Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the closing song on the 1975's new album. Beautiful acoustic track. It's all 
finger-picking so I'll just give a rough outline of the pattern played throughout 
the verse and the chords for the chorus.

[Intro/Verse]

e|--------------------3---------------------------------------------3---------|
B|----/3---1----0-------------0-----------------1------------0----------------|
G|-----0---0----0-------------------------0-----------0-----------------------|
D|----------------------------------0h2---------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------3------3------3-----------3-----3------------3-------------|

It's not exactly what he's playing but just mess around with something like this during 
the verse andyou should sound good. If you want to strum just strum a G and hammer on 
the 2nd fret on the D string every once in a while.

Third line of the verse (The Chemicals that make her laugh... Even though her son is gone... 
She just wants to feel something... etc.) it change to a D then Back to a G, something like this:
      

[Verse]    
  
             G
And she lays down on her bedroom floor
    D
The chemicals that make her laugh
                            G
Don't seem to be working anymore
              G
She tries her best, but it hurts her chest
    D
And even though her son is gone
                                     G
She'd like to love her child nevertheless

Just repeat that for all the verses. 


[Chorus]
(The Chorus is where it gets a bit tricky, here's my interpretation of it)

D                                       G     E
And I don't think that's asking for too much
Am               D     G         E             C
And when I go to sleep it's when she begins to weep
      Cm              D            Dmaj7
She's appalled by not loving me at all
C                              D
She wears a frown and dressing gown
              G
When she lays down


(The most important thing is the play the chorus with a sort of descending bass line 
so I finger the chords something like this)

    She's Appalled        by not     loving me at            all
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------3---------3-------------------------|
G|-----------------0----------0---------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------1-----------1--------------4----------4------------------------------|
A|--------3-----3-----3-----3--------5-----5----5-----5-----4---------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


So here's the chords for the entire song:

[Verse 1]

             G
And she lays down on her bedroom floor
    D
The chemicals that make her laugh
                         G
Don't seem to be working anymore


[Verse 2]

              G
She tries her best, but it hurts her chest
    D
And even though her son is gone
                                     G
She'd like to love her child nevertheless


[Verse 3]

           G
My hair is brown, she's scared to touch
    D
And she just wants to feel something
                                        G       E
And I don't think that's asking for too much


[Chorus 1]

Am               D     G         E             C
And when I go to sleep it's when she begins to weep
      Cm              D            Dmaj7
She's appalled by not loving me at all
            C                  D
She wears a frown and dressing gown
              G
When she lays down


[Verse 4]

              G
Well we got a plane, going to see my dad again
    D
She prayed that we fell from the sky
                        G
Simply to alleviate the pain


[Verse 5]

         G 
Over the water, hmm

Over terrain
    D
The engines all go bust, we turned to dust
                      G         E
And I've no reason to complain, yeah


[Chorus 2]

Am                        D
And in the end, she chose cocaine
G      E                C
But it couldn't fix her brain
      Cm                      D          Dmaj7
She's appalled oh she doesn't love me at all
            C                  D
She wears a frown and dressing gown
              G
When she lays down

Instead of E in chorus, play Bmaj7, played as:
