Verse 1:
            Bb
I know the Bible isn't perfect
Bb
'Cause it left one person out
Bb
There was Adam, there was Eve
Bb
And there was someone else around
          Eb
Yeah, I think his name was Steve
F                            
And he was passing through town
Bb
When he heard a snake a-whispering
Bb
To Adam in the garden
Bb
"Take the fruit, it's good for you"
Bb
Steve said, "I beg your pardon
   Eb
I know it's not my business
 F                         Bb
But will you just hear me out"

Pre-Chorus:
   Bb
He said, "I wouldn't lie
            Eb
You should not go to that tree
      F                                    Bb
The serpent knows the apple grows from a forbidden seed
         Bb
Oh, you want what you can't have
                Eb
But you've got all the things you need"
            F                                 Bb
There was Adam, there was Eve, and there was Steve

Chorus:
           Bb    Eb        F               Bb
He said, "Adam, don't be fooled by the snake
 Eb           F           Bb
Don't risk it all for a taste
F   Gm   F     Eb
Oh, what a waste
         F                          Bb
To have everything and give it all away"

Verse 2:
Bb
Adam looked around and as he wrestled with his fate
Bb
Steve and Eve rolled up their sleeves to wrestle with that snake
        Eb
In the midst of all the chaos
  F                        Bb
Steve was still screaming out

Pre-Chorus:
    Bb
He said, "I wouldn't lie
            Eb
You should not go to that tree
      F                                    Bb
The serpent knows the apple grows from a forbidden seed
        Bb
Oh, you want what you can't have
                Eb
But you've got all the things you need"
           F                                  Bb
There was Adam, there was Eve, and there was Steve

Chorus:
           Bb     Eb         F             Bb
He said, "Adam, don't be fooled by the snake
 Eb             F         Bb
Don't risk it all for a taste
F    Gm  F     Eb
Oh, what a waste
         F                          Bb
To have everything and give it all away"

Bridge:
     Bb
Sometimes I feel like Adam
             Bb          
'Cause I've got more than I need
     Bb          
But even when I have it all
  Bb             
I want what's out of reach
          Eb
Maybe I should learn my lesson
F                          Bb
Like Steve was talkin' to me

Pre-Chorus:
     Bb
He said, "I wouldn't lie
            Eb
You should not go to that tree
      F                                    Bb
The serpent knows the apple grows from a forbidden seed
         Bb
Oh, you want what you can't have
                Eb
But you've got all the things you need"
            F                                 Bb
There was Adam, there was Eve, and there was Steve

Chorus:
           Bb    Eb          F             Bb
He said, "Adam, don't be fooled by the snake
Eb             F          Bb
Don't risk it all for a taste
F    Gm  F    Eb
Oh, what a waste
          F                          Bb
To have everything and give it all away"

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.
