Intro:
    Am F C Dm
    Am F C

Am           F   C
 Na Na Na Na Oh Oh
             Dm  Am
 Na Na Na Na Oh Oh
             F   C
 Na Na Na Na Oh Oh


Am                               F 
 When the leader of the bad guys sang
C                             Dm
 Something soft and soaked in pain
Am                                F   C   
 I heard the echo from his secret hideaway
Am                              F
 He must've forgot to close his door
C                               Dm
 As he cranked out those dismal chords
Am                           F     C
 And his four walls declared him insane


  Em
I found my way
      B
Right time wrong place
     Dm      G
As I pled my case


           F         C
You're the judge, Oh no
       G Am
Set me free
           F         C
You're the judge, Oh no
       G Am
Set me free
  F              G
I know my soul's freezing
       C            Am
Hell's hot for good reason
   F            Am
So please, take me


Am           F  C
 Na Na Na Na Oh Oh
             Dm Am
 Na Na Na Na Oh Oh
             F  C
 Na Na Na Na Oh Oh

 
 Am               
 Three lights are lit
                      F 
 But the fourth one's out
       C
 I can tell cause it's a bit darker
                       Dm
 Than the last night's bout
      Am 
 I forgot about the drought
                        F
 Of light bulbs in this house
           C
 So I head out
                           
 Down a route I think is heading south
             Am
 But I'm not good with directions
                      F
 And I hide behind my mouth
       C
 I'm a pro at imperfections
                              Dm
 And I'm best friends with my doubt
Am
 And now that my mind's out
                             F
 And now I hear it clear and loud
                C
 I'm thinking, "Wow

 I probably should've stayed inside my house."
 

   Em
 I found my way
       B
 Right time wrong place
      Dm       G
 As I pled my case


            F         C
 You're the judge, Oh no
        G Am
 Set me free
            F         C
 You're the judge, Oh no
        G Am
 Set me free
   F              G
 I know my soul's freezing
        C            Am
 Hell's hot for good reason
    F
 So please,
 

Am                    F
 I don't know if this song
C                    Dm
 Is a surrender or a revel
Am                    F
 I don't know if this one
C                   Dm
 Is about me or the devil
Am                    F
 I don't know if this song
C                    Dm
 Is a surrender or a revel
Am                    F
 I don't know if this one
C                     Dm
 Is about me or the devil
 
Interlude:
    Am F C Dm 
    Am F C

            F         C
 You're the judge, Oh no
        G        Am
 Set me free, oh no
            F         C
 You're the judge, Oh no
        G        Am
 Set me free, oh no
   F              G
 I know my soul's freezing
        C            Am
 Hell's hot for good reason
    F
 So please,

    I don´t use a specific strumming pattern, I just let my fingers go wherever they want, and it actually works out really well and sounds really good. :)

  2. skere

  3. I found this strumming:
    Am F
    D-↓-↑-↓-↑-↓-↑ ↓-↓-↑-D-↑-↓-↑

    C Dm
    D-↓-↑-↓-↑-↓-↑ ↓-↓-↑-D-↑-↓-↑

    Change chords where the letter D is in the pattern and you’ll have the same pattern as in the original song ;)

  4. jumpsuit cover me

    wow, what a great song!

  5. You’re the josh, oh no

  6. Weren’t you playing drums?

  7. GIsQuaking

    Does anyone have a specific strumming pattern that they use?? I just got my ukulele two days ago so I don’t have that much experience lmaoo.

    • irene fraguas

      i use DDU UDU UDU DUDU

    • There are different strumming patters for different parts of the song, a video i recommend to watch is the tutorial for this song by elise ecklund.

    • For the part where it is Am, F, C, Dm use DDU, UDU, UDU, DDU
      But the rest of the song I use DDU, UDU

    • i use DDU UDU UDU DDU
      like in the intro you play
      na na na na OH OH
      The nanas are DDU UDU UDU
      and then DDU are the ohs

    • DD UDP DD

      and for the transition notes F+Am, i just do two downs
      so its more like
      DD UPU DD DD
      that last DD is on ether Am or F

      the chorus i use DD UDU

  8. panictrash

    After the “please” in “So please, take me,” I like to add an Fm

  9. thepainter

    I love this song!

  10. Hey all! Great song, keep up the good work!

  11. There was a lyric forgotten. Its (JOSH DUN!)

  12. with the last “na na na na” the chords were kinda wonky but everything else was perfect

  13. panictrash

    I use Fadd9 instead of F, which is just first fret second string, or just lift up your middle finger from the F chord.

  14. Thanks a lot I’m a big twenty øne piløts fan and really like playing there songs this really helped

  15. Tyjo’s Cat

    JOSH DUN

  16. Rønnie_the_tøp_pøtatø

    I love this so much. Best song!

  17. Strumming pattern:
    DDU UDU UDU DDU
    AM F
    DDU UDU UDU DDU
    C D

  18. JishuaDun

    This was perfect!!! I’m teaching myself how to play ukulele and this was a really good help for me!
