There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
There's a nicer version in Dmajor Tuning that I'll post on here soon, but below is a 
version in standard tuning which I tweaked from another entry on U.G. The Em7 below is 
debatable. Suggestions welcome.

CAPO on 3

[Verse 1]

        Am                      G       C
When my blood runs warm with an old red wine
   G                   Am    F
I miss the life that I left behind
           Am                    G           C
And when I hear the sound of the blackbird's cry
  G                  F       C
I know I left in the nick of time


[Verse 2]

          Am                  G       C
Well this road I'm on's gonna turn to sand
    G                  Am       F
And leave me lost in a far-off land
          Am                    G          C
So let me ride the wind 'till I don't look back
       G                   F      C
And forget the life that I almost had


[Pre-Chorus]

     F       Am     C
If I wander 'till I die
      F          Am        F
May I know whose hands I'm in
          F         Am    C
And if my home I'll never find
G           F     C
Then let me live again


[Chorus]

    C                     F           G
The longer I run then the less that I find
            C          F          G
Selling my soul for a nickel and dime
C                    F                  G
Breaking my heart to keep singing these rhymes
    G      Am
And losing again

    C                     F           G
The longer I run then the less that I find
            C          F          G
Selling my soul for a nickel and dime
C                    F                  G
Breaking my heart to keep singing these rhymes
    G      Am
And losing again


[Verse 3]

        Am                    G        C
Tell my brother please not to look for me
  G                    Am       F
I ain't the man that I used to be
          Am                      G       C
But if my saviour comes could you let him know
       G              F       C
I've gone away for to save my soul

[Pre-Chorus]

     F       Am     C
If I wander 'till I die
      F          Am        F
May I know whose hands I'm in
          F         Am    C
And if my home I'll never find
G           F     C
Then let me live again

[Chorus]

    C                     F           G
The longer I run then the less that I find
            C          F          G
Selling my soul for a nickel and dime
C                    F                  G
Breaking my heart to keep singing these rhymes
    G      Am
And losing again

    C                     F           G
The longer I run then the less that I find
            C          F          G
Selling my soul for a nickel and dime
C                    F                  G
Breaking my heart to keep singing these rhymes
    G      Am
And losing again

Couple of things:

That Em7 you said was debatable I think is actually another F (or at least that's where the bass note lies). not entirely sure.

For the chorus, I feel rather than C-F-C it is C-F-G repeating over until the end of the 2nd chorus which it then goes to an Am.

Just my take on it.

Otherwise, spot on as far as i can tell
