Bb          Bb7     Eb       D7
 I waited 'til I saw the sun 
Gm           C      Eb      Bb
 I don't know why I didn't come 
Bb           Bb7      Eb       D7
 I left you by the house of fun
Gm           C      Eb      Bb 
 I don't know why I didn't come 
Gm           C      Eb      Bb 
 I don't know why I didn't come 


Bb        Bb7       Eb       D7
 When I saw the break of day 
Gm            C        Eb    Bb
 I wished that I could fly away 
Bb            Bb7      Eb       D7
 Instead of kneeling in the sand 
Gm         C        Eb    Bb
 Catching teardrops in my hand 


Gm            C          F    F7
 My heart is drenched in wine 
Gm            C      F  
 But you'll be on my mind
 Eb  Dm Cm 
 For-e-ver
 

Bb       Bb7      Eb       D7
 Out across the endless sea 
Gm       C      Eb     Bb
 I would die in ecstasy 
Bb     Bb7       Eb       D7
 But I'll be a bag of bones 
Gm       C        Eb     Bb
 Driving down the road along 


Gm            C          F    F7
 My heart is drenched in wine 
Gm            C      F  
 But you'll be on my mind
 Eb  Dm Cm 
 For-e-ver 


Bb           Bb7     Eb       D7
 Something has to make you run 
Gm             C     Eb     Bb
 I don't know why I didn't come
Bb          Bb7    Eb      D7
 I feel as empty as a drum 
Gm             C     Eb     Bb
 I don't know why I didn't come 
Gm             C     Eb     Bb
 I don't know why I didn't come 
Gm             C     Eb     Bb
 I don't know why I didn't come

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.
