Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No
This tab is inspired by Tyler's ukulele version, found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmemeE9vh7Y

Note: when the Am is played, you slide from the third fret
to the second fret (the second fret being the Am chord)

Another note: at the second bridge, instead of strumming, you pluck only the E and C strings.

There is a different version of Am used in this song - I will note it by calling it "Am2".
Am2 = 5400

A|--0---|
E|--0---|
C|--4---|
G|--5---|

Another version of Am is used again - I will note this one by calling it "Am3".

A|--3---|
E|--0---|
C|--0---|
G|--2---|

The E chord is also alternative to what I usually use; below is what Tyler uses.

A|--7---|
E|--4---|
C|--4---|
G|--4---|

On the very last line of the song, Tyler plays a little riff on the A string. It goes like this:

A|--3-3-5-3-3-2-|
E|--------------|
C|--------------|
G|--------------|


[Intro]

F   Dm   Am   Am2


[Verse 1]

F                          Dm                          
I wish I found some better sounds no one’s ever heard,
Am                    Am2
I wish I had a better voice that sang some better words.
F                          Dm
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new,
Am
I wish I didn't have to rhyme every time I sang.
F                          Dm
I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink,
Am
But now I’m insecure and I care what people think.


[Pre-Chorus]

          F                Dm              Am     Am2
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think.
          F                Dm              Am     Am2
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think.


[Chorus]

F             G             C        E            Am
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
G                   C                E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am            G             C        E            Am
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
G                   C                E                       F   Dm  Am
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am2
We’re stressed out.


[Verse 2]

F   Dm   Am   Am2

Am                             G
Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young,
F                  Fadd9   C              Am3
How come I’m never able to identify where it’s coming from?
Am                          G
I’d make a candle out of it if I ever found it,
F                                     C                 Am3                         
Try to sell it, never sell out of it, I’d probably only sell one.
Am                     G
It’d be to my brother, ‘cause we have the same nose,
F                        Fadd9   C            Am3
Same clothes homegrown a stone’s throw from a creek we used to roam.
F                              Dm
But it would remind us of when nothing really mattered,
               Am                           Am2
Out of student loans and treehouse homes we all would take the latter.


[Pre-Chorus]

          F                Dm              Am     Am2
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think.
          F                Dm              Am     Am2
My name’s ‘Blurryface’ and I care what you think.


[Chorus]

F             G             Am       G
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am            G             Am       G
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.


[Bridge]

F                        G
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
C                                     E
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away.
Am                                           G
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
        C                          E
Saying, “wake up, you need to make money", yeah.
Am                       G
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
C                                     E
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away.
Am                                           G
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
E
Saying, “wake up, you need to make money", yeah.


[Chorus: strum once for each chord on the first line]

F             G             Am       G
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E-
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.
Am            G              C       E
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol’ days,
Am       G          C               E-
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we’re stressed out.


[Bridge]

Am           Am               G             G
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, money.
C            C        E           E
Used to play pretend, wake up you need the money.
Am           Am               G             G
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, money.
C            C        E           E
Used to play pretend, wake up you need the money.


[Outro: play one strum on each chord]

F                        G
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
C                                     E
We would build a rocket ship and then we’d fly it far away.
Am                                           G
Used to dream of outer space but now they’re laughing at our face,
[riff is at top of page]
Saying, “wake up, you need to make money", yeah.
