remember keys
Dbm                      E           
I used to know you when you were young
A                  E     Ab
You were in all my dreams 
Dbm                 E
We sat together in period one
A                   E   Ab
Fridays at eight-fifteen
Dbm                         E  
Now I see your face in the strangest places
A              E    Ab
Movies and magazines
Dbm                   E
I saw you talking to Christopher Walken
A        E                
On my TV screen


    A               E
But I will wait for you
   A                Abm  B
As long as I need to
           Dbm               E
And if you ever get back to Hackensack
A                E
I'll be here for you


Dbm                  E          
I used to work in a record store
A                 E  Ab
Now I work for my dad
Dbm                        E
Scraping the paint of the hardwood floors
A                    E  Ab
The hours are pretty bad
Dbm                       E  
Sometimes I wonder where you are now
A            E Ab
Probably in la
Dbm                     E
That seems to be where everybody 
A                  E                
Else ends up these days


    A               E
And I will wait for you
   A                Abm  B
As long as I need to
           Dbm               E
And if you ever get back to Hackensack
A                E
I'll be here for you

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.
