Intro: Eb

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

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

Chorus:
      Ab
Cause Daddy's in denial
                    Cm Cm9 Cm Cm9
Daddy doesn't wanna feel
Ab
He wants me to smile
                           Cm Cm9 Cm Cm9
And clap like a performing seal
Bb
Ignored it for a while
                              F
But Daddy's lost his mind for real
    Ab                 Bb                 Eb
You won't believe the mess that we've become

Bridge: Ab

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

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

Chorus:
                          Bm9 Bm Bm9 Bm
Take me where my soul can run
   G
Or I'll be in my bedroom
                        Bm9 Bm Bm9 Bm
Wake me when I'm twenty-one
A
Daddy's moving forward
                    E
Daddy didn't lose a mom

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