AmAm chord                               FF chord 
 When the leader of the bad guys sang
CC chord                             DmDm chord
 Something soft and soaked in pain
AmAm chord                                FF chord   CC chord   
 I heard the echo from his secret hideaway
AmAm chord                              FF chord
 He must've forgot to close his door
CC chord                               DmDm chord
 As he cranked out those dismal chords
AmAm chord                           FF chord     CC chord
 And his four walls declared him insane
 
 
  EmEm chord
I found my way
      BB chord
Right time wrong place
     DmDm chord      GG chord
As I pled my case

 AmAm chord               
 Three lights are lit
                      FF chord 
 But the fourth one's out
       CC chord
 I can tell cause it's a bit darker
                       DmDm chord
 Than the last night's bout
      AmAm chord 
 I forgot about the drought
                        FF chord
 Of light bulbs in this house
           CC chord
 So I head out
                           
 Down a route I think is heading south
             AmAm chord
 But I'm not good with directions
                      FF chord
 And I hide behind my mouth
       CC chord
 I'm a pro at imperfections
                              DmDm chord
 And I'm best friends with my doubt
AmAm chord
 And now that my mind's out
                             FF chord
 And now I hear it clear and loud
                CC chord
 I'm thinking, "Wow
 
 I probably should've stayed inside my house."
 
 
   EmEm chord
 I found my way
       BB chord
 Right time wrong place
      DmDm chord       GG chord
 As I pled my case

    Two words. JOSH. DUN.

  • Jacqui says:

    I love this song |-/

  • natalieeaae says:

    I may or may not have yelled “Josh Dun”

  • BLE says:

    What’s the strum pattern?

  • Ukeukeuke says:

    This song is amazing

  • Clara Sorensen says:

    The strum pattern is D DU UDU UDUDUDU.
    Switch from AM (or C) to F (or Dm) at the second up on the last part.

  • KatieF13 says:

    The B chord is really hard for me. Does anyone have any tips for playing it, or anything I can replace it with?

    • AddictImAPan says:

      I know you’ve probably figured it out by now but I think of it as a Em but to the side with you finger pressed down a little more

  • melissa925 says:

    *wakes up entire house because “JOS(HUA WILLIAM) DUN!!!!!!!!!”*
    good song too

  • realukeplayer says:

    1. This comment thread is super cringey and makes me want to barf

    2. @JOSHUADUN, I have no idea how you could possibly think that an A7 sounds better than Am in this song. The original song uses Am and changing it to A7 completely changes the entire feel of the song, and doesn’t sound right with the transition to F.

    3. @mdw2402, just like I told the last guy, you can’t just go and completely change a chord in the song. It sounds nothing like the original. I tried it out with your suggested change of BM to Bm, and it sounds awful. Nothing like the original. IDK what you’re smoking

    4. NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE PART WHERE HE SCREAMS “JOSH DUN”!!! IT DOESN’T MATTER!

    • stayalive says:

      do u need a hug man

    • tylerrjoseph says:

      ppl can have their opinions on what they think sounds good, take a chill pill?

    • The Longer that a FOB title says:

      True fans care. They care because it’s the little things in the songs that could make their entire day so much better. Those little things in the song which make the song how it is. If it makes people smile, why say “who cares?” When really, they care.

      If you don’t care about it, then okay. We respect that. But just because your view is different to other people’s, it doesn’t mean you should say stuff like that.

    • Fairly Automatic says:

      @realukeplayer

      Actually we all do care when he screams “Josh Dun!” Why would we wright about it if we
      didn’t care? (Like honestly it’s the cutest thing ever) And honestly what’s wrong with you? he didn’t command you and 100% guarantee you that changing BM to Bm or Am to A7 will sound amazing it’s just an innocent suggestion! Like please take a chill pill

    • twentyone says:

      if you got really triggered, first, nobody told you to go through the comments, and second, NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR OPINION IT DOESN’T MATTER!

    • Joshler says:

      well dang

    • Baydo says:

      1. Well, you don’t have to read it, then

      2. People can have there own opinions, you don’t have to get so worked up

      3. Same thing here, some people think different things sound better than others

      4. Everybody cares! It’s the best part of the song! And if you don’t like it, then stop forcing your anger out on fellow members of the Clique!

    • Srsly says:

      JOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSHDUUUUUUUUNwantsyoutorespectpeople’sopinionsandiftheyarenotaffectingyoupersonallyyoucangosomewhereelseokthanksbye

  • brynn says:

    Does anyone know the strum pattern for this?

  • ItsCalledUkuleleScreamo says:

    This is the first song I ever learned to play on the uke <3

  • |-/ says:

    Super easy and a best song ever!!!!!!!
    I use A instead of A7

  • Tøp fan says:

    Whata the strumminh pattern?

  • UKE girl says:

    IDK
    I have no idea where and when he shouts JOSH DUN

  • hankatnic says:

    @|-/ and @Tøp fan what i do is i find a rhythm like the beat of the syllables, or of the song. I strum to that rhythm and it usually works. Also play around with it, and you’ll figure it out eventually. All I say is to not give up

  • denisse says:

    @realukeplayer chill

  • CRS says:

    For the intro I just switch between C and F. It sounds just fine. I just listened to the recording and played along with it and it sounded great

  • problematiclmap says:

    Is it okay to play a D chord instead of Dm? I’m a beginner and I can’t really play Dm correctly without stopping the entire song.

    • elema says:

      Yeah, it’s hard for me, too. Just keep practicing; until you get it, you can replace it with the chord before it and it sounds fine.

  • Malique says:

    You should make an app for the uku tabs
    Realy appreciate it if you done it

  • Anne says:

    im glad i can play this song on an accustic guitar. sounds about the same the chords are the same so… yay

  • Emma says:

    I love Twenty One Pilots! I haven’t been playing ukulele for very long but thanks to this website I’m already improving. I would really appreciate it if you made an app for this. Does anybody know a chord you could use to replace B which is easier to play?

  • Ellie.bashaw says:

    this is my current fave song so I love this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ainslee says:

    First off |-/ second there needs to be a mobile app or something cuz this is the best thing ever…..

  • BlurryfacedGirl-Forest says:

    Does anyone know of an easier strum pattern than D DU UDU UDUDUDU.
    Honestly, that is really complicated for me but I want to play the song right

  • TØP IS MY LIFE says:

    Guys I’m the biggest fan ever and I started playing the ukulele just so that I could play their songs

  • Abby says:

    Im just starting of and i love twenty one pilots but their song s are a bit too challenging any suggestions?

    • UkuGator says:

      Hey Abby! I’ve been playing the uke for about 2 and a half years now, and I suggest to play “I don’t know my name,” by Grace VanderWaal. It is pretty easy to play. Also, some TøP songs are easier to play than others. If it’s strum patterns that are concerning you in TøP songs, than listening to the real song helps. It helps you get an idea of what the pattern might be. Especially when playing “House of gold” and “The Judge” because Tyler played the uke in those songs. Hope this helped!

  • Duxo says:

    Hey! Nice tab, does somebody know the strumming pattern? I use DD DUDUD but I don’t think that is the correct one :(

  • jordyn frechette says:

    if anyone want to know the strum for the chorus it is D D U (pause) U D U (pause) U D U (pause) D U D U (pause) D D U (pause) U D U (pause) U D U (pause) D U D U
    U= up, D=down (at least i think it’s this)

  • Havashwavashwashwa says:

    @realukeplayer the first two don’t matter but the last one omfg same

  • JustinDA101 says:

    Is this song for strumming or just one strum each chord?

    • UkuGator says:

      Most of the song is strumming, however the

      I don’t know if this song
      Is a surrender or a revel

      part is a part that is a little different. Once again, listening to the real song may help you. Hope this helped.

  • twentyonepilots4life says:

    love this song

  • Lol says:

    If you change the B to a Bm it sounds much better

  • UkuleleCat147 says:

    I love this website! I have found every song that I would want to play!

  • destiel_trash says:

    if anyone wants the strumming pattern its D/DUDUDU, but you have to know when to change the chords
    it should go like this at the intro/verse:
    Am F
    D/DUDUDU D/DUDUDU
    so you have to change it after first D
    then, at the chorus we have just DDD/DU
    and at the bridge:
    DD D DD D
    Am F C Dm
    repeat it x4
    i hope you understand everything, english isnt my first language
    xx

  • pandahope31 says:

    So, are you supposed to chuck/palm mute during this song? Because I’m doing that, and I think it sounds good, but I don’t want to be wrong…

    • sam says:

      if you want to chuck then go for it dude. theres no chucking in the original but you should really make the song your own. it doesnt need to be an exact replica, put your own flavor into it

  • Tylerjosephisdun says:

  • UkeLove says:

  • JCplays says:

  • PurpleUkuleles says:

    I love this song and Twenty One Pilots I learned how to play Ride, House of Gold, Heathans Message Man and this!

  • The Ukulele Clique says:

    If anyone doesn’t know the strumming pattern i’ll tell you, there are 2 one for the na-na-na-na-oh-oh repeatedly and first part of singing (when the leader of the bad guys sang,.,,etc,..) Its DD-U-D-U-D-U-D-U-D-U-D-U and when it starts singing The Judge (you’re the judge oh no set me free!….etc…) Is D-D-D-D-U and the rest, use your imagination (I hope this helped u

    speak to folks you confidence. You will need to carry out a
    little research throughout the one who will likely to be

    and score of dentists in your community.
    You ought to educate yourself on the backgrounds in the dentists you
    are looking for. You need to additionally look
    into how much cash knowledge the dentist has already established and how extended
    he or she has held it’s place in the profession. Also, recommendations from formal
    institutes, as well as additional dental practitioners, can help you in your own decision-making.

    Dr. Tom Kalili got his BS from UCLA, Doctorate in hospital Dentistry (DMD) from Boston U., Post-Doctoral Research at Harvard U and UCLA according to the direction of Dr.

    particularly if you have not been to a dentist for a while.
    But look absolutely no further, than this short article. Discovering
