Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I noticed the other person had it really off. I think it was because they were tuned
half a step. So I just took their chords, added a Capo on the 1st fret, and messed with one
the chords then just wrote the rest out. It doesn't sound exactly perfect but it sounds 
than the other guys if you ask me.

Try playing it on Electric if you want, I sounded it all out on my Acoustic. Hope you enjoy!

Capo 1

Am
  Two packs of cigarettes a day
F
  The strongest whiskey Kentucky can make
D5                            F
  That's the recipe to put a vagabond on his hands and knees
Am                                               F
  I watched it all up close, I knew it more than most
  F                               D5
I saw a side of him I could never show
D5                        F
  For the sympathy, for a world that wouldn't let him be
Am
  That's the man he was
F
 Have you heard enough

Chorus:
F       F             F                F  F
 What a shame, what a shame to judge a life that you can't change
F         F                      F
The choir sings the church bells ring
             F                 F
So won't you give this man his wings
F      F                F              F F     F
What a shame to have to beg you to see we're not all the same

F      Am
What a shame

Em--G--C(x2)

             Am
There's a hard life for every silver spoon,
          F
There's a touch of gray for every shade of blue
D5
   That's the way that I see life
             F
If there was nothing wrong then there'd be nothing right
Am                                                 F
  And for this working man, they said could barely stand
                                    D5
There's got to be a better place to land
D5                   F
Some kind of remedy, for a world that wouldn't let him be
Am
That's the man he was
F
Have you heard enough

Chorus

Am-F
Am-F
Am-F
Am-F

Bridge:
Am              D5                  F
God forgive the hands that laid you down
F                    Am
They never knew how, but your broken
D5                  F
Heart can break the sound
F
And change the season
Am                 D5
Now the leaves are falling faster,
F       F
Happily ever after
Am                       D5
You gave me hope through your endeavors
        F                F
And now you will live forever

Chorus

F      F             F
What a shame, what a shame
      F                 F
Cause we're not all the same
F      F             F
What a shame, what a shame
      F                 Am
Cause we're not all the same
*let Em ring out, stroke once*
-End-
