Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The main chord progression is
C C* G G7 Am Am F F (keep in mind that these are 8ths, not 4ths)
For C*, put a pinky on the third fret of the first string, like when you play a G chord.
I recommend playing the G like a G7 with your pinky on the first string, so you only have to shift your fingers
up from the C* and it's easy to switch to G7.

During the verses, you don't have to play the C* and G7, so it's just C G Am F.
Note that every 4th line, the progression is C G Am Am.

C C* G G7 Am Am F F x2

C                    G          Am                 F
I eat cigarettes for breakfast,     and coffee for lunch.
C                       G                     Am           F
For dinner I lay in the dirt and wait for the end times to come.
C                           G                 Am                       F
I wish I could tell you the truth, but when I do it comes out sounding stupid.
C                          G                    Am               Am
But meet me at four in the morning, and see for yourself.
C        G              Am                 F
Sunrise, sunset, that's all I really gotta know.
C                   G            Am                 F
      The rest is a prison       that I build for myself.
C                             G                  Am                          F
On my worst nights, I'd still burn down the city just for a peaceful night's rest.
C                         G                         Am           Am (muted strumming)
But here in your arms, my darling, I think that can wait,        or I hope it can.

C C* G G7 Am Am F F x2

C                         G          Am                 F
We murdered a chicken for breakfast,     and ate it for lunch.
        C                  G                 Am                  F
She was beautiful, she was scrappy, she was      as mean as they come.
      C                          G               Am                    F
And I told her on the way to the chopping block: "Chaos reigns over us all.
    C                          G                      Am            Am
One day I'll be worm food, but Jenny, first it's your turn."
        C            G           Am                          F
There's sunrise, and sunset, and then there's the day that I die.
C                     G          Am                 F
    All the rest is a prison,        or else it's a lie.
      C                      G                Am                  F
At my worst times, I'd still murder a traffic cop to get out of a ticket.
    C                     G                     Am         Am
But here in your arms, my darling, police don't exist,        or I hope they
      C      C*      G      G7      Am      Am      F      F
doooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon't. I hope they

      C      C*      G      G7      Am      Am      F      F
doooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon't. I hope they

      C      C*      G      G7      Am      Am      F      F
doooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon't. I hope they don't.

C C* G G7 Am Am F F
