Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The Gaslight Anthem
Skinny Love
Here Comes My Man

I assume like all of Brian's songs he tunes it down a full step. I'm gonna' tab it 
out standard tuning, with a Capo on the third, because that's where I found it easiest to play.

Standard Chords: Cm Eb Bb Ab
Brian's Chords: Dm F C Bb
Capo III: Am C G F

This is how I play the little riff, it's not completely right, but sounds close.

Riff

Am    C     C/G 3x
 
G      Am


Am       C                        C/G
Come on skinny love, just last the year
Am       C                       C/G
Pour a little salt, we were never here
Am        C                  C/G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my,
G              Am
Staring at the sink of blood, and crushed veneer

Riff

Am        C          C/G
I tell my love to wreck it all
Am        C          C/G
Cut out all the ropes, and let me fall
Am        C          C/G
My, my, my, my, my , my, my, my
G           Am
Right in the moment, this order's tall


C
And I told you to be patient
G         F
And I told you to be fine
C
And I told you to be balanced
G           F
And I told you to be kind
C
And in the morning I'll be with you
G             F
But it will be a different kind
C
And I'll be holding all the tickets
G             F
And you'll be owning all the fines

F

Riff 

Am        C       C/G
Come on skinny love, what happened here
Am        C        C/G
Suckle on the hope, in light brassieres
Am         C       C/G
My, my, my, my, my, my, my,   my
G          F
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split


C
And I told you to be patient
G         F
And I told you to be fine
C
And I told you to be balanced
G           F
And I told you to be kind
C
And in the morning I'll be with you
G             F
But it will be a different kind
C
And now all your love is wasted
G             F
And then who in hell am I
C
And I'm breaking at the britches
G               F
At the end of all your lines


C
Who will love you
G       F
Who will fight
C
Who will fall
G       F
Far behind

Riff

Am       C                        C/G
Come on skinny love, just last the year
Am       C                       C/G
Pour a little salt, we were never here
G                Am

Am
We were never here



They are some slight chord variations, that I'm working on and haven't quite got 
yet. Mostly standard hammers, and pull offs like so:


e---0------3---/---0-----0---/--3--3--3---/
b---1-0----1---/---1--1--1---/--0--1--3---/
g---2-2-2--2---/---0--0--0---/--0--0--0---/
d---2-2-0--2---/---2--0--0---/--0--0--0---/
a---0-0-0--0---/---3--3--3---/--2--0--2---/
E---0----------/---3--3--3---/--3--3--3---/

on Am            on C/G       on G
