Intro: Em C G D

Verse:
Em       C               G                D    
Another head hangs lowly child is slowly taken 
Em               C                   G               D    
And the violence caused such silence who are we mistaken 
        Em                        C 
But you see it's not me, it's not my family,  
        G                               D    
In your head, in your head, they are fighting 
           Em              C             G                            D    
With their tanks and their bombs in your head, in your head, the are crying. 


Chorus:
        Em            C            G             D    
In your head, in your head, zombie, zombie, zombie 
               Em            C            G             D    
What's in your head, in your head, zombie, zombie, zombie 


Verse:
Em        C                  G              D    
Anothers mother's breaking, heart is taking over. 
Em                C               G            D    
When the violence caused silence, we must be mistaken. 
         Em                   C  
It's the same old theme since 1916, 
        G                                  D    
in your head, in your head, they're still fighting 
           Em                              C  
With their tanks and their bombs en' their guns, 
        G                            D    
In your head, in your head, they're dying. 


Chorus:
        Em            C            G             D    
In your head, in your head, zombie, zombie, zombie 
               Em            C            G             D    
What's in your head, in your head, zombie, zombie, zombie

  2. Burdisso

    This song is just AWESOME!!!

  3. Chicken Little

    the strumming pattern that I use is DDU UD (island strun without the last up)

  4. Maddison

    I found that strumming pattern was quite difficult, but I do not have a specific strumming pattern throughout the song. I personally use DUD and DDUDD, those are the easiest substitutes I have.

    I’m in a ukulele group of three, and my music teacher told me to pick songs. I asked her what songs we were playing, and she said: Riptide by Vance Joy, Zombie by the Cranberries, Good Riddance by Green Day, and She’s out of her Mind by blink-182. I didn’t know Zombie at first, so I looked it up, and instantly fell in love with it. So awesome!

  6. Taylor Swift

    This song seems short….

  7. I actually prefer the DDDDUDUDDDU strumming pattern

  8. anyone have a easy stumming pattern for this song ?
