    B                    E
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Abm           Gb
Will you buy me a house of gold?

And when your father turns to stone,
     B        Gb       B
Will you take care of me?"

Verse:
      B             E
Let's say we up and left this town
     Abm               Gb

    this was such a big help! I am playing this for my talent show and I probably wouldn’t know it wothout ukutabs.com!✔️

  2. This song is so happy! However, in the original the first time the chorus is played it’s a C throughout.

  3. This is great

  4. Raul Ivan Paredes

    I love this song, just saw them last night in LA ^0^

  5. I love this song!!!

  6. anyone who has trouble playing Bbm can either substitute it with Bm or G works too.

  7. badwolf_91011

    I love this song soooo much!! Great for beginners and sounds great with just uke and voice. :)

  8. the first intro is just muted c then you repeat it and add the chords

  9. cutie girl23

    i absoulutly love this song i learned it and its awesome

  10. twenty-one-pilots-fan

    For the first chorus at the beginning, dampen the other strings besides the A string playing a c to get the sound in the song, I got to meet him when I won tickets on the radio and he said that’s how he plays it

  11. AccidentlyWalrused

    If you switch Bbm for Bm it sounds slightly nicer

  12. the starting chorus stays on C and it is only th one string, then 2nd chorus it goes through th changes

  13. for those interested the intro is simply a xxx3 chord strummed repeatedly. Love this song so much

  14. Just strum with triplets, sounds fine to me.

  15. Mary Claire
