Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Song information: the song's signature meter is 12/8. BPM is around 100. Listen to the
song for the strumming pattern and accents (first chord of the bar is louder than the
others). Mostly the pattern consists of downstrokes, but there are variations. Give 
attention to the rhythm.
Play the first chord of the bar fully, the other chords only the 'higher sounding' ones.

Chord voicings:
D: x00232
Asus4: x00230
G: xx0033

D en G actually have other names (D/A, G/D), but I call them D and G for readability of
the chord chart.

              D

Verse3:
D
oh
   Asus4
to owe
    D
not anyone

nothing
   D
to be
    Asus4
not here
    D
but here
forsaking
equatorial bliss
    Asus4
who walked through
   D
the callow mist
Asus4
dressed in scraps
    D
who walked
    Asus4               D
the curve of the world
      Asus4
whose bone scraped
      D
whose flesh unfurled
    Asus4
who grieves not
D
anyone gone
   Asus4 D
to greet lame
    D
the inspired sky
amazed to stumble

where gods get lost
Asus4
beneath

the southern cross
