[Intro]
Cm Bb Eb Ab

[Verse 1]
Cm         Bb              Eb              Ab
If I could talk to all the children in the clouds
Cm           Bb                Eb            Ab
The ones who couldn't help but take it lying down
Cm       Bb                     Eb             Ab
I'd say, despite your fate, you made your papa proud
Cm                Bb                Eb                 Ab
There's just some things a guy like that can't say out loud
Ab         G   Ab   Bb  Cm               Ab
Oh, your mama, well she just didn't know how
Ab         G        Ab Bb Cm               Ab
A thousand years of being told to shut her mouth
         Eb
And kept down, down
Eb
Down, down
     Eb
Kept down, down
Eb
Down, down

[Verse 2]
Cm         Bb             Eb             Ab
If I could steal away the outcast of the class
Cm            Bb               Eb              Ab
I'd break him out of there and take him to the tracks
Cm           Bb           Eb           Ab
We'd bet all of it on the horse with a broke back
Cm            Bb                Eb                Ab
We'd watch it win while all the stallions came in last
Ab  G        Ab  Bb   Cm                  Ab
Oh, boy, you see your odds ain't all that bad
Ab      G         Ab  Bb Cm                 Ab
Slim to none, but not so slim you've got to slip
  Eb
Between the cracks
        Eb
So come back, come back

[Bridge]
Gm        Eb
   Pretty girl
Cm        Ab
   Wicked one
G              Eb
   Caught your curse
C               Fm  Gb G
   Cut out your to--o--ongue


[Instrumental]
G

Cm        Bb     Eb        Ab
     Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Cm        Bb     Eb        Ab
     Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Cm        Bb     Eb        Ab
     Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
Cm        Bb     Eb        Ab
     Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh


[Outro]
Ab     G      Ab  Bb  Cm                Ab
One by one we let 'em burn off with the sun
Ab       G            Ab  Bb    Cm          Ab      Eb
Can only hope they're somewhere finally having some fun
Eb
Being young

While everything sounds right, the way it's written is confusing. This song is mostly in the key of Eb, so any chord you have labelled #, should actually be the alternative b. (ie. D# should be Eb, G# should be Ab.)
Other than that, fantastic work! You have a great ear. I think if you learned basic music theory, your appreciation for this type of thing would grow exponentially. Thank you for submitting one of my favourite Mother Mother songs of recent years!
