GbGb chord

The telephone is ringing in the afternoon
                                   BB chord
I was talking to your mother--about you
                          GbGb chord
Yeah we were talking 'bout you

She said you were in the garden where the sunshine blooms

I can see you in the front lawn
         BB chord                     GbGb chord
When I'm gone, my heart is with you

BB chord                                   DbDb chord                 CC chord

I hope you know I always call you my home

I live by the freeway on a fabric bench
                                 
I wonder when the next that time I'll be fed
        BB chord                  GbGb chord 
I'm fed up, I'm fed up with this

You're probably sleeping in your plastic house
                                                          
I can see you in the front room

  1. I use the DU-DDU-DDU-DDU strumming pattern but mute every U stroke. It sounds pretty similar to the song and it’s simple enough. Also for the C chord at “thinking about”, I do two downstrokes.

  2. it’s a lot easier if you switch B to A, Db to E, Ebm to Gbm, and Abm to B

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.
