There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This version is from the new Dusk and Summer album. It's a bit weird to play on guitar
it's meant for piano but I've transcribing it to sound good on acoustic. You should be
to play along to the song with this tab or play solo and sound good as long as you tune 
half step down.



[Verse 1]
G            Am                 Em
Hand out the window flotain' on air
                   D                         G      Am-Em-D
Just a flip of the wrist and I am waving you goodbye
G               Am                   Em             D
Drive past the lifeguard stand where I'd sit around waiting for you to
G       Am-Em-D
As I drive

G                         Am
How the girls can turn to ghosts before you eyes
        Em                                D
And the very dreams that lead to them are keeping them from dying
G                                Am
And how the grace with which she walked into your life
     Em                              D
Will stay with you in your steps and pace with you a while
For so long so long
So long, So long

[Verse 2]
G                Am          Em       D
The speaker in this door is blown so nothing sounds quite right
               Am                      Em       D     G
Taking my time taking this drive waving this town goodbye
                 Am    Em D           G
And I drive this ocean road and remember
G                  Am                        Em
The smell of your back the nape of your neck I remember everything
As I drive
I'm wavin' this town goodbye.


[Super-lame bah dah dah vocal part]

G                           Am                             Em
And I will leave under the cover of summer's kiss upon the sky
                             Am                              D
Like the stone face of your lover just before she says goodbye
                            Am                              Em
And I was thinking that the season could be held between my arms
                             Am                              G   Am-Em-D
But just as summer's hold is fleeting I was here but now I'm gone
I'm gone


Make sure the song ends on G and if you're cool, don't do the lame dah dah dum vocal
especially at the end.

this tab's so bad... here we go, thats how you should play it:

verse: G/A7sus4/Em7/Dsus
"as i drive" -> Cadd9
chorus: G/A7sus/Cadd9/Em7/Bb/Cadd9
bridge ("and i will leave under the cover... etc) -> Cadd9 all the time
rest of the song: G/A7sus4/Em7/Dsus

thats it. it sounds good when you play it with a picking that sounds like the piano he plays. and try to add those bassline-changes in the chorus.
