Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The actual guitar in this song is more intricate, with a little bit of plucking as well, 
but this is good if you just want to play along. Some of the timing in the intro and 
instrumental break is a little difficult to explain, but if you listen to the track, you'll have no
trouble getting it. Hope this helps!

intro - A E A D A

A                          E
Some people hunger for the greenback bill
Bm                        A
Some folks hunger for the top of the hill
D                          A
Some people just tryin' to get a decent meal
       E                         A
Well I know that we can turn it around
A                         E
Some people sleepin' in a fine feather bed
Bm                            A
Some folks are dreamin' of an old homestead
D                      A
Some just need a place to lay their head
       E                         A
Well I know that we can turn it around

[Chorus]
D                           A
I know that we can turn it around
E                 F#m
There's one thing that I've found
             A                          D
If there's a force in the dim singin' a workingman's hymn
  E                         A
I know that we can turn it around

A E

A                  E
River bottom up to home on high
Bm                  A
In the light of the endless sky
D                 A
Jetsettin' or just gettin' by
  E                         A
I know that we can turn it around

[chorus]

F#m A Bm D E

A                    E
From the 9th Ward up to Patoka Lake
Bm                    A
One man's joy's been another man's pain
D                                    A
But the sun keeps shinin' through the drivin' rain
      E                         A
And I know that we can turn it around

[Chorus x2] end on A
