There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I do love this song, and I didn't see a version with the lyrics and chords on the site, so I decided to 
write this out. This version is pretty close to the album, not 100% sure of that Em in the bridge (could be 
just G again, but its easy to play and sounds perfect with the melody. 
The melody riff repeats in spots throughout the song.

[Intro]

(play Riff 6x)

Em  G  A
Em  G  A
Em  G  A


[Verse 1]

Em                    G                A
You know he's not the one for you But that's no fault of mine
Em                   G                          A
He knows that I'm a friend of yours But doesn't know I've crossed the line
Em                  G                         A
I know you've got a man in the picture But it hasn't stopped me yet
Em              G                 A
We've all be in one situation or another We regret


[Chorus 1]

            Em        G          A      
Now I'm the other man  No one's rooting for me
            Em       G        A   
If I'm the other man  Nature will abhor me

Em  G  A


[Verse 2] 

Em                  G                           A
You know I want to keep my distance 'Cause it's happening anyway
Em                    G                       A
He knows you're gonna drift apart And there's nothing he can say
Em                   G                      A
I know that he's a stand up guy But that's none of my concern
Em                 G                A
We've all been in one situation or another It's my turn


[Chorus 2]

          Em        G       A      
To be the other man  No one sympathizes
                Em       G      A            A
When you're the other man  Everyone despises


[Bridge]

                 C                      G 
He's gonna find out that the rumors are true
                 C                    G
Although they are still unbeknownst to you
           C                      G
He'll find out so I'll tell you because
               Em              A
You gotta find out before he does


[Verse 3]

Em                  G                         A
I know you've got a man in the picture But it hasn't stopped me yet
Em               G                A
We've all be in one situation or another We regret


[Chorus 3]

            Em        G          A      
Now I'm the other man  No one's rooting for me
            Em        G        A      
If I'm the other man   Nature will abhor me


[Outro/Chorus]

Em        G         A      
Yeah       No one sympathizes 
                Em        G       A      
When you're the other man   Everyone despises
Em      G               A      
Yeah 
Em                G                   A 
We've all been in one situation or another
Em                G                   A      
We've all been in one situation or another
Em                G                   A      
We've all been in one situation or another
