Intro -x2-:
    Eb Bb F Gm7
    Eb Bb F

Verse:
Eb           Bb           F    Gm7            Eb       Bb               F
  There's a handwritten note pressed in the door of her screened in porch
Eb          Bb       F    Gm7            Eb   Bb          F
  And I am sailing away recalling that day miles from shore
Eb         Bb             F         Gm7        Eb         Bb            F
  She was still wearing white and robins egg blue, her grandmothers dress
Eb             Bb          F         Gm7        Eb       Bb        F
  When I left early this year, how I wound up here is anyone's guess
Eb        Bb              F         Gm7           Eb                   F
When the new sites grow old and I start to feel cold I'll sail home again

Chorus:
Bb            F
  Goodbye Brielle
     Cm           Eb
Only whispers can tell
       Bb                            F
Of the sweet dreams that we knew so well
         Cm                  Eb
I'll see you around our dear ocean town
    Bb                  F
The frozen days we set ablaze
        Cm        Eb
Sent me drifting away
       Bb             
Like a butterfly you floated by
    F
And now you're alone
       Cm                  Eb
I wish I knew when I'll be back again
   Cm         Bb          Eb
So until then I wish you well
F              
My dear Brielle

Interlude -x2-:
    Eb Bb F Gm7
    Eb Bb F

Verse:
 Eb          Bb        F        Gm7         Eb          Bb                F
  Strolling over the sand and cobblestone paths that wind through the trees
 Eb                  Bb            F           Gm7           Eb     Bb
  and breathing the sweet forest air makes a bluebird aware that she could 
   F
be free
  Eb        Bb         F              Gm7           Eb                    F
  When the new sites grow old and I start to feel cold, I'll sail home again

Chorus:
Bb            F
  Goodbye Brielle
     Cm           Eb
Only whispers can tell
       Bb                            F
Of the sweet dreams that we knew so well
         Cm                  Eb
I'll see you around our dear ocean town
    Bb                  F
The frozen days we set ablaze
        Cm        Eb
Sent me drifting away
       Bb             
Like a butterfly you floated by
    F
And now you're alone
       Cm                  Eb
I wish I knew when I'll be back again
   Cm         Bb          Eb
So until then I wish you well
   Cm         Bb          Eb
So until then I wish you well
  Cm          Bb           Eb
I love you my darling farewell
F
My dear Brielle

    I used the transposer to switch it to the easier version, and I am absolutely in love. It sounds perfect. I can finally play one of my favorite songs <3

      And nine months later, I’m playing it in the regular version! It sounds even better.

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.
