E                         Gbm
What would you think if I sang out of tune,
          B7                       E
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
E                          Gbm
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song,
         B7                     E
And I'll try not to sing out of key

E                    Gbm

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.
