Intro: Gb

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

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

Chorus:
      B
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Ebm Ebm9 Ebm Ebm9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
B
He wants me to smile
                           Ebm Ebm9 Ebm Ebm9
And clap like a performing seal
Db
Ignored it for a while
                              Ab
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    B                 Db                 Gb
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: B

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

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

Chorus:
                          Dm9 Dm Dm9 Dm
Take me where my soul can run
   Bb
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Dm9 Dm Dm9 Dm
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
C
Daddy's moving forward
                    G
Daddy didn't lose a mom

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