There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
There are 2 main chords that repeat throughout the entire song, I figured this out by ear and by watching
some of his acoustic sessions on youtube.
2 cords:



OPENING RIFF: h= hammer on    ho= hammer off
STRUMMING PATTERN: down down down up down up(h) up down(ho) up(h) up down up

 Bb               Eb


Bb                         Eb
Excuses pour out so easily and I've never had a trouble 

with the frequency.
But it needs a mate to calm me down,
Eb            Bb                Eb            Bb
postcards and phones calls to a long distance small town.


And I've never been good with secrets to keep,
but I can lie white, right through my teeth.
Bb                            Eb
That current takes us, and we breathe it in.
Bb                           Eb
Mistakes in old friends to a short coming, quick end.
Bb                           Bb
An empty-eyed blank stare at an atlas,
Eb                 Bb     Eb
I'm lost without a map or compass.
Bb           Eb
And I revise and I rewrite.
Bb              Eb           Bb               Eb
I'm drowning in long nights, late drives with old ghosts,
I'm an index of footnotes.
Bb                                          Eb
And I'm sick, sick, sick of my complaining, that rhetoric 

that I've been writing.
Bb                                   Eb
That blood red bled from ink to pen, I'm blue/black 

backwards, I am paper thin.

(RIFF plays softer towards the end)
