Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ

Change the B note (second fret) to C (third fret) in the G chord to make 
it Gsus4.  Early in the song he sticks to the low strings on the guitar
chords, but later, for effect, I like to just play all the strings.
Here's about how I strum, but it's probably easiest just to strum by ear.

Em C G-Gsus4 G-Gsus4

Em                         C
ten years older than I was what I brought you down to see,
G             -Gsus4                  G      -Gsus4       
what I thought would make you fall in love
Em                        C
wearing off on our dreams someday man I’m gonna be
   G        -Gsus4          G       -Gsus4
no different than the other rivers
Em                     C      
I tried to look at you but I couldn’t break the ice
G            -Gsus4             G          -Gsus4
you stood out there for an hour freezing
Em                           C
put your hand around my back I guess you thought I needed that

G -Gsus4  G -Gsus4 

G                    C        
    I never tried to find you
                       G                                     C
and I hope you don't remember me and I hope you’re not alone

Em C G-Gsus4 G-Gsus4

Em                              C
wanted me to take you home. you said you'd rather be alone
G        -Gsus4           G -Gsus4
  I never thought of that
Em
car was warm and we had wine
    C                           G
but I couldn't find the perfect song
Em                  C
now I own furniture for worn crows feet 
      G           -Gsus4      G    -Gsus4
and I can't even remember the car
Em                               C
sometimes I can feel your weight when i close my eyes
G          -Gsus4       G    -Gsus4
seven times I was under you

G                    C        
    I never tried to find you
                       G                                     C
and I hope you don't remember me and I hope you’re not alone
    G                                C
and I don't wanna know what your thinking
                    G                    C
I’m looking out the window--drinkin’ drinkin’ drinkin’

Em C G-Gsus4 G-Gsus4

Em                            
shallow frame and shaky sticks 
    C                         G-Gsus4  G-Gsus4
but I know there's a river in me
Em                     
shallow minded adult tricks 
    C                         G-Gsus4  G-Gsus4
but I know there's a river in me
Em                           
shallow frame and shaky sticks 
    C                         G-Gsus4  G-Gsus4
but I know there's a river in me

G                    C
    I never tried to find you
                       G                                     C
and I hope you don't remember me and I hope you’re not alone
    G                                C
and I don't wanna know what your thinking
                    G                    C               Em
I’m looking out the window--drinkin’ drinkin’ drinkin’
