There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
this is just a fix to the tab by mitch peters, got most of it right but i think a 
couple of the chords are wrong. most cred goes to him.

awesome song, amazing band!

Intro: E

Well I bit on my lip, and I kicked at my toes
No, I don't need your lecture cause your lecture won't show
          C#m         A         E
That you told me so I told you so
But I would have managed, I would have been fine
I'd do it myself and I'd do it just my way,
    C#m          A              E
I'm a big man for thinking just so.

A                                              E
But somebody told me that your mother was born
A                                           E
Oh a wandering woman with a spirit so sworn of the riverside
A                          B          C#m                  A
And it never surprised me but it meant that my love was immobilized
       B                  C#m             A
Well, it meant that my love was immobilized 
        D             A                      E
Cause when it comes, it comes when it does.

But you came in the middle and you fell in my hands
Oh a, wonderful woman and an average man.
           C#m          A          E
See that makes me the lucky man
I won't be deserving, but I won't be denied
See, I fell in this position, I will still teach my kids pride
           C#m         A        E
Because failure's a part of it all
           C#m               A                     E 
And if failure don't hurt then failure don't work at all

A                                               E
But somebody told me, our nephew was born
A                                            E
Oh, a beautiful baby, so smart and so sure of his little self
A                               B         C#m       A                              
And in a wonderful way he was making me feel so small
      B          C#m     A                   
Was making me feel so small,
       B        C#m       A
Was making me feel so small.
     D                 A         E
And I don't think I've felt this before.

   C#m       A        E              C#m                             A
In all the reasons to come, well they override my body and,
              E                      C#m                     A                 E
I point to the sun, cause where it's warm is where the wilderness grows
And it grows, and it grows 'till it all becomes nothing 
         A                     E
And nothing is left as you know.

    C#m                 A                        E
(We walked it for a thousand years, with broken eyes and salted ears
     C#m                    A                      E
Complaining 'bout the weather like we ever had a choice.
            C#m           A                E 
Through all the noise and self abuse, you waited for your fill of truth
      C#m                   A          E 
Oh I'm terrified I'll achieve nothing at all.)

outro:  C#m, A, E x2

I tried to put all the chords directly above the lyrics where it changes, but when 
you submit it like double spaces everything so some might not be exact. sox boz. 

sounds pretty 100% to me. thanks to mitch peters again for putting in the hard yards!
