Intro -x2-: Gbm E A A

           Gbm          E   A
We don't believe what's on TV
              Gbm    E       A
Because it's what we want to see
            Gbm          E           A
And what we want we know we can't believe
            Gbm        E        A
We all have learned to kill our dreams


  Bm
I need to know 
     Gbm                        A         A7
That when I fail you'd still be here.... mmmm
      Bm                        D 
Cause if you stick around, I'll sing you pretty sounds 
               E
And we'll make money selling your hair


Db                  D 
I don't care what's in your hair
         A                       E
I just wanna know what's on your mind
  Db                  D
I used to say I wanna die before I'm old
    A                            E
But because of you I might think twice

-Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!-

Interlude -x2-: Gbm E A A

           Gbm        E   A
What if my dream does not happen?
             Gbm              E       A
Would I just change what I've told my friends?
              Gbm      E       A
Don't want to know who I would be
            Gbm       E         A
When I wake up from a dreamer's sleep


  Bm
I need to know 
     Gbm                        A        A7
That when I fail you'd still be here... mmmm
      Bm                        D 
Cause if you stick around, I'll sing you pretty sounds 
               E
And we'll make money selling your hair


Db                  D 
I don't care what's in your hair
         A                       E
I just wanna know what's on your mind
  Db                  D
I used to say I wanna die before I'm old
    A                            E
But because of you I might think twice
Db                  D 
I don't care what's in your hair
         A                       E
I just wanna know what's on your mind
  Db                  D
I used to say I wanna die before I'm old
    A                            E

  1. it’ll be easier if you do e7 instead of e and for the db chord you do the same for the b chord but starting in the fourth fret

  2. Love this song

  3. if y’all know the riff + the alternative way to play the E chord for this song, please try it with a capo on the second fret. it sounds adorable i don’t know why okay thanks

    • delta @FR0MAFIRE on twitter

      i usually do
      A 2s4s2– 0
      E – – – – ——2—
      C – – – – – –
      G – – – – – –
      the s is slide
      so ur gonna pluck the second fret on A and while it’s ringing out ur gonna slide to the 4th fret and back to the second, them pluck the A string open.
      then it’s just gbm, e, a
      what tyler does, and what i do is barre the 4th fret and put ur finger on the 7th fret string A
      it’s kinda tricky when u first learn it, but it gets easier…
      and that’s all there is to it lol

    • owie my hands

      If you use E this way, in most songs, it sounds better, and can switch easier!
      So, what I think of is doing a backward A chord, and a Cmaj7 chord combined! For more clarity on case you don’t get it, put your index finger on the first fret of the fourth string, middle on the second fret of third string, and ring finger on the second fret of the first string! Remember, bottom is 1, top is 4.

  4. At the very top of any song, in the pinkish/peachy coloured box, you’ll see the word ‘transposer.’ there are numbers going right on the same line, ranging from -7 to +7, and each number has different chords that can be used for this song. hope this helps <3

  5. Instead of the normal E, Nice it up one octave by barring the 4 fret and putting your pinky on 7th fret of the a string

  6. What does the ‘|- – – -|’ mean in the last interlude? Sorry, I don’t normally read this kind of stuff :p

    • EasyPeasyPumpkinPeasyPumpkinPieMotherfFluffer

      It means finger picking. So, that bit in the last interlude mean you put a finger on the 5th fret of the a string and just pluck that string. I hope you get what I mean :) ||-//

    • It’s a tablature thingy, meaning that you play just the 5th fret of the A string (the bottom one when holding the ukulele normally)

  7. ||-// Stay alive:)

  8. toporange

    practice it daily you’ll learn very soon ^^ love this song sm

  9. isn’t it hard af
    ahahah lol i’m such a noob

  10. teresa_the_traitor

    stay alive fren

  11. TYJO.AND.JISHIWA

    -2 and +3 are good for beginners

    • Twenty_one_mistakes

      lol I’m a noob what does that mean lol

      • at the top where is says “transpose” in the yellowish box, press +3 or -2 (I personally prefer +3) and it still sounds like the same song, but all the chords are shifted three half-steps higher, making for easier to play chords. hope you get it now :))

      • wishingforhappiness

        in the peach colored box up top there’s a line of numbers with + and -, and next to it it says transposer. so if you click on the -2 or +3, the page will change and give you different notes

    • thanks that helped a ton. i play bass guitar, and my chubby fingers don’t know how to work

  12. thefangirlplays

    In his acoustic version he does
    A 4-2-0- –
    E – – – – -2-
    C – – – – – –
    G – – – – – –
    then Gbm E6 Gbm

    • delta @FACE0FC0NTUSI0N on twitter

      It’s actually
      A 2s4s2– 0
      E – – – – ———
      C – – – – – –
      G – – – – – –
      S means slide.
      Then I do Gbm, E, A.
      That’s just what I think sounds right! ||-//

  13. Kamila Górecka

    I love you! Thank youuu <3

  14. defaultdance

    Instead of E, use e7. Bar the fourth fret play the fifth fret on the a string:
    a | -5—————-
    e | -4—————-
    c | -4—————-
    g | -4—————-
    It sounds a lot better and I’m pretty sure that’s how Tyler plays it. Also if anyone is wondering how to play the little riff in the intro of the acoustic version, I usually play:
    a | -4-2-0———
    e | ——————
    c | ——————
    g | ——————
    I hope this helps! :)

  15. i want to use the chords am, g, and c instead of the other ones, but i dont know what to do for the other parts, any help would be appreciated

  16. I use +3
    DDU-UDU on every chord aside from the chorus and just use single down strums.

  17. +3

  18. help me plz
