E
My legs are dangling off the edge
B
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
Dbm
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
A
Gone, gone, gone, gone


E
My legs are dangling off the edge
B
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
Dbm
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
A
Gone, gone, gone, gone

E
Gone to far yea I'm gone again
B
It's gone on to long tell you how it ends
Dbm
I'm sitting on the edge with my two best friends
A
Ones a bottle of pills and ones a bottle of gin.

E
I'm twenty stories up, yea up at the top
B
I've polished off this bottle now it's pushin' me off
Dbm
Asphalt to me, has never looked so soft
A
I bet my momma found my letter, now she's calling the cops

E
I've gotta take this opportunity before I miss it
B
'Cause now I hear the sirens and there off in the distance
Dbm
Believe me when I tell you that I've been persistent
A
'Cause I'm more scarred, more scarred then my wrist is

E
I've been trying to long with too dull of a knife
B
But tonight I made sure, that I sharpened it twice
Dbm
I've never brought a suit before in my life
A
But when you go to meet god you know you wanna look nice

E          B          A         B      A
So if I survive then I'll see you tomorrow
B
Yea I'll see you tomorrow...

E
My legs are dangling off the edge
B
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
Dbm
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
A
Gone, gone, gone, gone


E
My legs are dangling off the edge
B
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
Dbm
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
A
Gone, gone, gone, gone

E
We hit the sky, there goes the light
B
No more sun, why's it always night
Dbm
When you can't sleep, well you can't dream
A
When you can't dream well, what's life mean?

E
We feel a little pity but don't empathize
B
The old are getting old, watch a young man die
Dbm
A mother and her son, and someone you know
A
Smiles at each other and realize you don't

E
You don't know what happened to that kid you raised
B
What happened to that father, who swore he'd stay
Dbm
I didn't know 'cause you didn't say
A
Now momma feels guilt, yea momma feels pain

E
When you were young, you never thought you'd die
B
Found that you could but too scared to try
Dbm
Looked in the mirror and you said goodbye
A
Climbed to the roof to see you if could fly

E          B          A         B      A
So if I survive then I'll see you tomorrow
B
Yea I'll see you tomorrow...

E
My legs are dangling off the edge
B
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
Dbm
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
A
Gone, gone, gone, gone


E
My legs are dangling off the edge
B
The bottom of a bottle is my only friend
Dbm
I think I'll slit my wrists again and I'm
A
Gone, gone, gone, gone

E
I wish that I could fly
B
Way up in the sky
Dbm
Like a bird so high
A
Oh I might just try

E
I wish that I could fly
B
Way up in the sky
Dbm
Like a bird so high
A
Oh I might just try
A                E
Oh I might just try

    the lyrics are a little off, during the second part of the chorus instead of “the bottom of the bottle is my only friend, i think ill slit my wrists again” having been repeated, it should be “a stomach full of pills didn’t work again, i’ll put a bullet in my head”

  2. In the outtro, if you play the chords at the end of the line, it sounds really cool.

  3. The lyrics are a little messed up with this. In the Chorus, instead of two “I think I’ll slit my wrists again.” The second one should be ” I put a bullet in my head” but this song is really fun to play.

  4. I repeat C, G, Am, F and D DU UDU twice on each chord for strumming pattern

  5. Warturtle147

    I kinda repeat the same chords and strumming pattern the entire song, C, G, Am, F with the pattern D DU UDU twice on each chord until the I’ll see you tomorrow part where i play C G once and Am F twice. I sing the song kind of for like a song rather than a rap.

  6. Mr. Madison

    I play -4 and I do single strums up until the “I wish that I could fly” part, where I strum down 3 times for each chord! However, it also sounds good as DUD instead of DDD!

    • Mr. Madison

      In that part, I also play the first C before I start singing, which makes playing the next G on ‘fly’ sounds a little nicer and is easier for my brain to process!

  7. Does anyone know what strumming pattern sounds best? I can’t seem to find one.

    • Tamara de Vries

      I use DDU UDU twice for every chord, and with the “So if I survive then I’ll see you tomorrow, yeah ill see you tomorrow” I use single downstrums :)

  8. I know this song is known as “the happiest sounding dark song” of all time, but DAMN does it sound beautiful slowed down and played alongside ukulele. Try singing it softly and play at -4, it’s really quite pretty. I just wouldn’t suggest playing/singing when family members are around. :)

  9. Harleymaybedead

    Second verse after the “bottom of the bottle” verse is “My legs are dangling off the edge/a stomach full of pills didn’t work again/I put a bullet in my head and I’m gone gone gone gone

  10. +1 sounds the most like the original song ,the only chord that people would find difficult would be Bb but other than that it’s quite easy and sounds good

  11. +3 for anyone was can’t sing too low :) it’s really comfortable and easier

  12. rockerwarriors

    Elise, remember, you’re using a ukulele for a song in which an acoustic guitar is used. Of course it wouldn’t sound right.

  13. Tried these chords, and they don’t sound right… At all.

  14. Hi. Just wanted to say, I believe the second part of the chorus goes:
    “My legs are dangling off the edge
    A stomach full of pills didn’t work again
    I put a bullet in my head and I’m
    gone, gone, gone, gone.”
    :) Sorry to correct, just wanted to point that out. c:
