Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Adam uses a strange tuning for this song. Makes it super easy to play though. One of their best. 

Drop your 3rd string down to F#. Drop your 6th to B.

How he plays the chords:

Em7: 020xxx
Em:  022xxx
A7:  002020
E:   022100

Intro: Em7 Em x4

Verse 1:
Em7  Em Em7     Em     Em7         Em  Em7  
I steal a look between the blinds
Em Em7 A7
I unwind
Em7  Em    Em7        Em Em7         Em  Em7 
She sleeps in comfort in my arms
Em  Em7 A7               Em7    Em   Em7  Em 
She is plain, but she is mine
Em7    Em Em7       Em  Em7    Em   Em7
Our child is silent but awake
Em   Em7 A7               Em7  Em  Em7
I run my hand through his hair
   Em   Em7      Em Em7     Em Em7      Em  Em7     
I teach him manners and how to stick up
Em Em7 A7                  Em7  Em Em7       
For himself when things get bad
  Em   Em7                    Em  Em7          Em Em7   Em  Em7  
I tell him, "Son, never throw the first punch,
    Em Em7 A7                 Em7    Em   Em7 
And if you must fight, make it clean"

Chorus:
    E      Em7  A7
Shiola, Shiola, will all be forgiven?
    E      Em7       A7                            E
Shiola, Shiola, am I strong enough to start again alone?
   Em7       A7                    E      
The taste of home is filling up my mouth
Em7   A7                        E
Is it wrong to love a family of ghosts?
    Em7     A7                        E 
Her door is open, the windows are all up
    Em7           A7     Em7  Em  Em7
She says, "Come inside"

Verse 2:
  Em   Em7    Em   Em7    
I live alone, more or less
  Em Em7 A7                   Em7   Em  Em7
I summon wife, child, and happiness
           E           Em7      A7
Build them up from the dirt and clay
  E         Em7        A7
I have to believe that all will be forgiven

Chorus:
    E      Em7                 A7
Shiola, Shiola, will all be forgiven?
    E      Em7       A7                            E       Em7
Shiola, Shiola, am I strong enough to start again alone?
   A7           
My heart is overflowing
    E      Em7      A7                         E
Shiola, Shiola, the love and anger coiled into one
     Em7      A7                        E
They take and take, but never get their fill
 Em7      A7                       E
I try and try, but fail against my will
 Em7      A7                               E
I wait and wait, for that hand to sweep me up
    Em7              A7           
And take me down the road home

Outro:
Em7 Em x3
A7 Em7

Extremely accurate. I have been trying to learn this song for so long and I finally found a version of it that sounds right!
