Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Explanations:
*Intro -> Hold on to the C chord for three beats then walk down on the forth, which is    4   &   1
          why I wrote in a B/C at the end of the intro, it is played on the AND of four.  C  B/C  Am

*Solo -> The timing is not straight forward. The chords I wrote follow what the twangy
         guitar strums in the background, all of which are down strums. {You'll need several good listens}

*Outro -> Same as intro, minus the B/C stuff.


[Intro]

Am C F C G C Am G 
Am C F C G C Am G 
C      C B/C


[Verse 1]

Am               C              F
Gold teeth and a curse for this town 
     C         G              
Were all in my mouth
     C            F            Am   G
Only I don't know how they got out, dear
Am           C        F
Turn me back into the pet 
  C           G
I was when we met
      C       F            Am   G (hold)
I was happier then with no mind set


[Chorus]

               G         C
And if you'd a took to me like
      F     C            G
A gull takes to the wind
            G             C
Well, I'd a jumped from my tree
      F     C             F              C
And I'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
        F           C                 G (hold)
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well


[Verse 2]

Am                 C          F
New slang when you notice the stripes
    C             G
The dirt in your fries
          C              F
Hope it's right when you die
        Am  G
Old and bo..ny
Am                 C                F
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall
  C             G
Never should'a called
       C            F
But my heads to the wall
        Am  G (hold)
And I'm lonely


[Chorus]

               G         C
And if you'd a took to me like
      F     C            G
A gull takes to the wind
            G             C
Well, I'd a jumped from my tree
      F     C             F              C
And I'd a danced like the king of the eyesores
        F           C                 G (hold)
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well


[Verse 3]

Am                C          F
God speed all the baker's at dawn
         C             G
May they all cut their thumbs
          C          F
And bleed into their buns 
           Am   G (hold)
'Till they melt away


[Chorus 2]

            G         C    
I'm looking in on the good life
          F       C           G
I might be doomed never to find
          G              C
Without a trust or flaming fields 
    F    C            G
Am I too dumb to refine?
               G         C
And if you'd a took to me like 
        F   C              F               C
Well I'd a danced like the queen of the eyesores 
        F                C             G
And the rest of our lives would'a fared well


[Solo] 

F   G   F C G (hold)
F       F   G  F C G (hold)   
C (hold)   C B/C


[outro]

Am C F C G C Am G
