Intro: Am   D7   G   Em

Verse:
Am    D7       G            Em
Wanderers this morning came by
Am        D7       G               F       C
Where did they go, graceful in the morning light
   F      C
To banner fair
   F          G
To follow you softly in the cold mountain air

Verse:
Am          D7         G            Em
Through the forest and down to your grave
Am        D7         G            F       C
Where the birds wait and the tall grasses wave
F       C
They do not
F        G
Know you anymore

Interlude: Am   D7   G   Em   Am   G   F   C -keep strumming C-

Chorus:
C    F      G         C
Dear shadow alive and well
C            F    G
How does the body die
    C       D7                   G
You tell me everything, anything true

Verse:
Am     D7       G         Em
In the town one morning I went
Am     D7          G            F     C
Staggering through premonitions of my death
F       C   F  G
I don't see anybody that dear to me

Chorus:
C    F      G         C
Dear shadow alive and well
C            F    G
How does the body die
    C       D7                   G
You tell me everything, anything true
Em   Am
Jessie


C                 Bb     C
I don't know what I have done
Bb          C             Bb   C
I'm turning myself into a demon
C                 Bb     C
I don't know what I have done
Bb          C             Bb   C
I'm turning myself into a demon

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.
