Intro: B

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

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

Chorus:
      E
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Abm Abm9 Abm Abm9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
E
He wants me to smile
                           Abm Abm9 Abm Abm9
And clap like a performing seal
Gb
Ignored it for a while
                              Db
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    E                 Gb                 B
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: E

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

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

Chorus:
                          Gm9 Gm Gm9 Gm
Take me where my soul can run
   Eb
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Gm9 Gm Gm9 Gm
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
F
Daddy's moving forward
                    C
Daddy didn't lose a mom

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

There’s a great tutorial on YouTube by Liana Flores where she teaches this song and the strumming pattern and all that. Helps a lot

Uke kid

if ur using 0 replace the Fm with F and the Ab with Bb and it sounds 1000x better

For the last verse (on 0) you can use Bb instead of all the Ab’s except the last one and it sounds better imo.
