Chorus:
 C                  Am                E
 All my friends are heathens, take it slow
 C                Am              E
 Wait for them to ask you who you know
        C           Am        E
 Please don't make any sudden moves
     C              Am           E
 You don't know the half of the abused
 C                  Am                E
 All my friends are heathens, take it slow
 C                Am              E
 Wait for them to ask you who you know
        C           Am        E
 Please don't make any sudden moves
     C              Am           E
 You don't know the half of the abused

Verse:
Am
 Welcome to the room of people
                                    Em
 Who have rooms of people that they loved one day, docked away
Am
 Just because we check the guns at the door
                  Em
 Doesn't mean our brains will change from hand grenades
Am                                             Em
 You never know the psychopath sitting next to you
                                             Am
 You never know the murderer sitting next to you
                                                 B
 You'll think, "How'd I get here sitting next to you?"
B                         -no chord-
 And after all I've said, please don't forget

Chorus:
 C                  Am                E
 All my friends are heathens, take it slow
 C                Am              E
 Wait for them to ask you who you know
        C           Am        E
 Please don't make any sudden moves
     C              Am           E
 You don't know the half of the abused

Verse:
Am
 We don't deal with outsiders very well
Em
 They say newcomers have a certain smell
Am
 You have trust issues, not to mention
Em
 They say they can smell your intentions
Am                                            Em
 You never know the freakshow sitting next to you 
                                            Am
 You have some weird people sitting next to you
                                                  B
 You'll think, "How'd I get here sitting next to you?"
B                         -no chord-
 But after all I've said, please don't forget -Watch it-

Interlude -x2-: C Am E E

Chorus:
 C                  Am                E
 All my friends are heathens, take it slow
 C                Am              E
 Wait for them to ask you who you know
        C           Am        E
 Please don't make any sudden moves
     C              Am           E
 You don't know the half of the abused

Bridge:
 C                  Am                Em
 All my friends are heathens, take it slow -watch it-
 C                Am              Em
 Wait for them to ask you who you know -watch it-
 C                  Am                Em
 All my friends are heathens, take it slow -watch it-
 C                Am              Em
 Wait for them to ask you who you know -watch it-

Outro:
 C                   Am                   E
 Why'd you come, you knew you should have stayed
   C                 Am            E
 I tried to warn you just to stay away
     C              Am            E
 And now they're outside ready to bust
    C              Am              E
 It looks like you might be one of us

  2. TheContrabandCap

    Hey does anyone know of a note i can use instead of b that is easier to play and sounds almost the same? Plz and thx! My lil bro loves this song an im still trying to play the song without hesitating at the b lol.

  3. the easiest version is anyways if u just play c , am, em through out the whole song

  4. Pros eat waffles

    icantplaythissong

  5. Strumming pattern is DDU UDU two times for each chord

  6. -5 is the actual key of the song in my opinion

  7. TheHiatusWillNeverEnd

    You can use Em instead of e it’s a lot easier :)) I want the hiatus to end plz help me survive this

  8. For E I recommend E7. E doesn’t sound right to me. :/

  9. +5 is easier to me.

  11. R.O.S.A.2.1

    Ok… I know I already left a comment but version -2 is WAY easier to play just letting u guys know.. If anyone is intrested…

  12. R.O.S.A.2.1

    This is my first time leaving a comment but, is there another version to play this?

  13. I can’t remember the last time I actually listened to this wow this was the first twenty one pilots song I ever heard and look where I am now, I’m obsessed with them.

  14. What does watch it mean?

  15. sarcasticUkulele48

    E7 works perfectly for E and its just a lot easier

  16. TwentyOnePanicStans

    I hate when people make fun of my soprano uke when I play songs like this & then they say “I could easily learn an instrument” like okay I can multiple instruments, read music, I’ve performed in front of multiple judges… It’s not ab what kind of instrument you play or which level you’re at. Be proud of even trying to learn. Stay alive frens

  17. CharlieThatAwkwardThing

    i have such small hands, i can’t play the E, and I have a soprano ukulele :/
