Eb         Bb                       Cm
Turn away, if you could get me a drink of water
       Ab
Cuz my lips are chapped and faded

Help her gather all my things
               Ab

My sisters and my brothers

Cuz all my hair's abandoned all my body
      Eb     
Oh my agony
Bb                      Cm
Know that I will never marry
              Ab

I'm counting down the days to go

  1. Skeleton Clique

    GUYS LISTEN UP
    If you do -2 on almost any song and put a capo on the second fret it will sound just like 0 without a capo.

  2. what is the easyest one.

  3. Its soo awesome its cool IIIII lovee it

  4. Pomegranate Jones

    I just found out that (if you switch to -2 like I did) when you get to the “This just ain’t livin'”part, you can just play G Em Am. It sounds very good and is much easier than having to switch between the E and Em. :)

  5. excuse me could you please leave

    i love twenty one pilots, but they did NOT write this song MCR did, and it angers me to see someone put this as by Twenty One Pilots.

    • NO TRESSPASSING

      Well its because its different than the original version by MCR. different chorus, beat, and artist quality.

    • calm yourself

      its a cover and its beautiful calm down

    • While MCR did write the original song, the Twenty One Pilots cover did make a few changes, and some people like it better than the original. This is the Twenty One Pilots version of the song, and is credited correctly. As I understand it, they do have the original under My Chemical Romance.

  6. None of your buisness

    Transpose to -2 and put a capo on 2nd fret. Sounds just like the song.

  7. -2 is easy and sounds the best. and to all the mcr fans, their version is on the site as well, as top’s cover isn’t just a cover, it’s a different version. :)

  8. Trace Tuttle

    I was messing around trying to find my own chords, i found that D, A, Bm and G work for the first two times.

  9. sad that this version is getting more attention, its a cover):

    • so true so true meltdown

    • they are both great songs so its not bad that ones getting more attention than the other, its just important that the original artist (My Chemical Romance in this case) gets the proper credit

    • I think its just because Twenty One Pilots has had two more recent songs on the radio. Not to throw shade at MCR but i dont think they have recently been on the top 40 radio.its really sad :-(

    • I think the difference is Tyler sings like he’s given up. He sings with sadness. Gerard sings with anger. Like he’s still fighting. Both are beautiful they’re just different

      • interesting point, id say its more passion than anger, Gerard always enacts the fight and how exhilarating it is but tyler is expressing the struggle and how that feels, rly well

  10. Ah yes I’ve been waiting for this

  11. tylerjosephandthedunflowers

    YES YES YES BEAUTIFUL I LOVE IT 10/10 AMAZING

  12. brendonsbagels

    I swear I ain’t cryin

  13. this isn’t the right key and none of the transposes have the right one :/

    • Try going to the actual song, the one that’s labelled as by MCR.

    • Not to be rude but this song is depressing and sad it’s not supposed to be played on the happy joyful ukulele again great song love all my fellow ukutabs users just wanted to post this.

      • Ukulele isn’t always happy. You just have to learn how to play it right to get all those different emotions it can sound, because while happy is the most prominent and easiest to play, you can definitely make it sound whichever way you want with enough practice and skill!

      • then why are you even on the tab

      • leave bro

  14. Also, 5+ is the same as My Chemical Romance’s original. And I don’t mean to criticize, it is a great song, but My Chemical Romance has the better version and more lyrics. *GREAT SONG*

  15. +3 is easy and sounds the best

  16. they got a few lyrics wrong and for me the original key is easiest for me besides the E that you don’t really need

  17. Woah, you guys have this already? By the way My Chemical Romance made this, this is actually a cover.

  18. arleigha_rose

    -2 is also easy :)

  19. YASsssSSsSSSS

  20. Transpose to +5 for easier cords :)
