                 G
The weight of living 
                G  C
The weight of living
                 G
The weight of living
                G  C
The weight of living


F
All that you desired, when you were a child
     C
Was to be old, was to be old
F
Now that you are here, suddenly you fear
        C
You've lost control -You've lost control-
        Am      F             C  Am F C
Do you like the person you've become?   Oh


G                     Gmaj7
  Under the weight of living
Em                C
You're under the weight of living
G                      Gmaj7
  Under the weight of living
Em                 C
You are under the weight
                G                   Em     C
The weight of living, the weight of living


F
It all crept up on you, in the night it got you
     C
And plagued your mind, it plagues your mind
F
Every day that passes, faster than the last did
     C
And you'll be old soon, you'll be old
        Am       F       C           Am  F  C
Do you like the person you've become?         Oh


G                      Gmaj7
  Under the weight of living
Em                C
You're under the weight of living
G                      Gmaj7
  Under the weight of living
Em                 C
You are under the weight
                G                    Em    C
The weight of living, the weight of living


  Am       F            C                G
-Tell yourself this is how it's going to be-


  Am       F            C                G
-Tell yourself this is how it's going to be-
     Am        F           C                G
Oh, tell yourself this is how it's going to be.
     Am        F           C                G
Oh, tell yourself this is how it's going to be, oh.


G                      Gmaj7
  Under the weight of living
Em                 C
You're under the weight of living
G                      Gmaj7
  Under the weight of living
Em                 C
You are under the weight
                G                    Em   C
The weight of living, the weight of living
                G                    Em   C
The weight of living, the weight of living

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.
