I cut my hair
    Am                 G
And changed myself completely

F        G
I am lost
Am                 G
Trying to get found
               F
In an ocean of people

Please don’t ask me any


C 		 F
I don't know my name
Am 		     G
I don't play by the rules of the game
       C 	     F
So you say I'm just trying
     Am G
Just trying


C             F
I now know my name!
Am                  G
I don't play by the rules of the game
       C           F
So you say I’m not trying
        Am G
But I’m trying
                C
To find my way

  1. There is a video on YouTube of grace doing a tutorial of this song and she used the strumming pattern: D-D U-U D-U

  2. this is way too cool……Actually this is the best ukulele song with a chords. Some of the people were asking that how many beats are there…. and its (up, down, up, down, down, up).

  3. Jeffree_Star

  4. The strumming pattern is D DUDUDU

  5. MCR Will Save Your Life (I Promise)

    I got it first try because I already know all those cords and I am starting to move to harder more advanced but when I first got my Uke it took me about a week and a half to be able to play songs and learn chords and this website really helps.

  8. Fida Maryam

    Amazing!!! This was my first song and everybody loved it!!👌🏻

  9. luke cliett

    where is the time signature or how many beats per measure?

    • with ukulele its more of a freestyle as far as that stuff goes, just because its made for riffs and stuff like that

  10. how long will it take to learn

  11. If u remember the chords pattern ( which is C,F,A,G) u can just go to a lyric website to get the right ones

  12. What strumming pattern do you use for this??

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
