C         G            C
  Cut off all of your hair
F           C              G
  Did you flinch, did you care
C         G            Am   F    C
  Did he look, did he stop and stare
          G        C
At your brand new hair


C        G          C
  Local boy, local news
F        C             G
  Power lines hanging boots
C      G            Am     F   C
  Firemen in their trucks cut loose
   G            C
a local boy's shoes


C       G         C
  Cadillac, cadillac
F          C               G
  Businessmen dressed in slacks
C       G          Am      F      C
  Imma buy one for us when I get back
   G        C
a big cadillac


             F      C             G
And you can wave to all of your friends
          F     C          G
And I'll never leave you again


C             G              Am         F   C
  Would you write, would you call back baby if
    G          C
I wrote you a song
C            G                Am       F    C
  I've been gone, but you're still my lady and
    G          C
I need you at home


C     G      C
  Romeo, Juliet
F       C          G
  Balcony in silhouette
C        G            Am  F  C
  Making O's with her ci-ga-rette
    G  C
Is Juliet


C          G             C
  Flapper girl, flapper girl
F       C         G
  Prohibition in curls
C          G          Am  F   C
  Hair of gold and a neck of pearls
     G      C
Is flapper girl


            F      C             G
And you can wave to all of your friends
          F     C          G
And I'll never leave you again


C             G              Am         F   C
  Would you write, would you call back baby if
    G          C
I wrote you a song
C            G                Am       F    C
  I've been gone, but you're still my lady and
    G          C
I need you at home


              F       C       G
Cause if you ain't behind my door
        F           C       G
Then I ain't got a home anymore


C             G              Am         F   C
  Would you write, would you call back baby if
    G          C
I wrote you a song
C            G                Am       F    C
  I've been gone, but you're still my lady and
    G          C
I need you at home


C         G           Am          F         C
  Lovers come, lovers go, lovers leave me alone
             G       C
She'll come back to me

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.
