There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I listened to the tune and at last I realized that there are mostly only 4 chords that 
in the same pattern. E and C# are powerchords but
A and B are barre chords. That's how they play the song. And as for E and C#
- let the bottom bottom open strings sound. I choosed the tabs difficulty intermediate 
I haven't got tabs for those who don't know how to play barre or powerchords.

E              C#
I open my lungs dear,
A                 B            E C#
I sing this song at funerals, no rush.
A                       B               E C#
These lyrics heard a thousand times, just plush.
A                  B                 E                   C#
A baby boy you've held so tightly, this pain it visits almost nightly.
A              B                 E
Missing hotel beds I feel your touch.

E          C#
I will await dear,
A               B      E     C#
A patient of eternity, my crush.
A            B      E    C#
A universal still, No rust.
A               B
No dust will ever grow on this frame,
E                       C#
One million years I will say your name.
A                   B               E
I love you more than I can ever scream.

B    Ab       A

       E               C#
Booked our flight those years ago,
   A                 B
I said I love you as I left you.
    E             C#
'Grets still haunt my hollow head,
     A          B              E
I promised you I will see you again.

E               C#
I sit here and smile dear,
A                  B              E   C#
I smile because I think of you, I blush.
A                   B             E   C#
These bleeding hollow dials, this fuss.
A                   B
Fuss is made of miles and travels
E                   C#
when roadways are but stones andgravel.
A              B                E
A bleeding heart can conquer every crutch.

B    Ab       A

Booked our flight those years ago,

You said you loved me as you left me.

'Grets still haunt your saddened head

but I promised you I will see you.

Booked our flight those years ago,

I said I loved you and I left you.

'Grets no longer in my head,

But I promised you and now I'm home again, again, again, again, again, again.

I'm home again.
