Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is based on acoustic videos of the Night Terrors of 1927 playing and my own simplifications of that
It also uses barre versions of chords so check the chord notation below because if you try to just play the 
chords normally it won't sound right

Intro:

4 muted chords
F A#m Dm C Csus

Verse 1:

F             A#m   Dm                       C     Csus
Maybe you got soft, Flew out the door on the breeze
F                  A#m  Dm 
Maybe you just got lost On the way back home.
Cmaj7
On the way back home to me.
F                 A#m       Dm                Cmaj7
Maybe we're just pretending, And maybe I don't mind
F                 A#m    Dm
So, now that it's ending, I don't wanna know
Cmaj7                      Cmaj7
Was it all a waste of time?

Chorus:
 
F                               A#m
It's the end of the world, It's the last taste of wine
Dm                            C
When you were, when you were, When you were mine,
F                                 A#m
You were lost. I was blind and we swore it was time
Dm                            C                              F 
When you were, when you were, When you were my waste of time.
A#m          Dm
Waste of time

Verse 2:
F                   A#m     Dm                    C     Csus
So, I wrote one more story, I just don't know how it ends
F                         A#m    Dm
About all the boys you're seeing, The ones that you
Cmaj7
That you call your friends.
F                   A          Dm                      C    Csus
This nightmare keeps repeating, We'll never get to the end
       F           A       Dm                Cmaj7             
Of this fire we're feeding, The hottest love has the coldest end.

Chorus:

         F                     A
From the start of it all to the end of the line
Dm                           C
When you were, when you were, When you were mine,
        F                         A
You were lost. I was blind and we swore it was time
Dm                           C                         F     A
When you were, When you were, When you were my waste of time.
        F   A#m        Dm   F        Dm  F          C   Csus   C Csus
Waste of time, waste of time, Waste of time waste of time.

Dm   Cmaj7    Cmaj7

(Play softly)
        F                      A
From the start of it all to the end of the line
Dm                           C
When you were, when you were, When you were mine,
        F                        A
You were lost. I was blind and we swore it was time
Dm    (Gradually play louder)C                         F     A#m
When you were, when you were, When you were my waste of time.
        F   A#m        F    A#m       F    A#m       F    A#m       Dm   Cmaj7     F
Waste of time, waste of time, Waste of time, Waste of time, Waste of time, Waste of time.
