The future just aint what it used to be

Uptight, I'm a nag with a gun yeah.  All night, suicide's last call now.

I've been uptight all night, I'm the son of gun.


Gb: 00-000             00-000

-Play above part twice

Gb: 00000     00000
Db:      00000        0-0
Ab:                3-3
-Repeat entire chorus one time



Eb: 3332223332223322
Bb: 3333333333333333
-Repeat INTERLUDE 8 times

-Play bass line from 'VERSE' for whole interlude.


-Guitar play chorus 4 times and then end on E chord.
-Bass play chorus 4 times and then end on Ab:-7-

That's pretty much the whole song.  The strumming patterns probably not
exact, just listen to the CD and you'll get a feel for the right patterns.
The bassline is pretty simplified because I'm not a true bass player.  I
know Mike Dirnt adds his stuff in between, but I just gave the basic idea.

About the artist behind Uptight Chords:

Green Day is an American punk trio formed in 1987.[1] The band has consisted of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass guitar, vocals), and Tré Cool (drums, percussion) for the majority of its existence.

Green Day was originally part of the punk rock scene at 924 Gilman Street in Berkeley, California. Its early releases for independent record label Lookout! Records earned them a grassroots fanbase, some of whom felt alienated when the band signed to a major label.[2] Nevertheless, its major label debut Dookie (1994) became a breakout success and eventually sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone, and 15 million copies sold worldwide.[3] As a result, Green Day was widely credited, alongside fellow California punk bands The Offspring and Rancid, with reviving mainstream interest in and popularizing punk rock in the United States.[4][5] Green Day's three follow-up albums, Insomniac, Nimrod and Warning did not achieve the massive success of Dookie, but they were still successful, reaching double platinum and gold status respectively.[6] Green Day's 2004 rock opera American Idiot reignited the band's popularity with a younger generation, selling five million copies in the U.S.[7]

The band has sold over 65 million records worldwide,[8] including 22 million in the United States alone.[9] They also have three Grammy Awards, Best Alternative Album for Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot, and Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams".
