Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I'm submitting the chords rather than the tab because it would take a lifetime to properly tab out ;D
But I'm sure you'll get the gist of it after listening to it a couple of times.

Note for the Bm chord - he often uses the typical bass note progression (F# - A - B) to tie it all up.
Similarly when going into the G chord, he climbs up to it (E - F# - G). You'll notice it throughout the song.

[Intro]

Bm G E7

[Verse]

Bm                 G
Sun went careening

over the ceiling
    E7               Bm
and crashed onto the plains
    G           A7             Bm
set fire to the amber waves of grain

Bm                G
The moon it dances over acres and fences
    E7                Bm
and waltzes down into the water
G               A7          Bm
sounds like the ring that I bought her

[Pre-chorus]

G                D
There's a gal in California
F#7                         Bm
see her when I get off this rail
G                 A7            Bm
sent her one last letter in the mail

[Chorus]

         G                   D
Will you wait for me, by the blue oak tree
         F#7
will you marry me?
       G                       D
I know I've been gone and this rail road's long
      F#7                   Bm
but I built it for to carry you a ring

[Verse]

Bm              G
Twelve hour days for minimum wage
         E7                        Bm
and I'll carry every penny back to Sacramento
G                 A7               Bm
This black cherry yard will let me swing home

Bm                 G
Just a railroad man with railroad hands
      E7                              Bm
and I built this track to build you a home
G                  A7          Bm
I just built you a place to be alone

[Pre-chorus]

     G
All the way to Promontory
  D
I wrote a lover's story
   F#7                     Bm
and I'm coming back for to fulfill
    G           A7          Bm
the promises my letters did reveal

[Chorus]

         G                   D
Will you wait for me, by the blue oak tree
         F#7
will you marry me?
       G                       D
I know I've been gone and this rail road's long
      F#7                   Bm
but I built it for to carry you a ring
         G                   D
Will you wait for me, by the blue oak tree
         F#7
will you marry me?
   G                       D
Oh I've been gone and this railroads gone
      F#7                         Bm
But I built it for to carry you a ring
      F#7                         Bm
But I built it for to carry you a ring
      F#7                         Bm
But I built it for to carry you a ring
