Intro -x2-: Bm  D  A

    Bm         D
Well I own this feel 
    Bm        D
And I rode the sky 
    Bm        D         Gb           G
And I have no reason to reason with you 


       Bm                         D
I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you lowered, 
      A                                 Bm
but I understand that I'd never let it go 
                                  D
I'd be sad that I never held your hand as you were lowered,
      A                                 Bm
But I understand the world does what it does 


    G             D            A
You never did learn to let the little things go, 
        G            D            A
And you never did learn to let me be. 
        G            D          A
And you never did learn to let little people grow, 
    G            D         A
You never did learn how to see. 


      Bm                           D
But I whisper that I love this man now and for forever, 
        A                             Bm
To your soul as it floats out of the window. 
       G              D           A
To the world that you turned your back on, 
       G              D               A
To the world that never really let you be. 


     Bm             D
I am lower now, and lower still, 
            G               D               A
And you did always say that one day I would suffer, 
        G               D                A
You did always say that people get their pay, 
        G               D             A
You did always say that I was going places, 
             G                D         A
And that you wouldn't have it any other way. 


      Bm                         D
But I couldn't turn my back on a world, 
                         A
For what I like wouldn't let me, 
      Bm                         D
But i couldn't turn my back on a world,
                   A 
For what I like anyday 


      Bm                         D
And I couldn't turn my back on a world,
                         A 
for what I like wouldn't let me
      Bm                         D 
And I couldn't turn my back on a world, 
                 A
for what I like I needed 
      Bm                  
And I shouldn't turn my back,
     D                        A       D     A
on a sweet smelling Blackberry Stone.

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.
