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
But because of you I might think twice

  1. random ukulele person

    For people with higher vocal ranges, I suggest transposing it up by 3 and playing the E as an E7. Hope this helps!

  2. I am playing a guitar for 8 years (I’m 15) and this is my first ukulele song I’m trying to play. Any sugestions on what else could i play?

    • Cant help falling in love by twenty one pilots is fun lol

    • GlaucousInk

      Riptide by Vance Joy is extremely easy as well as the Judge by Twenty One Pilots.

    • the clique is my family

      lots of twenty one pilots songs from there self titled album like a car a torch a death and addict with a pen and oh miss beliver is super easy too and oh and DEFINITELY house of gold is like SUPER easy ohand car radio and screen

      those are all the easyer ones i know

      sorry for the bad spelling lol my laptop dosnt have auto correct

      i hopw that helped ;)

  3. ._just.a.killjoy_.

    Instead of Db, I just completely bar the second fret and instead of E I do a simple E7

  4. pls send help

    Is there any alternative for Db???

    • in my opinion, a close-sounding alternative for Db is C#. although it sounds a small bit different, it’s the closest alternative i could find. C# is your first finger barring the first fret on the A and E strings, your second finger on the second fret of the C string, and your third finger on the 3rd fret of the G string.
      hope this helped! stay alive ||-//

      • C# is you first finger barring the 4th fret of the A string and E string, your second finger on the 5th fret of the C string, and your third finger on the 6th fret of the G string.
        Hope this helped!

        Sorry, i made a mistake in my last comment, that chord is actually Bb.

    • nobody really

      what you can do is put your first, second and third fingers across the first frets on the G, C and E strings, then put your pinky ligtly on the A string so that it doesn’t make a sound. this can also work if you’re struggling with the E chord – just move your fingers up to the fourth fret. hope this made sense lmao xx

  5. pleaseeatsand

    bar the 4th fret and put your 3rd finger on the first string on the 7th fret; boom there’s the E tyler plays.
    also, to anyone wondering, these are the chords tyler plays in the original song, the acoustic version he does a finger picking pattern first.

  6. one cardinal

    Db alternatives?

    • (Sorry this is a little late) If you completely bar the first fret and then place your pinky on the A string on the fourth fret it sounds kind of like Db.

      • Bhee
        That chord is exactly the same as Db, just an easier way to play it! :)
        I agree with Bhee, but if you also find that hard, there is always C#. It’s a very easy alternative to Db, and sounds similar. C# is you first finger barring the 4th fret of the A string and E string, your second finger on the 5th fret of the C string, and your third finger on the 6th fret of the G string.
        Hope this helped!

  7. For me, personally -3 fits the best. It’s also pretty easy to play

  8. another user that is fan of twenty one pilots

    if u want to play the first part before the F#m (acoustic version);
    A:|-2~4–2–0—–|
    E:|——————2|
    C:|——————–|
    G:|——————–|

  9. theeighteenthpilot

    -2 sounds amazing. Also after each D, just turn it into a D7 and pick the last one. (Should be C really) thanks to whoever made this!! ||-//

    Does anyone know the chords Tyler plays with?

    • another user that is fan of twenty one pilots

      this ones but in one of the first comments i posted what to do before the F#m in the acoustic version
      i hope it would be useful :-)

    Does anyone know the chords Tyler plays with?

  12. Rocio Stipetic

    I replaced E for E7 and I’m so happy

  13. PEOPLE! When I play an E chord, I just mute the C string with my middle finger. It sounds the same as a normal E, and you don’t break your hand to play it. Simple.
