Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
  Really nice song with very emotive lyrics. Note that the G to G# to A to B are
only links from the G# and B and are only played due to sliding your Barre chord
down the fret. I find this song easier to play using the chords with the root
note on the E string rather than switching from barre chords which have thier
root note on the E and A string. 

E  B x 2

B   G#m   A Bb  B

B                                  G#m              G G# A  B
A friend of mine grows his very own brambles
B                                       G#m         G G# A  B
They twist all around him until he can't move
B         G                  B
Beautiful quivering shivering shambles
B          G                B                  
What is my friend trying to prove

B   G#m   A Bb  B  x2

B                                          G#m         G G# A  B
He boosters a tall gentle boy to a terrible totem 
B                                              G#m    G G# A  B
And the kids gather round trying to see what's inside
B                 G                           B       G G# A B
I think when he's drinking he's drowning some riots
B          G                B                         G G# A B
What is my friend trying to hide?

B                                         B Bb A G#m  G G# A  B
Cuz it's breaking my heart, it's breaking my heart
B                                  B Bb A G#m         G G# A  B
And it's breaking my heart to pull at the reigns
B          G                         B          G G# A B
Brother of mine don't run with those fuckers
B            G                    B             G G# A B
When will my friend start singing again
B            G (held on longer)   B
When will my friend start singing again

Not so sure about the "oooh" part but i think the chords are just E (barred at
the 12th fret) to B. This is played four times.

B Bb A G# G G# A  B  x 3

I think the key is a semitone lower. The opening part and the "oooh" part is F - Cm - F - Cm - F - Gm. The first verse part is Bb - Gm and the second verse part is Bb - F# - Bb. The runs between these chords is straight up and down with no gaps in both cases - going up it's G - G# - A - Bb and going down it's Bb - A - G# - G. Hope this helps

I think the lyrics in the second verse go "The booze turns a tall gentle boy....etc"
