Intro

G           Em  (repeat)


Verse 1

G                                           
I was born in a town where the rivers flow free
C
On a January night when the cold winds freeze
G
I got an Irish name and an injury
D                         Em
Blessing and a curse cast down on me
G                    D          Em
Ain't nobody got the blues like me
C                    D          G
Ain't nobody got the blues like me


Verse 2

G
Was a blood red sky on the morning tide
C
Was a cold wind blowing when I left that night
G 
And the morning bells rang, alright, alright
D                        Em
Shoulda stayed home with you that night
G                       D         Em
Ain't nobody played the fool like I
C                       D         G
Ain't nobody played the fool like I


Bridge 

C                                 
Things got bad and things got worse
Em
Half like blessing, half like curse
C
It's these blessings so hard to see sometimes
Em
Gotta little clearer about dusk last night
G                  D             Em
Ain't nobody got a blessing like mine
C                  D             G
Ain't nobody got a blessing like mine

G                        D         Em
It's a red sky night and I'm doing alright
C                        D         G
It's a red sky night and I'm doing just fine

It's a red sky night and I'm doing just fine

Can anyone help me with the strumming pattern for this song please?

I think this should also be tuned down a half or a whole step. Sounds a little high to me.

As for the strumming pattern, pat354, it's a nice country rhythm and is fun once you get it down. A bit more advanced if you're a total beginner, but I'll explain it best I can.
You first strike the bass strings, then all 6 strings quickly afterwards. There's a slight pause, then strum up-down-up (quickly).
Then repeat!
You do that 4 times for each one-chord line in the verse (like "I was born in a town where the rivers flow free")
Then on lines like "It's a red sky night and I'm quite alright," you do that strumming pattern I talked about once for the G. The D inbetween goes like this: down-down-up. Then do the normal pattern twice for Em.

Hope that helps!
