D                G         D
Load the car and write the note
D                 G         D
Grab your bag and grab your coat 
D                  G       D
Tell the ones that need to know
Bm     A      G
We are headed north


D               G        D
One foot in and one foot back
D                    G        D
But it don't play to live like that
D                       G          D
So I cut the ties and I jumped the tracks
Bm         A  G
For never to return


D                    G       D
Aw Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in
D                 G      D
Are you aware the shape Im in?
D                      G       D
My hands they shake my head it spins
D                    G       D
Aw Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in


D               G          D
When at first i learned to speak
D             G        D
I used all my words to fight
D                    G       D
With him and her and you and me
            Bm       A      G
Aw but its just a waste of time
        Bm          A    G
Yea its such a waste of time


D                    G         D
That women she's got eyes that shine
D              G                D
Like a pair of stolen polished dimes 
D-                   G            D
She asked to dance I said it's fine - aw it's fine -
Bm                            G             D
I'll see you in the morning time


D                    G       D
Aw Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in
D                 G      D
Are you aware the shape Im in?
D                      G       D
My hands they shake my head it spins
D                    G       D
Aw Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in

D                       G       D
Three words that became hard to say
Bm      A       G
I and love and you
D                    G   D
What you are then I am today
Bm           A        G
Look at the things I do


D                    G       D

My hands they shake my head it spins
D                    G        D
Aw Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in


D                       G        D
Dumb down and numbed by time and age
D                          G         D
Your dreams they catch the world the cage
D                    G          D
The highway sets the travelers stage
Bm         A        G 
All exits look the same


D                       G       D
Three words that became hard to say
Bm      A       G
I and love and you
Bm      A       G
I and love and you
Bm      A       G
I and love and 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.
