And we stay in bed 'till we feel alright (oh but we go out at night)



Repeat Bridge Riff: X 6 times (this time all the lyrics are read once, starting 
from the third time)

I found meaning
I found a mission
I found a lord
I found religion
I found something I never had
I'm not sure what but it's not half bad
& I'm glad
I'm so, so glad
Those party habits are gone & dead
I'm turning in my old sinful ways
For a dull new life so I can pray, pray, pray

A                                                               A

I don't know what it is that you've written, but I'm 90% sure that at least a good chunk of it is wrong.
If you're trying to transcribe the guitar, it's just what the guitar tab says except subtract 5 from all of the fret numbers and only play the 4 highest strings.
If you're trying to tab the ukulele version of this song, it's actually really simple:
The chorus is
C D (with a brief Dadd9 with the pink back to D) G
Then the Verse is
G Dadd10 (which is just D, but it's a little higher) Dadd9 D G
The D variations just involve moving your pinky from 9 to 7 to off on the A string.

Or maybe you just put ukulele instead of guitar since your tab clearly shows EADGBe? In that case, this is simply really wrong.
