Bm          D            A
I'm waking up to ash and dust
          E                    Bm
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
             D               A    E
I'm breathing in the chemicals
Bm          D            A                 E
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
Bm        D              A    
This is it, the apocalypse
A
Whoa


E              Bm             D
   I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
A                  E
Enough to make my systems grow
Bm                     D
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
A                      E
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Bm   D     A                E
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Bm   D     A                E
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive


Bm           D            A
I raise my flags, don my clothes
          E                    Bm
It's a revolution, I suppose
              D                  A
We're painted red to fit right in
A
Whoa
Bm          D            A                 E
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
Bm        D              A    
This is it, the apocalypse
A
Whoa


E              Bm             D
   I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
A                  E
Enough to make my systems grow
Bm                     D
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
A                      E
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Bm   D     A                E
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Bm   D     A                E
Whoa, whoa, I'm radioactive, radioactive


-* = one strum-

All systems go, sun hasn't died

Deep in my bones, straight from inside


E              Bm             D
   I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
A                  E
Enough to make my systems grow
Bm                     D
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
A                      E
Welcome to the new age, to the new age

  1. eye patch

    strumming patterns?

  2. DEMI LOVATO

    i think your wrong !!!!!!!!!!

  3. UkuPlayerMadds

    -2 is easier. With the one strum part, though, do it Am C G D instead of the original Bm D A E

  4. I also used dddu

  5. -2 was easier for me.Except d,my hand can’ bend over it

  6. KingSolomon36O

    Bridge chords should be Am, G, G, D if you transpose at -2.

  7. it should be, “systems blow”

  8. Soprano_uku_gal

    So if you are doing single down strums (like me) on the Whoa do an up strum, in my opinion, it sounds more like the original recording. IDK thought I’d share.

  9. Are you sure the lyrics are right they sound funny to me =/ ‘_’

  10. -2 for “normal” pitched voices. sounds nice and very much like the original
    +3 for higher pitches. Sounds amazing but not so much like original

  11. play on -2 its the easiest with ddddu as strum pattern

  12. tune the uke a half step down so the strings are f#,B,E(flat),a(flat) and the play it with the chords of minus 2 it is so cool! and easy to play

  13. Dyenamicrat724

    One of the best songs ever

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.
