Your grandpa died

And all your friends fertilize

The ground you walk
DD chord    EE chord    AA chord
Lose your mind
 
 
-no music-
 
He's seen too many stare downs
Between the sun and the moon
In the morning air
How he used to hustle all the people
Walking through the fairgrounds
He's been around so long
He's changed his meaning of a chair now
Because a chair now,
Is like a tiny island in the sea of all the people
Who glide across the very surface
That made his bones feeble
The end can't come soon enough
But is it too soon?
Either way he can't deny
He is a pantaloon

And all your friends fertilize
                    EE chord
The ground you walk
DD chord    EE chord    AA chord
Lose your mind
 
Verse:
AA chord                       DD chord
You like to sleep alone
                          GbmGbm chord
It's colder than you know
                      EE chord
Cause your skin is so
                     AA chord
Used to colder bones
                       DD chord
It's warmer in the morning
                    GbmGbm chord
Than what it is at night
                      EE chord
Your bones are held together
                                   DD chord
By your nightmare and your frights

    Lol I was playing this song in the living room and then when it said “you should never trust the pantaloon” my dad said “that’s true. Do not trust a pantaloon.”
    It was funny because never in my life had my family made any comment on the songs I play on the uke.

  • Annabelle Rose says:

    If you want to make this sound even cuter you can pluck the secong string(C) the pluck the rest together

  • TDoggo says:

    This is really good! I prefer to stay at 0 and use E7 instead of E. Much easier and sounds great!

  • Ruby says:

    anyone know the tab for the piano part at the very beginning? this is my little brothers fav TØP song so I’m trying to figure it out so I can play it for him?
    thanks frens!

  • Hedderstheowl says:

    On “lose your mind” I find it sounds nicer to play Dm Dm A rather than D E A

  • Rachel Trépanier says:

    Kinda*

  • Rachel Trépanier says:

    +3 is east but it’s Linda boring to play like that and doesn’t sound great

  • Mad Hatter says:

    To play an easier E chord, put your first finger on the first string second fret, your second finger on the fourth string fourth fret, your third finger on the third string fourth fret, and your fourth finger on the second string fourth fret. Hope this helps!

  • Joey says:

    I thought that it was a little too high pitched, so I did -2 and it sounds better in my opinion. It’s also fairly easy.

  • paige says:

    playing the chords with two very strong, loud strums immediately after the words where the song says “you are tired, you are hurt” etc sounds really good (did that make sense…?)

Do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
