Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
An interesting song. The chords seem to be a standard 3 chord repeating pattern, 
given colour by subtle rhythm variations.  The chords are first.  I've added notes 
for the rhythm patterns after.


Am              Am         Dsus4           Am
  We came home early hoping to catch you unaware
Am          Am                Dsus4          Am
  A little cautious but we've always had too much care

 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
  Dsus4          Am
A weight on the world
 Am        Am        Dsus4
Hand on an anchor

Am                Am           Dsus4               Am
  You've been so tired lately, your skin takes you nowhere
Am          Am              Dsus4          Am
  We wonder what it is keeps you awake and out there

 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
  Dsus4          Am
A weight on the world
 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
     Dsus4      Am
Your weight in gold
 Am        Am      Dsus4     Am     Am
Hand on an anchor
     Dsus4
Your weight in gold

Am          Am           Dsus4              Am
  Your optimism called to say it's out till Sunday
Am           Am               Dsus4            Am
  Your disappointment shuffles off to meet you half way
Am            Am               Dsus4
  Somewhere along the line you fall

 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
  Dsus4          Am
A weight on the world
 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
     Dsus4      Am
Your weight in gold

 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
  Dsus4          Am
A weight on the world
 Am        Am
Hand on an anchor
     Dsus4      Am     Am     Dsus4
Your weight in gold

Am      Am            Am
  Your weight on the world
     Dsus4
Your weight in gold
