Verse:
                Am
We talked about making it
          Em
I'm sorry that you never made it
       C                                Dm
And it pains me just to hear you have to say it
                      Am                               Em
You knew the game and played it, it kills to know that you have been defeated
          C                          Dm
I see the wires pulling while you're breathing
                   Am
You knew you had a reason
                   Em
It killed you like diseases
                  C                          Dm
And I can hear it in your voice while you're speaking you can't be treated
Am                      Em
Mr. know it all had his reign and fall
   C                                     Dm
At least that's what his brain is telling all

Chorus:
                            Am         Em
If he said help me kill the president
                 C          Dm
I'd say he needs medicine
                  Am          Em
Sick of screaming let us in
                  Dm
The wires got the best of him
                        Am
All that he invested in goes

Post-Chorus -x2-:
            Em
Straight to hell
            C       
Straight to hell
Dm          Am
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
            Em
Straight to hell
            C   
Straight to hell
Dm
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Verse:
                         Am
He told me I should take it in
          Em
Listen to every word he's speaking
    C                         Dm
The wires getting older I can hear the way they're creaking
           Am
As they're holding him
             Em
Well I could see it in his jaw
     C                         Dm
That all he ever wanted was a job
                  Am
He tells me to be raw
          Em
Admits to every little flaw
     C                          Dm
That never let him sit upon the top
                 Am
Won't tell me to stop
                     Em
Thinks that I should be a little cautious
C                    Dm
I can tell the wires pulled

Chorus:
                            Am            Em
If he said help me kill the president
                 C           Dm
I'd say he needs medicine
                  Am         Em
Sick of screaming let us in
                  Dm
The wires got the best of him
                        Am
All that he invested in goes

Post-Chorus:
            Em
Straight to hell
            C     
Straight to hell
Dm          Am
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
            Em
Straight to hell
            C      
Straight to hell
Dm
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Verse:
                      Am
I'm having trouble in believing
                   Em
And I just started seeing
                C             Dm            Am
Light at the beginning of the tunnel but he tells me that I'm dreaming
        Em                            C
When he talks I hear his ghosts every word they say to me
       Am                            Dm
I just pray the wires aren't coming

Chorus:
                            Am          Em
If he said help me kill the president
                 C           Dm
I'd say he needs medicine
                  Am          Em
Sick of screaming let us in
                  Dm
The wires got the best of him
                        Am
All that he invested in goes

Post-Chorus:
            Em
Straight to hell
            C    
Straight to hell
Dm          Am
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
            Em
Straight to hell
            C        
Straight to hell
Dm
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

  1. It was easier for me to do F instead of Dm

  2. Does anybody possibly know the intro for this song? I can’t figure it out

  3. It sounds better if you replace the Em with an E7

  4. sadbutrad_04

    I love this song ughhh

  5. I play the C as G, the Dm as Fm and it sounds so much better and softer on the uke.

  6. The Awkward Mexasian

    Very nice an octave higher for vocals

  7. Ayyy I requested this

  8. Thank you! Thank you!

  9. To make the song sound a little better I switched the “C” cord to a “G” cord. It sound a lot softer when you take it slow, I’m really pleased with how the song turned out.
