"Hummingbird" by Miss E
From the show Orange is the New Black (Season 3 Episode 1)
Tabbed by: Brandon Madsen (brandon dot madsen at gmail dot com)

Ukulele chord shapes used (standard tuning):
C: 0003
E: x442 or 4442 or 1402 (can't tell what she's doing and it sounds fine with any of these)
G: 0232 (this might not be the voicing she uses, feel free to correct)
Am: 2000
F: 2010

These shapes will work on guitar too if you put the capo on fret 5 and imagine "xx" in front of each of them.
Miss E is the daughter of OITNB's creator, Jenji Kohan.  She wrote this song in 2014 at the age of 12.

C               E          Am               F
   People don't sing about days that didn't happen, and 
C               E       G                  C
   people don't cry for tears that weren't shed.
C               E             Am         F
   Time doesn't stop when you close your eyes, and our 
C          E                    G               Am  F
   big ol' clock will just keep ticking 'til it dies.

G                              Am        F
   Can you hear the hum of the    hummingbird?  Can you 
G                            Am             F
   smell the breeze carrying leaves that it lured?
        C            E               Am      F
Can you cry for your mother and your father too?
        C         E           Am     G       C
Can you breathe until there's no air left in you?

C                E       Am         F
   What if there were no wings on a butterfly, and
C             E        G        C
   what if we walked a thousand days?
C                    E          Am       F
   How long would it take if we all held hands, and
C           E              G             Am        F
   how many miles could we go before our heads lay down?

CHORUS (same as previous)

Am             F                      G                   C 
No one's going home tonight without a   heartache and the moonlight.
Am             F                 G              C                    Am
Keep on moving on until there's nothing else to move on to and we're gone.


        C         E           Am     G       C
Can you breathe until there's no air left in you?
