Intro -x2-: D  Bm  G  D

Verse:          
   D            Bm     G              D 
Trouble is her only friend and he's back again.
   D            Bm  G           D  
Makes her body older than it really is.
 D                           Bm 
She says it's high time she went away,
               G          D    
No one's got much to say in this town.
   D            Bm   G       D  
Trouble is the only way is down.
        A
Down, down.

Chorus:         
                   D              Bm 
As strong as you were, tender you go.
                     Gbm                   G
I'm watching you breathing for the last time.
                  D                     Bm 
A song for your heart, but when it is quiet,
                 Gbm                       G
I know what it means and I'll carry you home.
                 D
I'll carry you home.

Verse:                  
D                          Bm  
If she had wings she would fly away,
    G                      D  
And another day God will give her some.
   D            Bm   G       D
Trouble is the only way is down.
        A
Down, down.

I know what it means and I'll carry you home.
                 D

               G                  D               A 
And they were all born pretty in New York City tonight,
        G             D                                A
And someone's little girl was taken from the world tonight,
            G    D      A 
Under the Stars and Stripes.

Chorus:       
                  D               Bm
As strong as you were, tender you go.

I'm watching you breathing for the last time.
                  D                     Bm
A song for your heart, but when it is quiet,
                Gbm                        G
I know what it means and I'll carry you home.

I'll carry you home.

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.
