Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I prefer Roderick's solo version that he does on tour, so I made chords for that.
Here is the version I did: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fvb6XL-vAM

This is the most ridiculously syncopated song I've ever tried to play, so the chord
location will be off in certain places. I tried to match the sounds and the chords
as best as I could.

The intro is in 4/4. Nice and easy. The verses are in 5/4 time, and the choruses
are (mostly) 2 bars of 7/4, 2 bars of 5/4, 2 bars of 7/4, and 2 bars of 5/4. The
bridge part with the Em is in 3/4.

CAPO 3
D C G D C G x2
D  C         G            D     C
Start with a ticket and a chart 
  G                  D        C    G
Explaining how we're not that far apart
        D       C      G
But you lost me on the way
    D      C             G             D
And though you claim you got a plan to go
  C         G           D      C    G   D C G
I feel your body moving closer even so

    D  C       G               D
But you got to follow your feelings 
C          G                   D      C       G
You should know I don't want to leave just to go
            D            C       G
And I'm not trying to be hard to reach 
     D     C      G D   C   G D C G D C
But I put away my only suitcase

G            D G F G    D      G    F     G        D
  And I said,  Hey, so you, you play too rough but I
C G          D       C G    D  G F   G   D  G
    I wimped out and I  waited   to say so
F   G    D C G     D C G  D C G  D C G
You play too rough

       D           C       G               D
So you sing it the way you want to hear it sung
    C        G           D        C         G
You grab the telephone a minute before it's rung
        D        C    G
And you call out into space saying
D C G          D  C  G
Do  you ever want to run
     D C    G            D    C      G    D C
Well I want to run and I want you to come

G                 D          C
Just as you first came to me
G             A             G
Wearing only perfume and a coat
    A          G          D G F G
And too too much to drink

D G F G x 3

G            D G F G    D      G    F     G        D
  And I said,  Hey, so you, you play too rough but I
C G          D       C G    D  G F   G   D  G
    I wimped out and I  waited   to say so
F   G    D C G     D C G  D C G
You play too rough

D                      G             Em
  Now hope - well it's got me by the throat
             G            D                   G
And all your bicycles are dreaming of their brakes
    Em             G        D  G   Em  G D  G   Em G
But my dreams have all been fakes, oh... fakes, oh

D  C G        D     C   G          D C
  Hey, so you, play too rough but I
G           D       C G    D  C  G     D
   I wimped out and I  waited to  say so
    C    G   D C G D C G
You play too rough

D G
F  G         D G F  G  D   C G D C G
  Hey, so you,    play too rough
D G F  G    D G F      G         D C G   D C G
      Hey, so     you, you play too    rough 

D C G x 7

D      G          Em     G       D     G     C
  But I wimped out and I  waited   to say so

G           D        C       G         D          C
  [pause] I want you just as you first came to me
G             A             G
Wearing only perfume and a coat
    A          G          
And too too much to drink
