Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Tuning: EADGBE (standard).
Capo: 3rd fret.

Riff 1 is played repeatedly throughout Verse 1 and Chorus 1. Each repetition begins where I have denoted 
E chords during those two sections (alternatively, you could just strum E).

[Riff 1]
E|----------------------------|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|--------4--------4-----4----|
A|--------2--------2-----2L---|--2--------2----------------|
E|--0-----------0-----0-------|-----0--------0-----0-------|

Riff 2 is played once during the Outro, beginning at the first G (voiced as E relative to the capo) 
chord during that section. It is immediately followed by a single strum of G (E relative to the capo) to close
out the song.

[Riff 2]

D|----------------------------|--------4-----4-----4-------|

[Verse 1]
E
I'm getting old
E
Worse than before
E
Un-invincible
E
Close but not pitiful
E
I discovered
E
To drink it slowly
E
The great unfolding
E
And wait for their arms to hold me

[Verse 2]
A 
Down the hall
E
Alcohol for free
F#m        A
All alone with me
E
All alone with me

[Chorus 1]
E
You used to be so beautiful
E
But tomorrow dawns for me

[Verse 3]
A
I was there
E
This city far away
F#m               A
Gone are all the pressures of
E
All that comes with getting old

[Chorus 2]
F#m          A               E
You used to be so beautiful
F#m           A            E
But tomorrow dawns for me
F#m                 A            E
And three swallows there for me

[Chorus 3]
F#m                     A
And I used to light my cigarettes
E
On the fire that you had in your eyes
F#m                    A                   E
And I was the king of hanging around with wastes of time
F#m                 A            E
And three swallows there for me

[Outro]
E                                         
And three swallows there for me, for me
       E
For me
