Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
okay so i used the Youth and Revolt cover (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7duKnpLD-g0) of this to figure 
out some parts of the song but the rest is by ear. it is in standard tuning and is 100% accurate. and last 
of all these are not the chords real names i'm just using them so you know what i mean.

[Intro]
One, two, three, four!

[Verse 1]
E
Hubcaps and ashtrays,
Dm E  C#m        Dm  E    B 
I was born but I wasn't raised.
E
The big wheel, the black space,
Dm   E   C#m     Dm  E     B 
Tried my best but wasn't praised.

[Pre-Chorus]
A                        (mute)
Hell is so close to Heaven,
A
Hell is so close to Heaven.

[Chorus]   
E        B                C#m 
Hold on, don't look back,
               A
You know we're better, we're better than that.
E        B            C#m 
Lost and thrown away,
               A
You know we're better, we're better than that.
B#m    B          A 
We are the strays, woah oh oh,
B#m    B        A
We are the strays.

[Verse 2]
E
Train tracks to the stage
Dm E  C#m         Dm  E    B 
Play that role, the one you made
E
Long nights and the worst days
Dm E  C#m         Dm  E    B 
Lived it all, but didn't break

[Pre-Chorus]
A                        (mute)
Hell is so close to Heaven,
A
Hell is so close to Heaven.

[Chorus]
E        B                C#m 
Hold on, don't look back,
               A
You know we're better, we're better than that.
E        B            C#m 
Lost and thrown away,
               A
You know we're better, we're better than that.
B#m    B          A 
We are the strays, woah oh oh,
B#m    B           A
We are the strays.

[Hook]
F#m                            A
My whole life they said I'd be nothing,

Well I'm something.
Ab
And I would rather be the stray
        A
Than be nothing to no one at all.

[Instrumental]
E Dm E G Dm E B 

[Bridge]
E
Hubcaps and ashtrays,
Dm E  C#m         Dm  E    B 
I was born, but wasn't raised.

[Chorus]
E        B                C#m 
Hold on, don't look back,
             A
You know we're better, we're better than that.
E        B            C#m 
Lost and thrown away,
              A
You know we're better, we're better than that.
B#m    B          A 
We are the strays, woah oh oh,
B#m    B        A    E
We are the strays.

Great song! I would make just a few corrections:Instead of using the G chord, I would use C#m, with this form:(In both the verse and chorus)E|-0-| a|-4-| d|-6-| g|-6-| b|-5-| e|-0-| Also, in the Hook I would change Ab for F#m ,with this form:E|-0-| a|-4-| d|-4-| g|-2-| b|-2-| e|-0-| Maybe you got it right, just tabbed it wrong, but for it sounds better with those changes.I hope it was helpful xD

Great song! I would make just a few corrections:

Instead of using the G chord, I would use C#m, with this form:
(In both the verse and chorus)

E|-0-|
a|-4-|
d|-6-|
g|-6-|
b|-5-|
e|-0-|

Also, in the Hook I would change Ab for F#m ,with this form:

E|-0-|
a|-4-|
d|-4-|
g|-2-|
b|-2-|
e|-0-|

Maybe you got it right, just tabbed it wrong, but for it sounds better with those changes.

I hope it was helpful xD
