Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
In the verses, you can play the C5addC# Cm combo as Fm Cm also. There's a C# in there somewhere, but it 
isn't crucial.

Also, the Eb sounds better with the G as the root note (i.e., a first inversion), 
especially if you are arpeggiating it (G Bb Eb Bb)

I also tabbed this for no capo (in C minor), but it will be easier to play on guitar with Capo on 3.

[Verse 1]
Cm         D7
Wasting my time
  Gm            Cm
A shadow on the riverbank
Eb          Gm               Cm
Watching my reflection go to sea
Cm              D7
Wind in my hair
Gm                       Cm
I could be most anywhere
       Eb            Gm
But I do not care to know
            Cm
Not where I stand

[Chorus 1]
Bb              Fm
Baby, I`ve been lost without you
        Ab                            Eb
Since I don`t have a place to call my home
             Fm Bb         Fm             Bb 
Oh, my sweet ba-by, must I empty my heart?
       Fm              Gm                 Cm
Must I take what I can get and make it my own?
             C5addC# Cm
As long as I love my baby
Fm       Gm
I`m only lonely

[Verse 2]
     Cm              D7
She said not to call
Gm               Cm
Said it would be best for all concerned
   Eb     Gm                Cm
If I just all but disappear
Cm                 D7
She loves you best
Gm                         Cm
And I love her nonetheless
          Eb            Gm           Cm
So I just listen to the voice on the machine, singing

[Chorus 2]
Bb              Fm
Baby, I`ve been lost without you
        Ab                            Eb
Since I don`t have a place to call my home
             Fm Bb         Fm       Bb
Oh, my sweet ba-by, must I empty my heart?
       Fm              Gm                 Cm
Must I take what I can get and call it my own?
             C5addC# Cm
As long as I love my baby
Fm       Gm
I`m only lonely

[Bridge]
Ab            Bb
Maybe one day she`ll call me up and say
Cm
"Goddamn you your baby's crying,
    Ab   Bb           Cm
And I'm lonely.  Come home."
Ab                   Bb
Maybe I'll find some guts someplace
          Cm
And drive up and you'll be there playing on the porch
Ab                   Bb              Fm
And she'll just say "Baby, where you been?
               Gm
And ain't your little man growin'?"

[Verse 3]
Cm        D7
Pay me no mind
           Gm            Cm
I'm just a shadow on the riverbank
Eb            Gm             Cm
Watching my reflection go to sea

[Chorus 3]
Bb              Fm
Baby, I`ve been lost without you
        Ab                            Eb
Since I don`t have a place to call my home
             Fm Bb         Fm       Bb
Oh, my sweet ba-by, must I empty my heart?
       Fm              Gm                 Cm
Must I take what I can get and make it my home?
             Fm   Cm
As long as I love my baby
Fm       Gm
I`m only lonely

[Outro]
Cm
