Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Here you go...a real easy song..just uses 4 chords : Am C G and D. The strumming pattern 
simple as well...down down down up down up or just down, down down up if you want. Or 
could pick the notes if you want, it sounds cool either way.

This is how I play the song, so I think it's pretty accurate. :) It is my first tab, and 
is meant for beginners like me, so the guitar pros - go easy on me!

[Verse 1]

Am                C
All around me are familiar faces
G                 D
Worn out places – worn out faces
Am                          C
Bright and early for their daily races
G               D
Going nowhere – going nowhere
Am                      C
Their tears are filling up their glasses
G             D
No expression – no expression
Am                     C
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
G           D
No tomorrow – no tomorrow


[Hook]

Am                  D                      Am
And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
Am                      D                            Am
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
Am                 D                           Am
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
Am                  D
When people run in circles it’s a very very
   Am                     D
            Maaaaaad world
   Am                       D
            Maaaaaaad world


[Verse 2]

Am                        C
Children waiting for the day they feel good
G               D
Happy birthday – happy birthday
Am                        C
Made to feel the way that every child should
G               D
 Sit and listen – sit and listen
Am                       C
Went to school and I was very nervous
G              D
No one knew me – no one knew me
Am                     C
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson

G                     D
Look right through me – look right through me


[Hook]

Am                  D                      Am
And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad
Am                      D                             Am
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
Am                D                            Am
I find it hard to tell you, I find it hard to take
Am                  D
When people run in circles it’s a very very
   Am                     D
            Maaaaaad world


[Outro]

Am                D
Enlarge your world
Am       D
Mad world
