Intro: Db

Verse:
Bbm            Gb            Db
 And all I remember is your back
 Bbm                          Gb                   Db
 Walking towards the airport leaving us all in your past
             Ab              Bbm          Gb
 I traveled fifteen hundred miles to see you
Ab              Bbm
 Begged you to want me
                  Gb
 But you didn’t want to

Chorus:
       Db     
 But piece by piece he collected me
    Ab
 Up off the ground where you abandon things
      Bbm                                         Gb
 And piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me

 At six years old and you know
Db
 He never walks away

 He never asks for money
Ab
 He takes care of me

 He loves me
  Bbm
 Piece by piece

 He restored my faith
         Gb
 That a man can be kind
                   Db
 And a father could stay

Verse:
Bbm               Gb          Db
 And all of your words fall flat
         Bbm                     Gb                     Db
 I made something of myself and now you wanna come back
       Ab                 Bbm
 But your love it isn’t free
               Gb
 It has to be earned
        Ab                    Bbm
 Back then I didn’t have anything you needed
         Gb
 So I was worthless

Chorus:
       Db     
 But piece by piece he collected me
    Ab
 Up off the ground where you abandon things
      Bbm                                         Gb
 And piece by piece he filled the holes that you burned in me

 At six years old and you know
Db
 He never walks away

 He never asks for money
Ab
 He takes care of me

 He loves me
  Bbm
 Piece by piece

 He restored my faith
         Gb
 That a man can be kind    
                     
 And a father could stay

Bbm              Gb

Chorus:
  Db
 Piece by piece I fell far from the tree
          Ab
 I would never leave her like you left me and
  Bbm
 She will never have to wonder her worth
          Gb
 Because unlike you I’m gonna put her first and you know
Db
 He’ll never walk away

 He’ll never break her heart
Ab
 He’ll take care of things

 He’ll love her
  Bbm
 Piece by piece

 He'll restore my faith
         Gb 
 That a man can be kind
                              
 And a father should be great

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.
