E         A
The wind is beating on my window
E         A
I haven't slept all night
E         A
That drum just keeps on banging
E         A                      
They must be buzzing in the mind, 
A                 A
bees in the hive, tell me when the morning arrives


E             A               
This place is just not for me
E        A
I say it all the time.
E        A
My friends they just ignore me.
A                  A
Tell me nevermind, waiting on your line for the Slumville Sunrise.


Em        C      G
Slumville Sunrise.
Em        C      G
Nobody cares or looks twice
C                 G                   B                 Em
Shout away in the morning across this place where I was born in
C                 G           B             Em
Every roof, every flower illuminated by the morning


E                          A
My face upon the concrete, the dirt is in my mouth
E                          A
I clench my fist and feet. I try to cry out loud
A             A
Make a sound, somethin is keepin me down


E             A
This place is just not for me
E             A
I'll say it a thousand times
E             A
My friends they just ignore me
A                  A
Tell me nevermind, waiting on your line for the Slumville Sunrise


Em        C      G
Slumville Sunrise.
Em        C      G
Nobody cares or looks twice
C                 G                   B                 Em
Shout away in the morning across this place where I was born in
C                 G           B             Em
Every roof, every flower illuminated by the morning


E             A               
This place is just not for me
E        A
I say it all the time.
E        A
My friends they just ignore me.
A                  A
Tell me nevermind, waiting on your line for the Slumville Sunrise.


Em        C      G
Slumville Sunrise.
Em        C      G
Nobody cares or looks twice
C                 G                   B                 Em
Shout away in the morning across this place where I was born in
C                 G           B             Em
Every roof, every flower illuminated by the morning
C                 G           B             Em
Every roof, every flower illuminated by the morning

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.
