C 		 F
I don't know my name
Am 		     G
I don't play by the rules of the game
       C 	     F
So you say I'm just trying
     Am G
Just trying


     C        	       F
So I heard you are my sister's friend
    Am              G
You get along quite nicely
    C            F
You ask me why I cut my hair
    Am                 G
And changed myself completely

F        G
I am lost
Am                 G
Trying to get found
               F
In an ocean of people

Please don’t ask me any


C 		 F
I don't know my name
Am 		     G
I don't play by the rules of the game
       C 	     F
So you say I'm just trying
     Am G
Just trying


C             F
I now know my name!
Am                  G
I don't play by the rules of the game
       C           F
So you say I’m not trying
        Am G
But I’m trying
                C
To find my way

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.
