# Opening play 4 times E E E E D D A A..

E E D D E E
Dear Mother, Can you hear me whining?
E E D D G G B B
It's been 3 whole weeks since I have left your home
E E D D E E
This sudden fear has left me trembling
E E D D G G B B
'Cause now it seems that I am out here on my own
G G B B
And I'm feeling all alone...

# REFRAIN:
E E G G A A C C
Pay attention to the cracked streets, and broken homes
E E G G B B
Some call it slums, some call it nice...
E E G G A A
I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my
C C E E B B
home...Welcome to Paradise (Do the EE D D A A thingy twice)

# 2nd Verse...
E E D D E E
A A gunshot rings out at the station
E E D D G G B B
Another urchin snaps, and left dead on his own
E E D D E E
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
E E D D G G B B
For some strange reason it's now feeling like my home
G G B B
And I'm never gonna go...

E E D D E E
Dear Mother, Can you hear me laughing?
E E D D G G B B
It's been six whole months since I have left your home
E E D D E E
It makes me wonder why I'm still here
E E D D G G B B
For some strange reason it's now feeling like my home
G G B B
And I'm never gonna go...

About this song

"Welcome to Paradise" is a song from Green Day's 1992 album Kerplunk and was re-recorded for their 1994 album Dookie. It went on to be released as the second single released from Dookie, after "Longview". The Dookie version was later included on their 2001 greatest hits album International Superhits!. The song is based on the band's experience moving out of their parents' houses and into an abandoned house in Oakland, CA where the band members, along with several others, lived without paying rent.
