Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Standard tuning capo 4th fret.

Worked this out from the audio of the first time the song was played publicly, during the Newport Folk 
Festival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g77X7_GesPo

All of the chords are finger picked apart from the final one which is strummed once.


Notation:

Asus4  x0223x

[Intro]

D


[Verse 1]

        D       A       
I could take my time
            D         G
And I could speed you up
        D        Asus4
I could pull you in
  D         G
I can't get enough
      Bm                     A      A
Let's go, slip sliding in my veins...
 
 
[Chorus 1]

    D                 A
Cos this life is only chains
     Bm                             G
It's nothing like the colours in my dreams
       D                    Asus4
I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
       Bm        A              G
And my horses of English racing green
Bm             A              D
You and me and British racing green
 

[Verse 2]

           D       Asus4
And it can hold us down
       D          G
It can break your pride
          D        Asus4
And if it gets too rough
              D       G
Well you just climb inside
      Bm                     A      A
Let's go, slip sliding in my veins...
 

[Chorus 2]

    D                 A
Cos this life is only chains
     Bm                             G
It's nothing like the colours in my dreams
       D                    Asus4
I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
       Bm        A              G
And my horses of English racing green
Bm             A              D
You and me and British racing green
 

[Bridge]

    D     Dsus4  Asus4
And don't you know
     Bm              A           G
That you and I we're never going home
      G                  Asus4
Since we don't wanna be alone
        Bm  A  G
Here we go
             Asus4      Asus4
Sliding in my veins...
 

[Chorus 3 & Outro]

    D                 Asus4
Cos this life is only chains
     Bm                             G
It's nothing like the colours in my dreams
            D                   Asus4
And I just wanted to be Steve McQueen
       Bm        A              G
And my horses of English racing green
Bm             A              D
You and me and British racing green

    D                       Asus4
And this life is always the same
     Bm                              G
It's nothing like the colours in our dreams
         D                   Asus4
We just wanted to be Steve McQueen
         Bm        A              G
With our horses of English racing green
Bm            A              G
You and me in British racing green
Bm          A       D 
You and me, Steve McQueen.

Transpose +5 and this works really nicely as a ukulele tab too :)
