Intro: A

Verse 1:
              Dbm
Hey Mom, Dead Mom
  Gbm           D
I need a little help here
            A            E
I'm prob'ly talking to myself here
         G           D
But Dead Mom I gotta ask
        Gbm           D
Are you really in the ground?
        Gbm           D
Cause I feel you all around me
        A            E
Are you here, Dead Mom?
     D
Dead Mom

Verse 2:
     A
Dead Mom
    Dbm                Gbm         D
I'm tired of trying to iron out my creases
      A               E
I'm a bunch of broken pieces
       G               D
It was you who made me whole
      Gbm               D
Every day Dad's staring at me
          Gbm          D
Like all "hurry up get happy
     A
Move along
-nc-              D
Forget about your mom"

Chorus:
      D
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Gbm Gbm9 Gbm Gbm9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
D
He wants me to smile
                           Gbm Gbm9 Gbm Gbm9
And clap like a performing seal
E
Ignored it for a while
                              B
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    D                 E                 A
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: D

          Em
You're my home
        D
My destination
             C
And I'm your clone
             Am
Your strange creation
            Em
You held my hand
              D
And life came easy
                C
Now jokes don't land
           Am
And no one sees me
                 Em
Nothing seems to fit
              D
Mamma is this it?

Are you receiving?
                    Eb
I want something to believe in
       Db
Or I'm done

Chorus:
                          Fm9 Fm Fm9 Fm
Take me where my soul can run
   Db
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Fm9 Fm Fm9 Fm
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
Eb
Daddy's moving forward
                    Bb
Daddy didn't lose a mom

Db              Eb
Mamma won't you send a sign?
Fm                 Ab
I'm running out of hope and time
Db                  Eb
A plague of mice, a lightning strike
Fm                Bb
Or drop a nuclear bomb
Db              Eb
No more playing Daddy's game
     Fm   Eb      Ab
I'll go insane if things don't change
            Db                Eb
Whatever it takes to make him say your name
Ab
Dead Mom

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.
