Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
First I must say, it's sad that this song more famous than it is. I discovered it 
myself last summer, and fell in love with it. So I decided to learn it. First the 
tab, and then I wanted to play it with chords, just try to get the sound of it. 
I'm not sure if it's 100% correct, but it sounds ok in my ears.

What you need:
A guitar in standard tuning 
A capo placed on the 2nd fret

Strumming pattern: I use D-D-U-U-D 


If you listen to the song he quite often builds up from a Em to a G chord. 
So if you want to add that part, well he does is the following on your lowest E-string.
E:|0-2-3 and then play the G-chord.

Feel free to correct me, send me a pm or leave a msg in the comments section and 
I'll try to fix the wrong part(s). I know the chordsplacements aren't 100% 
accurate, but I've done it by ear from the way I remember the song, so bare with me. ;)

Oh, and FYI, I got the lyrics from a random site, and from what I've checked, he 
uses different lyrics on almost every recording I've heard. Not much I can do am I afraid : )

Intro: G-B7-Em-C-G-B7-Em

G               B7           Em                     C     
Well I used to walk along the opposite side of the road 
G         B7                 Em
and made others get out of my way
G          B7                 Em                    C
I used to think that I could sit and wait for the times 
G          B7                 Em 
but I know I should meet them halfway


Em          C            G      B7
I'm halfway home and I'm on my own
Em          C                 G             B7
I'm halfway there and I don't care, I don't mind
Em                C           G                             B7
I plan to leave here after supper time, that's when traffic is light, all I 
Em                 C                G           B7     Em
need is a sign and I'll be alright. I'll be fine

G              B7                      Em                      C
Well I used to think that i could just sleep and then I would dream
G          B7                        Em
And everything it would just come to me
G        B7          Em                  C
Until I woke one day without anything to eat 
G            B7                   Em
Lying on the opposite side of the street


Em          C             G              B7
I'm halfway home and I'm still out on my own
Em          C                 G             B7
I'm halfway there and I don't care, I don't mind
                Em              C        G
Because it ain't my time not to stay or say
             B7               Em                C        G
Well I can't say, but you can bet that i will play my heart out
            B7
I'll won't lay. 

G          B7                     Em                     C
I used to think that I could just sit and wait for the times
G                        B7    Em
But I know I gotta meet them halfway

Em           C             G                B7
I'm halfway home I tried running with the flow
Em           C               G                   B7
I'm halfway there. Ain't it funny how everybody seems to care
Em                     C                               G                
I planned to get there around supper time their serving up bread and wine
B7        Em                     C                    G
All I needed was a sign and I guess I'll be alright.
Em                   C             G              B7
I'll be fine, I'll be fine, I'll be alright, I'll be alright.

Em                         C                          G          B7
It seems to be a running theme about being fine and alright but I don't mind.

Em          C      G    B7
I'll be fine
         Em
I'll be fine
