Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Okay I'm almost positive this is the exact way to play keep the car running on guitar. This is an
awesome song, but no one had the right chords so here it is. The first thing to 
keep in mind is that you have to tune the guitar weird to play it like the guy in 
Arcade Fire does.

Tuning (from low to high): E, A, C#, F#, B, F#
Capo on third fret!

These are the chords you use. They don't look anything like the regular guitar chords so pay
attention!

D maj.      Gsus2       A maj.

Intro:
Strum D major

Verse 1:
D
Every night my dream's the same

Same old city with a different name
Gsus2
Men are coming to take me away
D
I don't know why but I know I can't stay

Interlude (just strum D)

Verse 2:
D
There's a weight that pressing down

Late at night you can hear the sound
Gsus2
Even the noise you make when you sleep
D
Can't swim across a river so deep
Gsus2
They know my name 'cause I told it to them

But they they don't know where and they don't know
D
When it's comin', when it's comin'

Interlude

Verse 3:
D
There's a fear I keep so deep

I knew its name before I could speak:
Gsus2
Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah,

Interlude

Gsus2
They know my name 'cause I told it to them

But they don't know where and they don't know

Interlude

Gsus2              D        Gsus2
When it's coming, oh! when it's coming
