  In my life I have seen

Just to find memory
            Bm          A
Plagued my constant misery

Take the blood broken dreams

Lonely times indeed
     Dbm       Gbm

time for me to let go

  Way down had to 
                       A E
find a place to lay low
E
  Lamp shade turning 
right into a lamp post

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.
