E                     B
help me out, said the minnow to the trout
      E                     B
i was lost and found myself swimming in your mouth
    E                       B
oh, help me chief, I’ve got plans for you and me
  Gbm
I swear upon this riverbed, 
     B
I’ll help you feel young again
A            E                  
oh, not your everyday circumstance
    A
the hummingbird 
       B
taking coffee with the ants, and I said


E                         A
please, I know that we’re different
            E                          A
but we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
    E    B     A           E   B   A 
and what we’re made of was all the same once
      E   B    A               E
we’re not that different after all

E B

E                    B
help me up, said the eagle to the duck
     E              B
I’ve fallen from my nest so high above
    E                 B
oh, help me fly, I am too afraid to try
    Gbm
now saddled with a fear of heights 
    B
I’m praying you can set me right
A            E
oh, not your everyday circumstance
    A
the elephant 
        B
sharing peanuts with the rats, and I said


E                         A
please, I know that we’re different
            E                          A
but we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
    E    B     A           E   B   A      
and what we’re made of was all the same once
      E   B    A               E
we’re not that different after all

E B A

E              Am    B
we are tied in history, 
E                     Am   B
wide-connected like a family
E              Am    B
we are tied in history,
E                     Am   B    Am   B 
wide-connected like a family, a family...

   E                         A
so please, I know that we’re different
            E                          A
but we were one cell in the sea in the beginning
    E    B     A           E   B   A         
and what we’re made of was all the same once
      E   B    A               E
we’re not that different after all
      E   B    A               E
we’re not that different after all

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
