Very easy song. I'll try and describe the intro & verse strumming pattern.

e-0<----0-0-|-0<----0-0-|-0<----0-0-|-0<----0-0-|
B-0>----0-0-|-0>----0-0-|-3>----3-3-|-2>----2-2-|
G-1<----1-1-|-2<----2-2-|-2<----2-2-|-2<----2-2-|
D-2>----2-2-|-2>----2-2-|-0>----0-0-|-2>----2-2-|
A-2<----2-2-|-2<----2-2-|-----------|-0<----0-0-|
E-0>----0-0-|-0>----0-0-|-----------|-----------|
(Raked)

The strumming matches the vocals. If its 4/4 timing, the rake lasts for three, and 
the other two last for one. Hope you understand that.
Strumming is just normal for the chorus


[Intro]

E, Esus4, Dsus2, A


[Verse 1]

              E     Esus4 Dsus2  A        E     Esus4 Dsus2  A
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
              E     Esus4                    Dsus2     A       E
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
        
Esus4 Dsus2 A

              E        Esus4 Dsus2    A         E   Esus4 Dsus2 A 
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down 
             E        Esus4            Dsus2                      A
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, 
    E Esus4 Dsus2 A
yeah 


[Chorus]

E                  Esus4           Dsus2           A
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change, 
        E          Esus4       Dsus2      A
but I'm here in my mold , I am here in my mold
        E                   Esus4       Dsus2          A 
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
        E             Esus4    Dsus2    A
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no


[Verse 2]

Well, I've never prayed, 
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah 
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind , I feel free now 
But the airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now


[Chorus]

E                  Esus4           Dsus2           A
No change, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change, 
        E          Esus4       Dsus2      A
but I'm here in my mold , I am here in my mold
        E                   Esus4       Dsus2          A 
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next
        E             Esus4    Dsus2    A
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no


[Verse 1]

              E     Esus4 Dsus2  A        E     Esus4 Dsus2  A
'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life
              E     Esus4                    Dsus2     A       E
Trying to make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
        
Esus4 Dsus2 A

              E        Esus4 Dsus2    A         E   Esus4 Dsus2 A 
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down 
             E        Esus4            Dsus2                      A
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, 
    E Esus4 Dsus2 A
yeah 


[Chorus]

E                 Esus4           Dsus2           A
You know, I can't change, I can't change, I can't change, 
        E          Esus4       Dsus2      A
but I'm here in my mold , I am here in my mold
        E                   Esus4       Dsus2          A 
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
        E             Esus4    Dsus2    A
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no
        E             Esus4    Dsus2    A
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no
        E             Esus4    Dsus2    A
I can't change my mold, no, no, no, no, no

This is actually better than the version that gets 5 stars. These chords sound fine.

I think both versions are useful. This is better if you want an easy version to just strum and sing along, with the other you play the violin melody by picking. Version 2 may be more right but only starts to sound good when you pick the melody at the same time.
