Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Standard Tuning, Capo 5th fret.
The original version of this did not have part of the bridge after the first chorus, but
the studio version and later live shows do, so I'm including it. Listen to the song to
figure out the tempo changes and such. There's a nice little picking part when the song 
slows down towards the end.

For the intro and the verse Marcus plays the all the chords are barre except Dm:
F:  133211
C:  x35553
Gm: 355333
Dm: x00231
Bb: x13331

For the chorus and the bridge, he has the top 2 strings muted and plays the chords like this:
Dm: xx0231
C:  xx2010
F:  xx3211
Bb: xx0331
During the bridge he lifts off his middle finger to make xx0031 during the long Dm bit.
Listen to the song and you'll hear it.

Good video of an early incarnation of the song:

There is no shortage of live performances on youtube, but this was one of the best as
far as figuring out which chords he plays. Later versions include an earlier bridge, as
mentioned above.


Intro:
F    C Gm
Dm  C  Bb

Verse 1:
F    C   Gm          Dm           C       Bb
Hear my voice I came out of the woods by choice
F             C        Gm
Shelter also gave the shade
        Dm     C       F
In the dark I have no name

F                   C     Gm
So leave that click in my head
            Dm           C             Bb
And I will remember the words that you said
F                        C     Gm
With a clouded mind and heavy heart
         Dm           C           Bb
But I am sure we will see a new start

Chorus:
Dm C             F        Bb
    So when your hopes on fire
Dm C             F        Bb
    But you know your desire
                 Dm             C
    Don't hold a glass over the flame
                   F          Bb
    Don't let your heart grow cold
           Dm          C
    I will call you by name
           F           Bb
    I will share your road

Bridge:
Dm

Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
          Bb   Dm   C  Dm
Cuz I'm a hopeless wanderer
Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
          Bb   Dm   C   F
Cuz I'm a hopeless wanderer

F     C  Gm
Dm  C    Bb

Verse 2:
F               C      Gm
I rustle long with my youth
             Dm       C          Bb
And find it hard to live in the truth
F                   C        Bb
But do not tell me what is right
                Dm      C        F
When I lose my head, I lose my spine
F                    C     Gm
So leave that click in my head
            Dm           C              Bb
And I will remember the words that you said
F                   C        Gm
You brought me out from the cold
           Dm           C           Bb
Now how I long, how I long to grow old

Chorus:
Dm C             F        Bb
    So when your hopes on fire
Dm C             F        Bb
    But you know your desire
                 Dm             C
    Don't hold a glass over the flame
                   F          Bb
    Don't let your heart grow cold
           Dm          C
    I will call you by name
           F           Bb
    I will share your road

Bridge:

Hold me fast, Hold me fast
           Bb   Dm   C  Dm
Cuz I'm a hopeless wanderer
Dm
Hold me fast, Hold me fast
           Bb  Dm   C   Dm
Cuz I'm a hopeless wanderer
Dm                                      Bb   Dm C F
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I wander
F                                       Bb   Dm  C Dm
I will learn, I will learn to love the skies I wander
     Bb   Dm C  F-C-Bb     F
