Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
No 4 in the UK charts in 1972. There's a bit more going on percussion-wise than these
chords would suggest so check out the video on youtube for the rhythm etc. 
The main riff played with chords seems to my ear to be - 

E F# G# A G# E  E F# G# A G# E  E F# G# A G# E A G# E A G# E

Intro = E A E  E A E  E A E

Verse 1
E            A      E
I'm standing in the road
          A     E
A man without a home
               A                          E
My friends all pass me by and never say a word
            A   E
I'm feeling so alone
            A           E
And all the things I've known
             A                       E
Just seem to disappear and never reappear

Verse 2
           A        E        
I feel the rain and cold
                A        E
My clothes have all been sold
           A                                 E
And all my shouts for help just seem to go unheard
             A      E
I'm a just a lonely man
              A      E
Won't someone lend a hand
               A                              E
Don't leave me on my own just standing in the road

Chords as per intro

Repeat verse 1
             A      E
I'm standing in the road
          A     E
A man without a home
               A                          E
My friends all pass me by and never say a word
            A   E
I'm feeling so alone
            A           E
And all the things I've known
             A                        E
Just seem to disappear and never reappear
