Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The first version on here is sorta on the right track, but the timing is very off,
and it has a lot of wrong chords (such as G where it should be Em) -
so I figured I'd put up my own version which I believe to be 100% correct.

Dan plays this without a capo live, but on the record, it's D shapes, capo 2, in standard tuning.
If you don't want to use a capo, transpose up two semitones so the first chord reads "E".

[Intro]

D A Em G D A Em (x2)

[Verse 1]
               D
He invited me in;
                   G
Said his name was Jesse and to take a look around
                        D             A             Em
I found my coat at the bottom of the closet, dug it out
                         D
The only thing that she left
              G
There in the middle of the room, was the couch
               D                       A
She’d always hated the pattern or the texture
   Em
I can't remember it now
Bm                A                    G
I relived those nights there breaking down
Bm            A          Em
I guess I’ll see myself out

[Chorus]

G            D               A
You kept me waiting like the G Train
G           D              A
I held the door open for hours. I had to walk away
   Em      D              A
I rode the A line out to Rockaway
G   D      Bmaj          C
I’m always drawn to the water

[Verse 2]

                           D
Walked the streets to the shore
               G
Passed by the murals fading off of the walls
                    D                  A                Em
Still licking the fresh wounds from a hurricane in the fall
                    D
And I watch them rebuild
              G
I hummed a Ramones song out of key
                    D             A
Staring off at the skyline over shorebreak
      Em
And remembering
Bm              A             G
that this same ocean almost killed me
Bm         A        Em
South Carolina, seafoam green

[Chorus]

G            D               A
You kept me waiting like the G Train
G           D              A
I held the door open for hours. I had to walk away
   Em      D              A
I rode the A line out to Rockaway
G   D      Bmaj          C
I’m always drawn to the water
            F#m
I felt the weight

[Bridge]

               Bm                  Em               A
On a calendar long enough, all my grief starts to decay
F#m            Bm                       Em              A
On a calendar long enough it grows more useless by the day
      F#m                      G
And I read that on a calendar long enough
    Em                            A   G
New York will be returned to the sea
F#m                  G                  Em              A
When the water gets high enough, it’ll take back everything
       Bm             G
So the subway and the G Train
      D                 A
Our apartment, all our memories
        Bm              G
Come to rest there underwater
          D                              A
All the things that I thought meant the most to me
          G                     A          D          G
I try to picture it-- just the top of the skyline at low tide,
              G              A            D              G
Piercing the surface as the ships try to navigate their lanes
           G           A                D         G
And there alone and triumphant on the crest of a wave
         G        A    D
Is the couch you gave away
