Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Standard Tuning-
Key of C

Intro:
C Csus4 C Csus4 x2
(basically play C and add your 4th finger one fret above your ring finger,
you can almost always pull this trick off, no matter the key)

(had a hard time finding the lyrics,
figured these out on my own and they might not be correct.)
Song:
C                              Csus4               C
you left for work each morning before the sun came up
C                                  Csus4           C
you put your forty years in but it wasn't quite enough
C                               Csus4       C
you put a couple bucks down when you got a hutch
       C                         Csus4      C
and I never heard you complaining all that much
-
Am                  F              G
It hits me in the spring of every year
Am                        F      G
I think about you and I wonder where
Am                          F         G
Your life has taken you are you still here
Am                               F          Em     C
I thought your work was done but now it'd become clear to me

...To me!

Every day you walked back to brand back with your lunch
                              F               C
I never said that much but it must have been enough
                                                 F               C
you have some skits and mats(???) and pills and had to be real tough
                                          F        C
And I never heard you talking 'bout your life too much

Now I've grown up I got a family on my own
                                          F        C
I go to work each morning and I tip the weight of stone
                                       F           C
I took those to the stock(?) and I'm feeling all alone
                                        F             C
I think about the way you worked your fingers to the bone

...HEY!

(ending: Play the ending part over and over until you feel like not doing that anymore,
then do C to F, to C, and HEY!)

First Tab, As I said, the lyrics are a bit off.
Or maybe a lot off. Feel free to PM me better ones ;)
