Capo
novice
8th fret
Strumming pattern: DDU DDU DDUUDU
[NOTE] Bm is not the correct chord, I chose it because it sounds close to the
original one and I didn't know what the right one is called. It looks like this:

e|--0-|
B|--3-|
G|--2-|
D|--0-|
A|--0-|
E|--2-|

CAPO 8

[Intro] Em Bm G G  (x 3)

[Verse]
Em  Bm               G                     Em   Bm              G
   I know a man with nothing in his hands, nothing but a rolling stone
Em  Bm                      G                    Em        Bm         G
   He told me about when his house burnt down, he lost everything he owned
Em       Bm            G                        Em            Bm
   He lay asleep for six whole weeks, they were gonna ask his mother to
G
choose
     Em      Bm                      G
When he woke up with nothing he said I'll tell you something
               Em        Bm                     G
When you've got nothing, you've got nothing to lose

[Chorus]
                C                    G                   D
Now I've got a hole in my pocket, a hole in my shirt, a whole lot of
              G
trouble, he said
     C                      G                    D
but now the money is gone, life carries on and I miss it like a hole in the
G
head!

Em Bm G G  (x4)

[Verse]
Em       Bm            G                          Em   Bm       G
  I know a woman with kids around her ankles and a baby on her lap
          Em          Bm        G                         Em
she said one day her husband went to get a paper and the mother fucker
 Bm         G
never came back
Em           Bm                  G        Em         Bm           G
mortgage to pay and four kids to raise, keeping the wolf from the door
             Em           Bm                G                    Em
she said the wolf's just a puppy and the door's double locked so why you
Bm              G
gotta worry me for

[Chorus]
                  C                  G                   D
Now he left a in hole in my heart a hole in a promise a hole on the side of
    G
my bed
    C                        G                 D
oh now that he's gone well life carries and I miss him like a hole in the
G
head

[Bridge]
C                             G                  D
  well sometimes you can't change and you can't choose
C                                G               D
  and sometimes it seems you gain  less than you lose

[Outro]
               Am           C                      G            D
Well we've got holes in our hearts, yeah we've got holes in our lives
               Am                C                 G
well we've got holes, we've got holes but we carry on
               Am           C                      G             D
say we've got holes in our hearts, yeah we've got holes in our lives
               Am               C                    G
well we've got holes, we've got holes, but we carry on
               Am           C                      G            D
say we've got holes in our hearts, yeah we've got holes in our lives
               Am                C                 G
say we've got holes, we've got holes but we carry on

Do you play the entire strum pattern for a chord when it is labeled? Or how do you know when to switch? Sorry Im new to guitar

This may be a bit late, but it's
Em = DDU
D/F# = DDU (what the person referred to as Bm)
G = DDUUDU
