Verse:
               CC chord
This town will never change
                        GG chord
People come and go, it's all the same
                       CC chord
Speed the roads on our doubting days
                    GG chord
To any place that's far away
 
 
                CC chord
I never learned anybody's name
                  GG chord
We all vowed that we wouldn't stay
                     CC chord
Kissing signs on the interstate
                     GG chord
All we do for now is sit and wait
 
Pre-Chorus:
CC chord               GG chord      CC chord                GG chord
Ah, In our idle town. Ah, in our idle town
 
Chorus:
      AmAm chord                       GG chord
Yeah, we invent our own little games -in our idle town-
      AmAm chord                       GG chord
When the lights out at the stadium, hey -in our idle town-
      AmAm chord                       GG chord
Making life a spinning arcade -in our idle town-
       CC chord                  GG chord                   CC chord
And curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise
GG chord                   CC chord
We watch the sunrise
GG chord
We watch the sun
 
Verse:
                    CC chord
Springtime when the air is thin
                               GG chord
We're getting antsy and they're noticing
                      CC chord
While everybody's off partying
                          GG chord
We're watching stars over ice-cream
 
 
                            CC chord
And now we're kicking up to seventh gear
                           GG chord
And we're breathing in the atmosphere
                        CC chord
And I don't even need a sip of beer
                GG chord
Yeah I can feel it all
 
Pre-Chorus:
CC chord               GG chord      CC chord                GG chord
Ah, In our idle town. Ah, in our idle town
 
Chorus:
      AmAm chord                       GG chord
Yeah, we invent our own little games -in our idle town-
      AmAm chord                       GG chord
When the lights out at the stadium, hey -in our idle town-
      AmAm chord                       GG chord
Making life a spinning arcade -in our idle town-
       CC chord                  GG chord                   CC chord
And curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise
GG chord                   CC chord
We watch the sunrise
GG chord
We watch the sun
 
Bridge:
CC chord                    GG chord
  And they watched the sunrise
                    CC chord         GG chord
Blinking out of red eyes, and sore minds
CC chord                    GG chord                    CC chord
  The airplanes keep flying by, and they cry
                          GG chord
'Cause they've never even touched the sky
CC chord                       GG chord
 No, they'll never even touch the sky
 
Chorus:
     CC chord                        GG chord
Yeah we invent our own little games -in our idle town-
     CC chord                    GG chord
And everybody's trying to escape -in our idle town-
CC chord                   GG chord
Killing time at the yellow café -in our idle town-
CC chord                         GG chord
 And curfew's at midnight -in our idle town-
 
Outro:
    CC chord                         GG chord
Yeah I think that we'll all be okay -in our idle town-
    CC chord                        GG chord
The idle town will stay as it stays -in our idle town-
   CC chord                         GG chord
And everyone I love's in this place -in our idle town-
 CC chord
So curfew's at midnight
GG chord
 We watch the sunrise

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 "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you.
