Verse 1:
B        E
I lost a friend
     E             Dbm
Like keys in a sofa
                             Abm
Like a wallet in the backseat
                       Gb
Like ice in the summer heat
         E
I lost a friend
                       Dbm
Like sleep on a red-eye
                    Abm
Like money on a bad bet

Like time worrying about
B                           Gb       E
Every bad thing that hasn't happened yet

Pre-Chorus:
E                     Dbm
I know I'll be alright, but I'm not tonight
Abm                          Gb
I'll be lying awake counting all the mistakes I've made
          E
Replaying fights
                      Dbm                  Abm
I know I'll be alright, but I'm not tonight
             B
I lost a friend, I lost a friend

Chorus:
          E                  Dbm
I lost my mind, and nobody believes me
                           Abm
Say, "I know that he don't need me
          B                                         E
'Cause he made a little too much money to be 20 and sad"
                     Dbm
And I'll be fine without him
                       Abm
But all I do is write about him
        B                                E     Em
How the hell did I lose a friend I never had?
      B
Never had

Verse 2:
           E
I'm on the mend
                             Dbm
Like I'm wearing a neck brace
                                Abm
Like I'm sleeping in my own place
                                         Gb
Like I'm pulling all the stitches out of my own face
           E
I'm on the mend
                           Dbm
Like I'm icing a new sprain
                              Abm
Like I'm walking on a new cane

Like it's been a couple days
        B                                          E
Since I slipped and said something sorta like your name

Pre-Chorus:
E                     Dbm
I know I'll be alright, but I'm not tonight
Abm                          Gb
I'll be lying awake counting all the mistakes I've made
          E
Replaying fights
                      Dbm                  Abm
I know I'll be alright, but I'm not tonight
              B
I'm on the mend, but I lost a friend

Chorus:
          E                   Dbm
I lost my mind, and nobody believes me
                           Abm
Say, "I know that he don't need me
          B                                         E
'Cause he made a little too much money to be 20 and sad"
                     Dbm
And I'll be fine without him
                       Abm
But all I do is write about him
        B                                E
How the hell did I lose a friend I never had?

Bridge:
E          Dbm                      Abm
I'd apologize if I thought it might make a difference
   B
Or make you listen
E            Dbm
I'd apologise if it was black and white
    Abm
But life is different
     B                   E
Just try to listen to me now

Pre-Chorus:
                      Dbm                  Abm
I know I'll be alright, but I'm not tonight
             B
I lost a friend, I lost a friend

Chorus:
          E                  Dbm
I lost my mind, and nobody believes me
                           Abm
Say, "I know that he don't need me
          B                                         E
'Cause he made a little too much money to be 20 and sad"
                     Dbm
And I'll be fine without him
                       Abm
But all I do is write about him
        B                                E     Eadd9
How the hell did I lose a friend I never had?
       B
Never had

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.
