Bb             Gm     Eb     Bb
Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
       F         Eb
In the hills and highlands
Bb               Gm       Eb      Bb
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
      F      Eb
And awake in your mouth


Bb             Gm     Eb   Bb
Hello Seattle, I am a mantaray
        F        Eb
Deep beneath the blue waves
Bb                   Gm        Eb     Bb
I'll crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
        F       Eb
And construct a summer home


Bb             Gm       Eb       Bb
Hello Seattle, I am the crescent moon
        F       Eb
Shining down on your face
Bb                Gm        Eb       Bb
I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
       F      Eb
And descend inside of you


Bb             Gm     Eb      Bb
Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
        F       Eb
Feeling warm in your sand
Bb               Gm           Eb    Bb
I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
        F      Eb
Rolling in the evening breeze

Interlude: Eb F Gm Bb

Bb             Gm      Eb  Bb
Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
       F         Eb
On the docks and your boats
Bb                Gm         Eb   Bb
I sail above your inlets and interstates
            F        Eb
Through the rain and open wind


Bb             Gm      Eb       Bb
Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
         F        Eb
Throwing beams of bright lights
Bb                  Gm          Eb      Bb
Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
       F         Eb
Taking heed from everyone


Eb             F             Gm
Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
       Bb
In the hills and highlands
Eb               F                Gm  
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots


          Eb F      Gm  
Take me above  your light
Bb       Eb     F     Gm
Carry me through  the night
Bb        Eb   F   Gm
Hold me secure  in flight
Bb         Eb   F   Gm
Sing me to sleep  tonight


          Eb F      Gm  
Take me above  your light
Bb       Eb     F     Gm
Carry me through  the night
Bb        Eb   F   Gm
Hold me secure  in flight
Bb         Eb   F   Gm
Sing me to sleep  tonight

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.
