Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
   A                        
We got off the plane in the cold, cold rain
     E
Lost track of the hour, lost track of the day
        D                     Bm              E
We were very far away from anywhere we'd been before

   A
We got on a bus and we went to the city
    E
Got off at a stop because we liked the name
        D
We were in for an adventure
           Bm              E
And that's all we knew for sure
       D               F#m              E
And we walked until we couldn't walk no more
Bm                    E (single strum)
Jet lag and sore feet led us to the door
      A    
Of an expensive noisy bed
               E
Where we could rest our heavy heads
   D
We slept away the rest of the day
    Bm            E
And well into the night
       A              F#m        Bm
And we woke up with a hunger for life
                E
Well before the sun rised

   A
We didn't have money to ride the underground
      E             
So we walked the miles and miles of this town
     D
When night fell like a rock we realized
Bm                         E             A
We were never gonna find a patch of open ground

                        E
And the rain was comin' down
                             D
And the trains were shuttin' down
                          Bm
We were worn out, wet and lost
             E             A
There was no shelter to be found


A   E   Bm   E   A   E   A   F#m (single strum)

D   E

   A   
We spent over a week of our budget
     E
On a taxi and a bed
    D
And we made plans at night to escape
     Bm        E
This expensive wonderland

         A     
We would set out for the wild
         E
We would see what was beyond
         D
We would sleep above the soil
             Bm            E
And we would travel by our thumbs

    D                E
And written above my hostel bed
   A               F#m
In black marker it said
           D
"There's a light
       E          A
And it never goes out"


   A
We didn't have a clue what we were doin'
   E
We didn't even know where we wanted to go
         D
The next day we took the tube all the way
    Bm                E
Out to the end of the line

   A
It took us five hours to find a place to stand
   E
We stuck out our thumbs, we raised our hands
       D
It was rainin' hard again
    Bm             E
But we were not surprised

D               F#m
No one wants to pick you up
E
When you're soakin' wet
       Bm              D
It was hard not havin' second thoughts
      E (single strum)
About goin' on this trip

       D                   A
And we ate the rest of our hostel bread
        D          A
Under a dark, damp underpass
   D                   A
We watched the cars go past
    D               A
The sun was sinking fast
    D                 A
But salvation came at last
     D                A
In a little blue hatchback
    E                D              A
And he took us a few miles down the road

    A 
The day was almost over
       E
It was hard not to give in
       D
We had made it outta the city
        Bm                                   E
We were thinkin' about givin' up and settin' up our tent
      A
But a Jeep pulled over then
       E
And he told us to get in
   D
He said his name was Nick
              Bm               E (single strum)
Right away he felt just like a friend

       D               E
And he took us to some land
           A              D
Where some people live on buses
  D           E
Invited us to stay the night
    A
And we could not refuse
   D                E
We got a bus of our own
       A   
And it had a soft, warm bed
   D              E
We built a little fire
       A
And we dried our soaking shoes
       Bm             E
And we slept, yeah we slept
                 A
Just like little babies

    A
The next day at Stonehenge
              E
We couldn't afford to get in
   D
We thought it would be free, 
           Bm                E
We were surprised to see the fence
     A
This day would set the theme
        E
Of this trip for you and me
         D
We could pay to see the sights of Europe
   Bm                 E
Or we could choose to eat

       D                    F#m
And we pressed on to an old Roman city
       E
And we made it before night
Bm                D
We broke down and bought some fries
     E (single strum)
Just so we could get dry

    D         A   D          A   D          A
And curse the sky, curse the sky, curse the sky
   E             A
It rains all the time

   A
We found a spot to pitch our tent
E
It was our first night in it
    D
The rain soaked in, the ground was cold
   Bm           E
It sank into my bones
       A           F#m             Bm
And we decided that it was way too cold
                      E
To keep goin' the way we had planned to go
    A                         E
And that night we agreed that we would turn around
     D                                  Bm             E
We'd head for warmer ground, we'd start makin' our way south

       D         E              A               D
Oh you can't get lost if you've got no place to go
    D                  E              A               D
You can't take a wrong turn if you're not on your way home
       Bm                D       E      A
And we realized just how free we really were
