Cm7           Gm      Ab
All along the western front 
Bb             Gm   Ab
People line up to receive
Cm7               Gm     Ab
She got the power in her hand

Saw her in the Amazon 
With the voltage running through her skin 
Standing there with nothing on 
She gonna teach me how to swim

All along the eastern shore 
Put your circuits in the sea 
This is what the world is for 
Making electricity

You can feel it in your mind 
Oh you can do it all the time 
Plug it in and change the world 
You are my electric girl

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.
