Listen to the song to get the strumming, it's pretty simple. A great song by a great band.

Intro: C

Chorus
C                                        G
You're my little sinking ship, not quite built to hold such weight
C                                  F
We were raised for the suburbs but we took to the waves
C                                    G
And you carry me around, from little town to little town
Am            F              C
Never knowing how much I need
F            G              C
Never asking a thing from me

Verse
C                                   G
I found you on the doorstep, it was brave to leave your room
C                          F
Mine is a safe place, I'll not abandon you
C                       F      G                      C G C
Or that perfect nuclear family... that I left behind

C                                   G
Now I'm paying too much rent so you buy me some incense
C                                      F
You said you were proud when I stopped smoking cigarettes
C                          F            G                       C G C
And I hope that you're not disappointed... that I started again

C                                         G
And at that awful backyard party where we stole a bottle of red
C                                F
Hopped a train, we got drunk and just sang songs instead
C                          F          G                             C G C
And later on the couch you told me it was the best trip you'd taken

Chorus
C                                        G
You're my little sinking ship, not quite built to hold such weight
C                                  F
We were raised for the suburbs but we took to the waves
C                                    G
And you carry me around, from little town to little town
Am            F               C
Never knowing how much I need
F              G             C
Never asking a thing from me

Verse
C                              G
Sorry you had to hide from the bouncers at my show
C                           F
I organized an all-ages one just so you could go
C                             F         G                         C G C
And I wrote this song an hour before... to try and make you smile

C                                G                
And Liz, do not look up to me, I am a drunken mess
C                                   F
You're so god damn creative, a real force to be reckoned with
C                                        G
And I will say with all my heart and soul
G
That I'll follow you wherever you may roam
             C        G C
Wherever you may roam

Verse
C                              G
Today's the family day so we'll spend it together
C                                     F
Don't tell Mum and Dad, but you're my favourite family member
C                               F    G                                      C G C
You always were the good child, I... was the one who needed all the attention

C                              G    
And you always take my side in battles that are mine
C                                        F
And you say "Will, you fucked up", and I promise that I won't next time
C                                            G
And even though we both know I'm going to, I know you'll be on my side

Chorus
C                                        G                        
You're my little sinking ship, not quite built to hold such weight
C                                  F 
We were raised for the suburbs but we took to the waves
C                                    G
And you carry me around, from little town to little town
Am            F          C
Never knowing how much I need
Am            F          C
Never knowing how much I need you
     F           G              C G C
That you can ask anything of me

I didn't submit this as a Ukulele tab so I have no idea why this is up.
