Intro: E, A X4

G                 C
She says wake up, it's no use pretending
G                   C
I'll keep stealing, breathing her
G                 C
Birds are leaving over autumn's ending
G                 C                  D
One of us will die inside these arms
C              D
Eyes wide open
C              D
Naked as we came
C                   D
One will spread our
C               G
Ashes round the yard
G             C
She says if I leave before you darling
G                 C
Don't you waste me in the ground
G             C
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
G              C                     D
One of us will die inside these arms

C              D
Eyes wide open
C              D
Naked as we came
C                   D
One will spread our
C               G
Ashes round the yard

    -2 was crazy easy and still sounded like the original when sung.

  2. colorWIRED

    +3 for noobs.
    Just fyi for the other beginners who almost smashed their ukus trying to get the E and the B….
    I’ll get back to that one later thanks.

  3. randomfandom

    It’s pretty easy on +1

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.
