There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This song is largely based around three chords

E  -  022100
A  -  002220
B  -  224442
F# -  244322
G# -  466544
C# -  466644
D# -  668886

the pattern is played over each line in these places

chorus (main part)

E             A               B                     E             A
Stand in the place where you live (now face north) think about direction

wonder why you haven't before

E                  A              B                    E              A
Now stand in the place where you work (now face west)Think about the place

where you live wonder why you haven't before

Verse Example

E                      A           B
Your feet are going to be on the ground

E                      A         B
Your head is there to move you around

E                         A               E
If wishes were trees the trees would be falling

E                   A         E
Listen to reason, season is calling

This chord patter runs thoughtout the rets of the song, the pattern of the verse is the 
throughout and the chorus is the same throughout apart from in the final chorus

Basically there is a key change that occurs, the chorus is played though normally, then 
is a noticable shift.

The "E", "A", "B" combination becomes

"F#", "B", "G#"

and then the final part moves up again to

"G#", "C#", "D#"

The same strumming pattern is used throughout, listen to the CD to alter the pattern to 
the key change towards the end
