Intro: C


C                    Em
Waiting for you baby through the coldest days
G                                C
Huddled in the backseat of the van.
C                            Em
Well I know a girl who would wait until it's dark;
G                             C
When she sings the heavens part


C            Em  G  C    Em
They part- ooooh, ooh.


      D        G      C  Em
And I held my ground
       D            G      C
When I heard those sounds
        Em
Coming out
       D          G
And I must have cried
       C          Em
When I held those hands,


   D                  G
So do you know what I mean,
   C                  Em
So do you know what I feel,
   D                  G     C
So do you know what I mean


C                              Em
An' baby don't you know that I love your snaggletooth.
G                        C
I see it pokin' when you laugh.
C                              Em
And baby don't you know that I love those pigeon toes
G                                C
I hope that you get these pigeon lungs.

C        Em  G  C     Em
Lung- oooooh, ooh


      D          G    C  Em
And I held my ground
       D             G    C
When I heard those sounds
        Em
Coming out
       D         G
And I must have cried
       C          Em
When I held those hands,


   D                  G
So do you know what I mean,
   C                  Em
So do you know what I feel,
   D                 G      C
So do you know what I mean


C C C Em G G G G
C C C Em G G G G


C                 G
And I will try my best
Em                   G
To take this big old hen
C                   G
And I will know his name
Em                  G
And always feel the same 


C                    G
And I'll light up so bright
Em         G
Any orange glow 
C                   G
And I'll light up so bright
Em         G
Any orange glow 


C        Em G   C    Em
Glow- oooooh, ooh


      D          G    C  Em
And I held my ground
       D             G    C
When I heard those sounds
        Em
Coming out


       D         G
And I must have cried
       C          Em
When I held those hands,


   D                  G
So do you know what I mean
   C                 Em
So do you know how I feel


   D                   G
So do you know, do you know
   C                   Em
So do you know, do you know
   D                  G
So do you know what I mean

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.
