Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
G        320033
D/F#     200233 (Technically Dadd11/F# but who cares)
Em       022000
D        000232
C        032010



Try strumming the lower notes more predominantly to get the real bassy sound 
Justin has. Might not be 100% correct so feel free to add corretions/suggestions. 
The G might be a standard G but I never really play the higher strings when I play 
it anyway. Cheers.



       Em                       D       
Well I met you at the blood bank
        C
We were looking at the bags
          Em                  D
Wondering if any of the colors
                   C
Matched any of the names we knew on the tags

         G      
You said "see look it thats yours!
           D/F#
Stacked on top with your brother's
             Em
See how they resemble one another
              C
Even in their plastic little covers"

           C              Em       D       (Hold chords)
And I said I know it well

     G
That secret that you knew
    D/F#
But don't know how to tell
   G
It fucks with your honor
    D/F#
And it teases your head
        Em
But you know that its good girl
        C
Cos its running you with red

          Em                    D       
Then the snow started falling
        C
We were stuck out in your car
         Em                       D
You were rubbing both of my hands
        C
Chewing on a candy bar

                     G
You said "'aint this just like the present
      D/F#
To be showing up like this"
          Em
There's a moon waning crescent
   C
We started to kiss

           C                Em             D
And I said I know it well

G
That secret that we know
        D/F#
That we don't know how to tell
       G
I'm in love with your honor
       D/F#
I'm in love with your cheeks
            Em
What's that noise up the stairs babe?
        C
Is that Christmas morning?

           C                Em             D
And I said I know it well
I know it well ...

Dead on! So great! Thank you for this...it's my favorite Bon Iver song and now I get to play it on my Ukulele. :)

As with so many Bon Iver songs, there is an important nuance that really makes this song sound the way it does. During the C chord, there is a bass note that's dropped a full tone then hammered back on. To emulate it, I've changed the C chord to some Frankenstein chord that sounds good and allows for this bass note to change on the third string from an E to D and back to E, or 4-2-4, like so (strumming pattern is shown below):3--3---3-3-3--3--3--3---3-3-3--3--4--4---4-4-2--4--0--0---0-0-0--0--\ \ / \ / /Note that I play this un-named chord by barring the third fret with my third finger and using my third and first fingers to sound the E and D notes on the third string. It's not a comfortable position, but it works and it sounds good.
