Intro: Ab

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

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

Chorus:
      Db
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Fm Fm9 Fm Fm9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
Db
He wants me to smile
                           Fm Fm9 Fm Fm9
And clap like a performing seal
Eb
Ignored it for a while
                              Bb
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    Db                 Eb                 Ab
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: Db

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

Are you receiving?
                    D
I want something to believe in
       C
Or I'm done

Chorus:
                          Em9 Em Em9 Em
Take me where my soul can run
   C
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Em9 Em Em9 Em
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
D
Daddy's moving forward
                    A
Daddy didn't lose a mom

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