Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
An incredible song I discovered a year or so before it was recorded when I met Terra in person. 
Chords transcribed directly from a video of her playing it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=224&v=WWW-BNd9uV8

All of the "G" chords after F chords are done with a bar chord on the 3rd fret.
The other G's are normal. 

The finger-picking pattern is A   D B D G, with a slight pause between A string and D string.

Enjoy!

[Intro]

C Cadd9 h C C 

[Verse]

C                      G     C       
In a dusty old tent, 7 miles out of town

C                           G            C
I set up my cards, and the wind knocks them down

       Am                     C             F
And I try for the people who want to believe...

    C                        G          C
In miracles, and magic, and life's mysteries

C                         G         C
Now I was born early, I always feel late

C                             G        C
I can never catch up to the promises I make

C                          G      C
And my mama she cried when I ran away

C                                G        C
And when her tears dried it was just another day.


[Chorus]

    F                         G
And I made my living pulling rabbits out of hats

C                          Am
Girls on white ponies and balancing acts

    F
Now I have grown tired

         G            Am
No more tricks up my sleeve

    C
And for my last number 

    G              C
I think I’ll just leave


[Verse]

C                         C          C       
I once had a girl and I loved her a lot

C                               G     C       
She knew my mistakes and she sweetly forgot

       Am                         C          F
Well I tried hard to keep her, I wanted her here

    C                        G          C
But all good magicians make things disappear


[Chorus]

    F                         G
And I made my living pulling rabbits out of hats

C                          Am
Girls on white ponies and balancing acts

    F
Now I have grown tired

         G            Am
No more tricks up my sleeve

    C
And for my last number 

    G              C
I think I’ll just leave


[Refrain]

    F           G                   C                              Am
And I put that smile on the face of young girls and boys wandered into this place

     F                       G
The red velvet curtain hides all of my fears

Am                       D          F            G
And when the show is over they all reappear


[Verse]

C                             G      C       
Please, show me something, I want to believe

C                              G             C
This life of illusion, it's myself I have deceived

       Am                           C        F
And a younger man's daydreams are quickly forgot

      C                        G        C
The tents all come down on a cold empty lot


[Final Chorus]
(Different)

    F                         G
And I made my living pulling rabbits out of hats

C                          Am
Girls on white ponies and balancing acts

    F
Now Time's made me tired,

         G               Am
Took the tricks from my sleeve

    C
And for my last number 

    G              C
I think I’ll just leave
