Chorus:
    D                    G
She asked me, "Son, when I grow old,
     Bm           A
Will you buy me a house of gold?
    D                G
And when your father turns to stone,
     D        A       D
Will you take care of me?"

Em       Cm            G

I'll cure you of disease

Verse:
      D             G
Let's say we up and left this town
     Bm               A
And turned our future upside-down

We'll make pretend that you and me

Lived ever after, happily

Verse:
    D                  G
And since we know that dreams are dead
    Bm                  A
And life turns plans up on their head

So I just might become someone

    love this song cant stop playing it and now my friend rlly loves me for learning it

  2. That bm is hard

  3. sophiachase13

    I absolutely love this song! The only thing is the very first part of the song, (which happens to be the chorus) stays on a C chord. The way its played in the song is really pretty so, the way that they do the C is they mute every string in the C chord except the A string. Anyway you should try it because it sounds amazing!

  17. I love this song

  18. If I were to solo on the ukelele, which chord would I solo over?
    And also for the intro, do I dampen the first fret of the G C and E strings along with dampening the c note on the A string?

    I love this song so much, i can’t wait to learn it! Whenever I play the ukulele people give me a funny look but this song is actually meant for one!

    At the chorus, instead of playing A7 and Dm, play Am and then A7, it sound sooooo much better. First song i learned.
