C             G               Am   C
Say what you say i just sail away
                G                  Am  F
She can't stand me but i miss her face
               G              Am            C

 F             G                     C
Stand tall it gets a little better
                            Am
I see the wall that we can break down together
F           G                         Am

We can break it down, we can break it

I see the wall that we can break down together
F           G                         Am

The pressure man come to pressure us
               F             G
They came to watch us fall
                     Am              C
Oh yes they came to watch us fall
             G                   Am
And we will rise up against them all

 F                                 G
Tell me what are we fighting for, just to do what we

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.
