Intro: Em

Em                     C         Em
follow you down to the red oak tree
       G                          Am       Em
as the air moves thick through the hollow reeds
        Am                      C             Em
will you wait for me there until someone comes
   Am                Em
to carry me, carry me down


    Em                C        Em
see i have not i have not grown cold
       G                       Am        Em
i have stole from men who have stole from those
            Am                    C           Em
with their arms so thin and their skin so old
            Am                       Em
but you are young, you are young, you are young


     Bm                        C       G
then somebody laughs like it’s all just for hell
              Bm                          C       G
as though we could not be saved from the depth of the well
         Am                     C           Em
but the cloth that i make is a cloth you can sell
   C                D
to pay for the gossamer seed


Em                       C      Em
names get carved in the red oak tree
       G                     Am        Em
of the ones who stay and the ones who leave
       Am                            C              Em
i will wait for you there with these cindered bones
   Am        D         Em
so follow me follow me down
Am        D         Em
follow me follow me down
Am        D         Em
follow me follow me down
Am        D         Em
follow me follow me down

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.
