Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is by far, one of the better, lesser known Dashboard Confessional songs, and I was 
to see no adequate chords for it. The majority of this is improvised, as Chris uses few 
chords throughout the song.

Played in half-step-down tuning. The A7 Chord is played, from lowest string, to highest, 
as opposed to 002020. Strumming pattern is down-down up-up, in syncopation (listen to 
for further details)

  G                     C
carry this picture for luck
            A7
kept in a locket
                 D
tucked in your coller
                G7
close to your chest
            C
make it a secret
                A7      D
shown to the closest friends
     G                    C
and meet me at quarter to 7
                    A7
the sun will still shine then
                 D
at this time of year
                   G7
we'll head to the inlet
                   A7      D
and we'll share a bottle there


      G                        B
and color the coast with your smile
                Em
its the most genuine thing
               C
that ive ever seen
          C (solid strum, let fade)
i was so lost
     D       G
but now i believe


G C A7 D


      G                          C
and follow me south of the big docks
                  A7
they teather the boats
               D
the rich men revere
         G7         C
as so important
                 A7        D
they hire our fathers to steer
      G                       C
and down to the edge of the water
                       A7
where we'll spill our guts
                     D
and we'll name our fears
 G                    C
i'll give you this picture
            A7
keep it and dont

be
  D
scared

      G                        B
and color the coast with your smile
                Em
its the most genuine thing
               C
that ive ever seen
          C (solid strum, let fade)
i was so lost
     D       G
but now i believe

G
and the coast
       B                   Em
your smile is the most genuine thing
                C
that ive ever seen
           C (Solid strum, let fade)
i was so lost
     E       G
but now i believe
         C
and i believe
        A7
now i believe
        D
now i believe

Here's the deal, there's NO such thing as an "E#" haha, it's actually called an "F" but it doesn't quite sound right, but the rest of the chords are fantastic, thank you :):)
