Intro: C G Am F

C
This is how it works
G
It feels a little worse
Am
Than when we drove our hearse
F
Right Through that screaming crowd


C
While laughing up a storm
G
Until we were just bone
Am
Until it got so warm
F
That none of us could sleep


C
And all the styrofoam
G
Began to melt away
Am
We tried to find some worms
F
To aid in the decay


C
But all of them were home
G
Inside their catacomb
Am
a million ancient bees
F
Began to sting our knees


C
While we were on our knees
G
Praying that disease
Am
Would leave the ones we love
F
And never come again


C
And on the radio
G
We heard November Rain
Am
That Solo's real long
F
But it's a pretty song
C
We listened to it twice
G 			Am F
Cause the DJ was asleep


C
This is how it works
G
Your young until you're not
Am
You love until you don't
F
You try until you can't


C
You laugh until you cry
G
You cry until you laugh
Am
And everyone must breathe
F
Until their dying breath


C
No, this is how it works
G
You peer inside yourself
Am
You take the things you like
F
And try to love the things you took


C
Then you take that love you made
G
And stick it into some
Am
Someone else's heart
F
Pumping someone else's blood


C
And walking arm in arm
G
You hope it don't get harmed
Am
But even if it does
F
You'll just do it all again


C
And on the radio
G
You'll hear November Rain
Am
That Solo's awful long
F
But it's a good refrain


C
You'll listen to it twice
G
Cause the DJ is asleep
Am
On the radio
F
On the radio
C
On the radio -Uh-oh-
G
On the radio -Uh-oh-
A
On the radio
F
On the radio

Outro: C G Am F

    This is how it works:
    You’re young until you’re not
    You love until you don’t
    You try until you can’t
    You laugh until you cry
    You cry until you laugh
    And everyone must breathe
    until their dying breath

  5. I love this song so so much thank you!!!!

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.
