Intro -x2-: F Dm Am -2x-

F                          Dm                        Am
I wish I found some better sounds no one’s ever heard,
                           Am
I wish I had a better voice that sang some better words,
F                          Dm                        Am
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new,
                           Am
I wish I didn't have to rhyme every time I sang,
F                          Dm                        Am
I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink,
                           Am
But now I’m insecure and I care what people think.


          F              Dm              Am              Am         
My name's Blurryface and I care what you think.
          F              Dm              Am              Am 
My name's Blurryface and I care what you think.


F             Em            Am        Em
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am            G             C         E            
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.


F Dm Am
        We're stressed out.
F Dm Am


Am                         G
Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young,
Dm                         C
How come I’m never able to identify where it’s coming from,
Am                          G
I’d make a candle out of it if I ever found it,
       Dm                                          C
Try to sell it, never sell out of it, I’d probably only sell one,


Am                               G
It’d be to my brother, ‘cause we have the same nose,
     Dm                          C
Same clothes homegrown a stone’s throw from a creek we used to roam,
F                               Dm
But it would remind us of when nothing really mattered,
       Am                                   Am
Out of student loans and treehouse homes we all would take the latter.


                F              Dm              Am              Am         
My-My-My name's Blurryface and I care what you think.
          F              Dm              Am              Am 
My name's Blurryface and I care what you think.


F             Em            Am        Em
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am            G             C         E            
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.


   Am                              G
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
         C                                 E
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away,
        Am                                   G
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
        C                          E
Saying, "wake up, you need to make money."
Yeah.


   Am                              G
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
         C                                 E
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away,
        Am                                   G
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
        C                          E
Saying, "wake up, you need to make money."
Yeah.


Dm            C             Am       Em  
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C                E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am            G             C        E
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C                E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.


F                             Dm                    
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, honey
   Am                         Am
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money
F                             Dm
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, honey
   Am                         Am
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money
F                                  Dm
Used to play pretend, give each other different names,
         Am                                Am
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away,
         F                                   Dm
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
         Am                        Am
Saying, "wake up, you need to make money."
Yeah.

  1. I only strum on the chorois and just do a single strum on the other chords. My preffered strumming pattern is DDU UDU

  2. I found that with the first F, if you play it once, then move your index finger to the fourth string on the first fret, then off again, that sounds good. And then with the Am you can play it the same but put your pinkie on the fourth string of the third fret, and that sounds like how Tyler plays it. I hope that makes sense and helps!

  3. Cool….

  4. Amanda cesilie

    changed the E to a G, sounds better to me

  5. TYLERSTACOBELL

    sick.

  6. Hey, I found that sliding your finger down to the third fret on the A chord is what Tyler does to get the higher pitch :)

  7. #BeAStrangeHooman

    I like E7 better, and can people stop shouting over this app about why someone else’s opinion isn’t okay.
    Thanks

  8. Whispering_alpaca

    The E chord sounds off to me.

  9. Whispering_alpaca

    The E chord sounds off to me

  10. blueukulele01

    Strumming pattern:
    Intro : single down strums
    Rest of song: DD UDU (twice on A cord only)

    So,I recommend going to YouTube and searching up stressed out ukulele because Tyler does really good and makes his uke-playing very interesting so yeah.
