Intro: C

Verse 1:
              Em
Hey Mom, Dead Mom
  Am           F
I need a little help here
            C            G
I'm prob'ly talking to myself here
         Bb           F
But Dead Mom I gotta ask
        Am           F
Are you really in the ground?
        Am           F
Cause I feel you all around me
        C            G
Are you here, Dead Mom?
     F
Dead Mom

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

Chorus:
      F
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Am Am9 Am Am9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
F
He wants me to smile
                           Am Am9 Am Am9
And clap like a performing seal
G
Ignored it for a while
                              D
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    F                 G                 C
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: F

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

Are you receiving?
                    Gb
I want something to believe in
       E
Or I'm done

Chorus:
                          Abm9 Abm Abm9 Abm
Take me where my soul can run
   E
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Abm9 Abm Abm9 Abm
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
Gb
Daddy's moving forward
                    Db
Daddy didn't lose a mom

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

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.
