Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is a piano song translated to guitar, but this works pretty well, I like to pick the bass note and then pluck or strum the rest of the chord

Intro
D D/C Bm A G A D

D                D/C#             Bm                     A
Howard drives a minivan with the cruise ships from Ft. Lauderdale
         G                   A   D
And it's been that way since 1994
D                       D/C#                Bm               A
Does his business on a flip phone with the most obnoxious ringtone
          G             A                 D
I didn't ask but I can tell he's from New York
             Bm                A                    G                 G/F# 
And he spoke proudly of his daughter and that this fall she'd be in college 
              G                 A          D
And that he always wished he'd gotten his degree
         Bm                 A                G              G/F#
You can tell he came from nothing, built a future out of hustling
            G               A               D
And somehow I'm the one you people pay to see

G               D
Oh isn't that just the way it goes
                     A                       Bm
You're dealt a good hand and you get celebrated
G                D    
Oh how am I the only one who knows 
              A                            D   D/C  Bm  A  G  A  D 
I'm half the man of the men who drive me places

D                 D/C#           Bm               A
Danny showed up early fifteen minutes till five thirty
         G                A              D
Making sure that I'd be on my morning flight
             D              D/C#                    Bm              A 
He said he'd love to fix computers, but that he can't until he's fluent
                   G             A             D         
So he spends his driving money taking class at night
            Bm              A                G                 G/F# 
He wore a neatly ironed dress shirt and he helps his kids with homework
           G                A              D 
And deep inside I couldn't help but ask myself
              Bm              A         G             G/F#
Why that at night I'm up on stage, everybody knows my name
                G           A            D 
While Danny's early picking up somebody else

G              D 
Oh isn't that just the way it goes
                    A                 Bm
You're dealt a good hand and you get celebrated
G                D
Oh how am I the only one who knows 
             A                             D   D/C  Bm  A  G  A  D
I'm half the man of the men that drive me places

             D             D/C#           Bm            A
And now everything's not given, I work hard to make my living
              G                A            Bm 
But I'll give credit where I think credits due
       Bm                  A 
Maybe you got dealt a good hand
           G                    G/F#
Maybe you play it the best that you can
     G                Bm       G                  Bm   
But I don't know how far you'd walk without those cards
   G             Bm            A
In Howard and Danny's working shoes

G            D
But that's just the way it goes
                    A                   Bm
You're dealt a good hand and you get celebrated
G                 D 
Oh how am I the only one who knows 
               A                  D   D/C#  Bm  A  G  A  D 
I'm half the man of the men that drive me places
