Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
These are the basic cords to the Dresden Dolls song "Boston" off of No, Virginia. 
They may be a bit more complicated on the piano, but these seem to work really
well as the guitar chords :)

This is standard tuning with a pretty simple rhythm (and easy to sing, too)


        C                                      B
All the cities in the world and so very little time, and
   C                                           B
So many different girls, all you have to do is find them
          C                          Em                 
There's a wealth of opportunity, you make your plans accordingly
  B
A pity that the pretty ones are usually more touristy
     C                                     B
Say, how'd you like to run away from these machines?
C                                         B
Everywhere the spies are printing out our dreams
      C                                   Em
Seven stops in seven different countries, seven page itineraries
B
Memories thick as bloody marys, Jesus Joseph bloody hell
      G                 C
Right now we're here in Boston
   G                  C
In love with downtown crossing
    G                               C
New York will still be there in the morning
     Em      D      C
Come back to bed my darling
      C                                      B
I had Julian and Steve, you had Juliette and Janet
              C                                               B
You wear your terror on your sleeve for all the men I haven't met... yet
      C                         Em
I had Oliver in Potstam you had Elanor in Amsterdam
B
We're keeping score so carefully we've lost the state we're in completely
C
Honestly your foot is out the door and I've got scores of offers
    B                                               C
Elsewhere and keep both feet planted firmly in the air
    C                        Em
And tomorrow you can totally erase me from your mind
           B
No really, everything is fine
              G                 C
Because right now we're here in Boston
   G                   C
In my apartment in the south end
   G                   C
Forget your friends in London
     Em      D      C
Come back to bed my darling
Em              D            C
You can put the details in a letter
    Em     D              C
The more embarrassing the better
      Em           D          C
Right now I can be happy if I choose to
  Em               D              C
I know that in the morning I will lose you
C                                       B
And maybe you'll be mad, and maybe I'll be gray
          C                          
Before we really understand or maybe it won't matter anyway
      B
We'll find out that your mom was right and you'll admit you're really gay
    C                             B
And maybe we'll wake up in a city far away
   C
Or maybe we'll make up, and buy a house
           B
And have a dozen kids who'll run away it doesn't matter anyway
      G                 C
Right now we're here in Boston
   G                              C
In Eden where you almost let your pants down
      G                                 C
Don't worry who these jokes will all be lost on
     Em      D      C
Come back to bed my darling
         Em             D                 C
There is nothing in the world that we can count on
     Em                D        C
Even that we will wake up is an assumption
      Em         D                 C
But I know for a fact that I loved someone
    Em          D                C
And for about a year he lived in Boston
   Em      D    C (let ring)
In Boston
