Intro: Db

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

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

Chorus:
      Gb
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Bbm Bbm9 Bbm Bbm9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
Gb
He wants me to smile
                           Bbm Bbm9 Bbm Bbm9
And clap like a performing seal
Ab
Ignored it for a while
                              Eb
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    Gb                 Ab                 Db
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: Gb

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

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

Chorus:
                          Am9 Am Am9 Am
Take me where my soul can run
   F
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Am9 Am Am9 Am
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
G
Daddy's moving forward
                    D
Daddy didn't lose a mom

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

-2 is easier

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

eatmytoes

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

-4 is easiest

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.
