Verse:
Db         Ab                       Bbm
Turn away, if you could get me a drink of water
       Gb
Cuz my lips are chapped and faded
        Db
Call my Aunt Marie
Ab                      Bbm
Help her gather all my things
               Gb
And bury me in all my favourite colours
   Gb             Gbm                 
My sisters and my brothers

Turn away, cuz I'm awful just to see
                   Gb
Cuz all my hair's abandoned all my body
      Db     
Oh my agony
Ab                      Bbm
Know that I will never marry
              Gb

I'm counting down the days to go

Ab   Fm   F   Bbm
This just ain't livin'

  3. +5 ??

  4. cheezwhizbandito

    +5 is easy and much better for deeper voices :)

  5. thefakepetewentz

    compared to the original, this is like a 4 y.o. recreation of the mona lisa. i love tyler and josh, but this is bad

    • then why did you come all the way on a ukulele page just to say that its a 4-year-old version of the mona lisa? I personally think they are both amazing in their own ways. Personally, most of the times I hear a song and hear another verson I like the one i heard first better. It happens to a lot of my friends too so idk but

  6. when it goes If you say goodbye today I’ll ask you to be true (in +5) swap the Em and the Cm around it sounds a lot nicer
