Intro -x2-: Ab  Eb  Bb  Eb

                   Ab
Well it’s your hometown
                 Eb
 I think I’ve outgrown
                     Ab           Bb                    Eb    
 I wanna travel the world but I, I just can’t do it alone
                                 Ab
 So I’m just waiting on fate to come… 
            Eb
Wrap around me
             Ab         Eb                     Bb
 Think about all the foreign places we could be

 
  Ab                Eb        Bb    Eb
 I’ll be flicking stones at your window
         Ab          Eb               Bb        Eb
 I’ll be waiting outside til you’re ready to go
 Ab              Eb           Bb        Eb
 Won’t you come down? Come away with me
 Ab                Eb      Bb        Eb
 Think of all the places we could be
          Fm         Bb                   Eb
 I’ll be waiting, waiting on a brand new day


            Ab
 Riding on waves
            Eb
 Walking on sand
            Ab                 Bb                 Eb
 Digging in caves to find the treasures of the land
                  Ab
 And if we find gold
                            Eb
 Well, we’ll just throw it away
              Ab                Eb                Bb
 We can write stories bout the journeys that we made

 We could be big in Japan


  Ab                Eb        Bb    Eb
 I’ll be flicking stones at your window
         Ab          Eb               Bb        Eb
 I’ll be waiting outside til you’re ready to go
 Ab              Eb           Bb        Eb
 Won’t you come down? Come away with me
 Ab                Eb      Bb        Eb
 Think of all the places we could be
          Fm         Bb                   Eb
 I’ll be waiting, waiting on a brand new day
 Bb                      Eb
 Waiting on a brand new day


 Fm                Cm       Bb
 They said they’ll keep me here

 But I couldn’t go another year
 Fm          Cm       Bb
 I said I’ll see you soon

 Because I whistle to a different tune

Interlude: Ab  Eb  Bb   Eb

 Ab                 Eb     Bb        Eb  
 Think of all the places we could be

Interlude: Ab  Eb  Bb   Eb
 
Ab                Eb      Bb         Eb
Think of all the people we could meet


   Ab                Eb        Bb    Eb
 I’ll be flicking stones at your window
         Ab          Eb               Bb        Eb
 I’ll be waiting outside til you’re ready to go
 Ab              Eb           Bb        Eb
 Won’t you come down? Come away with me
 Ab                Eb      Bb        Eb
 Think of all the places we could be
          Fm         Bb                   Eb
 I’ll be waiting, waiting on a brand new day
 Bb                      Eb
 Waiting on a brand new day

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.
