Intro -x2-: G  G  Em  G  G  G

G          G         Em       
   You can hold  her hand     
    G        G       G
and show her how you cry 
  G        G       Em                              
Explain to her your weakness so she understands  
         G      G      G 
and then roll over and die
     G      G        Em            
Well you can brave decisions       
           G       G    
before you crumble up   
  G
inside 


           G      G     Em                          
Spend your time  asking everyone else's permission 
         G    G       G  
and then run away and hide


G       G      Em              
You can sit on chimneys      
         G     G      G  
put some fire up your ass
           G     G           Em                       
No need to know  what you're doing or waiting for     
       G    G     G
but if any  one  should ask?
          G         G       Em                 
Tell them I've been licking coconut skins      
    G     G       G
and we've been hanging out
          G        G       Em                        
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins    
       G     G    
and relieve  us   
 G
our doubt


Bridge -x2-: G  G  Em  G  G  G


G       G        Em         
You can hold her eggs       
         G      G      G 
But your basket has a hole 
        G      G       Em
You can lie between her legs And go lookin' for: 
                G         G      
Tell her you're searching for    
G
her soul! 


G      G         Em          
You can wait for ages        
               G      G      G
and watch your compost turn   to coal 
   G     G     Em              
But time is contagious:        
     G      G       G
Everybody's getting old. 


G       G      Em              
You can sit on chimneys      
         G     G      G  
put some fire up your ass
           G     G           Em                       
No need to know  what you're doing or looking for     
       G    G     G
but if any  one  should ask?
          G         G       Em                 
Tell them I've been cooking coconut skins      
    G     G       G
and we've been hanging out
          G        G       Em                        
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins    
      G     G     G
and relieve  us  our doubt

  1. G G Em
    You can hold her hand
    G D G
    and show her how you cry

  2. Better to play D instead of second G

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.
